Holiday Foyer Fix-Ups

Here’s how to make a holiday entrance!

A beautifully-adorned stairway garland sets a festive, elegant mood and greets your holiday guests in style.

With the holidays fast approaching, now’s the time to spruce up an important (yet often overlooked) part of your home—the foyer.  Whether your home’s entry is large, small or somewhere in between, it’s the place where first impressions are formed and moods are made.  Put your most stylish foot forward and your guests into a happy holiday groove with foyer fix-ups like these.

Create a focal point by painting the interior side of your front door in a color other than white. Better Homes & Gardens.

A two-tone vibrantly colored front door gives hint to what lies beyond it in this small, yet dramatic foyer.

Opposites attract. Hooker Furniture.

By pairing crisp white with moody charcoal and sweet honey maple, this foyer’s uptown urban feel is perfect for the Curata Credenza, a swanky storage piece that has a smooth marble top and soft upholstered frame with doors stitched in a bold graphic pattern.

Jewelry for the wall. Cynthia Rowley for Hooker Furniture.

With a frame shaped like gold interlocking bracelets, the Bangle Mirror  is a wow statement piece that gleams while guests preen before stepping into the party scene.

By reflecting light, mirrored decor like this can brighten dark entry areas. Hooker Furniture.

A Belgium-inspired piece with glam sensibilities, the Boheme Duvel accent chest, coming soon from Hooker Furniture has antique mirrored drawer fronts that sparkle. Its top drawer is felt-lined (ideal for storing silver). Other drawers are deep enough to house lots of linens. Duvel also has a built-in USB port, so guests can park and charge their cell phones!

Small but mighty. And tidy. The Melange Dixon writing desk. Hooker Furniture.

Sized right for long, narrow foyers, the Melange Dixon Writing Desk  writing desk is more than a place to pen a note. It can also corral handbags and other stuff guests arrive with, hold take-home party favors and display holiday decor.

A fresh, fabulous look for foyers of any size. Better Homes & Gardens.

Add pops of color with an unexpected holiday palette of lime green, yellow and white.

Small entry areas need space-savers like the Melange Carter Etagere. Hooker Furniture.

The Melange Carter Metal Etagere goes all in on vertical display, towering 74” above the floor with a stack of spacious fixed-glass shelves.

Small foyer? A spot table like the Amani Accent Table is spot on. Hooker Furniture.

With its mix of natural materials like stone, sand-blasted capiz shells, jute rope and pecan wood, the Amani Accent Table adds an organic sensibility while serving as a catch-all for keys and gloves.

Chairs invite guests to relax and linger. Hooker Furniture.

The Beaumont Shield-Back Chair shield-back arm chair is a pretty perch for guests as they check cell phone messages away from the party hoopla. In larger foyers, flank a spot table with two chairs to create a cozy spot for guests to enjoy drinks and snacks.

Invite nature in. Better Homes & Gardens.

Rustic yet modern, these holiday accents add a forest-fresh feel that will put a smile on the faces of all who enter in.

This holiday season, make an entrance. With foyer fix-ups like these, it’s easy to do.
