Foyer

The foyer is the first room to greet us, our friends and family, and guests when we enter our homes. Use the walls of the foyer to display a collection of art work. If you have a double-height foyer or a open staircase, use the height to hang more art or bigger pieces. Here are 8 gorgeous foyers as art galleries.

The foyer is a perfect place for a gallery wall, especially if the foyer has high ceilings. Carrying the art up the stairs helps make the foyer feel bigger.

Closely hung white frames create a tight arrangement in this hall. A lot of art can be hung in the way in a smaller space. Lots of white, in both the frame and the mat, keep the wall feeling neat.

Love the mix of art and objects in this dramatic gray foyer. The mix of natural linen and darker frames paired with classic frame lights looks fantastic. Notice the two different styles of hanging frames on the adjoining walls.

One option for art in a smaller space is to chose a single type of art, black and white prints, and frame it in the same way to create one large piece of art. In this tiny foyer, the art gallery wall is seen in the glow from a cool industrial pendant light.

A mix of frames all in a modern clean style with white mats creates a unified look despite the different frame colors.

Create a memory wall in your foyer with photographs of family and friends. Even a narrow wall can become a statement wall when hung floor to ceiling with framed art.

Art of course does not just mean paintings, prints and photographs. Vintage signage and charming printables are great choices to greet guests and family in a foyer.

The gold tone frames of the art work nicely coordinates with the lantern light fixture in this foyer. Using one frame size keeps the gallery wall uniform.
