When it comes to choosing a foyer or entry wall colors it all depends of the size of your space and how open or closed it is. I am quite conservative when it comes to a large and open two-story foyer. Your entry is a transitional space with many cuts, such as doors,doorways and stairs. So, if you make it too dramatic all these broken lines will make your eyes tired. So I stick with neutrals or light colors. But for a small, cozy entry you can be more brave. Here are some examples for you:
If You Have a Large Entryway
you do not want to overpower it with color. Highlight architectural details of the house, display your art, personal pictures and collections. Do not overwhelm your foyer with color but rather keep it quite simple.
Here are some samples for two storied entries and Benjamin Moore color choices for each of them.
Fresh, airy and clean, this wall color is so universal that any eclectic details will work here. Now you can introduce contemporary classics with traditional and historical elements. Even ethnic and nomad accessories and found objects will look good because of the all inclusive quality of this pretty wall paint color.
Cozy and Warm
Earthy, simple, warm and universal, this wall color works with green, blue, burgundy, red, chocolate and cream. It is mostly used within interiors where tradition is strong and you want to mix different wood finishes and collectibles.
When white color is what you need for simplicity and clarity, this color is a perfect neutral without being too gray or too stark. It looks the best in Regal Select and provides for smooth and pretty coverage.
The name of this color speaks for itself. It is pure classic and works beautifully with delicate antique gold of the collected items and art. If you wish to display a collection, this is a perfect choice of wall paint color. More emphasis will be achieved if you keep all the elements in your foyer within the same monochromatic tones. Then your collection will show its authentic quality.
Pretty and Simple
Pretty and simple, this color is used with any decor. It can be very pretty with blues and teals. For more impact and whimsical look combine milk chocolate shades with hot pink furniture or accessories.
For a sunny, warm look use pretty cream paint color that does not look yellow. It will look different under different light but still keep its cheerful quality.
For regal, high contrast, renaissance look that is quite formal, this wall paint color will do a splendid job when used with power colors, such as white and black. Confident geometric lines, solid fabrics add to graphic qualities as they multiply strong visual effect.
If Your Entry is Small
For a small entryway you can be a little more bold and use unexpected finishes. Below are some examples of striped walls for the foyer.
