When it comes to choosing a foyer or entry wall colors it all depends on the size of your space and how open or closed it is.
A large and open two-story foyer is a transitional space with many cuts, such as doors, doorways, and stairs. Needless to say that if you make it too dramatic with a paint color, 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 braver.
Here are some examples:
A spacious entryway doesn’t have to have a paint color that is too bright or too dark. Considering that the architectural “bones” are strong, it’s enough to highlight the space with the display art or personal photos and collections. Frankly, it’s not a good idea to overwhelm your two-story foyer with color but rather keep the paint color scheme simple.
Fresh, airy and clean, this wall color is so universal that any eclectic details will work here.
Small Cozy and Warm Entry
Earthy, simple, warm and universal, this wall color works with green, blue, burgundy, red, chocolate and cream. It is especially popular when you want to mix different wood finishes, for instance, dark and blond wood.
Light and Bright
When you desire simplicity and clarity, the white paint color is what you want. Bone White is a perfect neutral without being too gray or too stark. It looks the best in Regal Select and provides for smooth coverage.
True to its name Classic Gray 1548 is a soft gray color. As a classical paint color, it certainly works with delicate antique gold of the collected items. If you wish to display a collection, this is a perfect choice of a backdrop wall paint color.
Pretty and Simple in Beige and Off-White
Carrington Beige is one of the most popular paint colors as it can look good with any decor. For example, it can be very pretty with blues and teals.
Cream Tones for a Formal Foyer
If you crave a sunny, warm look use a pretty cream paint color that does not look yellow. Please note- 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. In addition, confident geometric lines, solid fabrics add to graphic qualities as they multiply a strong visual effect. Because of dramatic colors and finishes go easy with accessories.
Because a small entryway allows for more drama, you can be a little bolder and use unexpected finishes. Below are some examples of striped walls for the foyer.
