Foyer Paint Color Ideas - A Spectacular Stairway

E-mail to a Friend Add to Favorites Print

With our designers' warm foyer paint color ideas, this classic entryway beautifully complements the graceful, sweeping staircase - creating a welcoming space to greet guests.

High-ceilinged, open areas, such as this entranceway, are ideal spaces to indulge your foyer color ideas with beautiful, rich hues. Our golden wall color also provides the perfect backdrop for crisp white trim that defines and showcases the statement staircase and leaded-glass door.

We've kept accessories to a minimum, to keep the visual focus on the dramatic presence of the curved stairway. A substantial round table in the same elegant walnut wood found in the stairs' detailing rests on a simple, plush, circular rug. Flourishes of gold leaf on the table echo the walls' sunlit hues, as does the lush bouquet of golden blossoms that adorn the tabletop. The curvaceous lines of the table and rug complement the stairway's sinuous lines and allow our entryway color ideas to for a stunning, cohesive look.

  2. Roll on the color for the walls. Allow to dry.
