Large Foyer Walls

If you have a home with a two-story foyer, you may have contemplated whether or not to somehow “decorate” those large, bare walls. If you are ready to take the plunge, but are not sure exactly what to do, consider these options:
-You can use ogee molding to break up the space in various sized and shaped “boxes”, and either paint or paper inside the boxes, or leave them plain.
-A more expensive option would be to have wood paneling applied. A design would need to be drawn up, and a professional craftsman would then make the pieces and install them.
-If you would rather keep it simple and put some art work on the walls, there are many options that are inexpensive yet interesting. Let it express your taste and who you are. When shopping, consider the size of the wall, and have the artwork fill a good portion of it, otherwise it will look lost on the wall. The three pieces shown here were taken out of the client’s master bedroom since the colors no longer worked in there. How wonderful that they found a great new home!

Traditional "boxes" can add a little bit of interest to plain walls.
