3 Ways to Decorate Your Foyer for the Holidays
Your foyer is the first impression you give to your house guests, so during the holidays it’s *extra* important to make sure everything is organized, inviting and shows off a bit of sparkle. Think: metallic light fixtures, holiday scented candles and a massive dose of cozy textures like faux fur, velvet and chunky weaves. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to give your foyer a festive makeover, fit for all your holiday entertaining. Scroll down to see how we’d style a foyer for a boho-chic space, minimalist abode and preppy home.
Boho babes, rock the holidays with sparkly geodes and colorful agate wall art. Create a friendly and inviting atmosphere with a few quirky accessories, like a woven pouf for guests to perch on, a kilim rug and a trendy monstera plant. Brighten up the space with a spicy Christmas candle and a gold tray to hold your keys.
