Your foyer serves as a visitor’s introduction to your home, so it makes sense that you would want to find lighting that would create a memorable, inviting, and stylish impression! Ceilings are one of the most underutilized aspects of home décor, but this unique and modern chandelier creates that first impression you are striving for!
When you are choosing a lighting fixture for your foyer, you’ll need to take into account size of the foyer. Although this foyer isn’t very wide, the chandelier is on par with the scale of the space, which is what makes it work well.
The neutral color tone of the piece works perfectly here. The color reflects the natural light that comes through the front door, making the foyer appear bright and airy, complementing the white color of the walls and lightening the effect of the dark flooring. It even complements the light tone of the wood seen in the picture frames.
Because of its fun and funky shape, it draws your eye upward when you walk in, and the decorative accents give it that perfect hint of “bling”. The design of the chandelier is contemporary, but when used correctly, contemporary doesn’t have to translate to cold or uninviting!
