This is how I want to open up my entryway into the frontroom!
High ceilings and arches are dramatic and the height of early Western cultural design. This foyer has both! What better way to impress guests. I’ve heard the White House in D.C. called the ultimate home court advantage because when dignitaries come to visit they are floored by the beautiful Western columns, arches and other features. That’s what I see here.
First impressions are lasting impressions and an elegant, dramatic foyer will leave your guests swooning. There is a lot of natural light in this entryway making it seem that much bigger, and the archway design even carries over to the front door. I’ve heard of scientific equipment that tracks pupil movement so that scientists can follow points of most interest in their test subjects. I can image, on entry, guests would first look up at the ceiling, then the elegant chandelier and painted ceiling, then the rest of the room and the wood floors. Any entryway that can boast these features will speak to the appreciation of opulence and design of the owners. What’s more, any guest would feel excited to see what else might be awaiting them in the adjoining rooms. Now that is an adventure I would want to go on.
