Entries, Foyers, Hallways, and Stairs. Oh My!

What to do with entries, foyers, hallways and stairways? And what do they all have in common?

These areas are transitional spaces and lend incredible opportunities. For foyers and stairs I like to go for big impact with a statement light fixture, bold gesture rug, or compelling art piece. Make these areas dynamic and compelling. For hallways I like to create rhythm with art installations that run the length of the hall and expand the space. Photo galleries and salon style hangings are perfect and create a lot of energy and interest. Above all favoring a clean aesthetic and I pick of colors and subjects from the destination rooms and follow that thread throughout these transition areas. The designs below by K. Rocke Design.
