A foyer makes a home’s first impression. It is the first area a visitor sees when the front door opens. It is also the first space a homeowner sees when returning from outside.

Imagination is key when decorating the foyer. “I get excited about foyers,” says interior designer Eloise Kubli, owner of Collective Construction & Design in Plantation. “You don’t spend a lot of time in them, so you don’t need to be as practical as in other areas of the home. You can do things that are more creative and dramatic.”

Decorative wood or stone medallion floor inlays can help define the foyer. “If you can’t do something permanent like an inlay, use an area rug,” Kubli says. Ceiling details can also add definition. “Coffered ceilings are nice, or you can paint the ceiling a darker color with a border,” Kubli says.

Illumination is important to the overall décor. continued
