Entrance & Foyer
The word “lifeless” might come to mind when looking at the before images of this entrance and foyer. But that was before we got our hands on it. This entrance and foyer was lacking life and colour, but we managed to turn that around during this renovation. It is generally known that darker paint colours tend to make rooms see smaller than they are, while lighter colours make rooms seem bigger than what they actually. The same goes for different types of wallpapers in which certain ones may make a room seem smaller, whereas others make a room seem bigger. To some, a patterned wallpaper can seem like a huge risk, but they can really add a ton of character and personality to a space. This double volume space was perfect for a patterned, vertically striped wallpaper.
As you may know by reading our previous blog posts and seeing our previous work… We LOVE to use greenery indoors. We actually have a whole blog post dedicated to it! If you would like to read more about that, click here. We added some potted plants to add some greenery and bring life into the space. The piano fitted perfectly into the space and will provide for hours of music and fun. The music will carry beautifully up into the double volume space. We decorated the upstairs landing and foyer with a light wood dark table. This was finished off with an array of hand picked vases, greenery and a lantern. Not only is the lantern beautiful, but will also help with the pesky ‘load shedding!’ Our clients are greeted with an entrance and landing that will always make them smile, and feel instantly relaxed.
