Fabric roller shades can tie entryway into other rooms
May 9 2011
Whether it's called the entry, foyer or vestibule, the entrance to one's home provides the first impression a visitor will have of the owner's decorating style.
An entryway can be elaborate or simple, but should tie into the rest of the home's decor.
"Since the entryway is what your guests will see right away, make sure the furniture, paint color, and seating that you choose sends the right message," states HouseBeautiful.com.
The entrance to a home can be traditional and formal or rustic and simple. One way to tie the style into the rest of the house is to use some of the same elements. If hooked rugs are used in other rooms, a hooked area rug in the foyer will be a good choice.
The furniture in a foyer can be as simple as an arrangement of a small entry table or bookcase topped by a mirror, artwork or a striking centerpiece. Choose a surface large enough to hold the house keys and mail if that's the main entry for homeowners as well as visitors. Setting out a basket or decorative container for this purpose keeps the surface attractive and organized.
Installing fabric roller shades is another way to tie in an entryway window to nearby rooms. The same fabric can be used as the unifying feature.
