5 Fabulous Ideas To Give Your Foyer a Face-Lift, Straight From Instagram
Sep 10, 2021
We love the feeling of walking into a foyer that’s perfectly styled. Unfortunately, entryways are one of those spaces that seem to be in a constant state of chaos—especially after months of gardening, football practices, beach and pool days, and more.
If you’re ready to sweep out the sand and soil and polish up your entryway, then you’re going to love this week’s Instagram-inspired decor trends. With gorgeous statement pieces and small must-have accents, this list has a style upgrade for your foyer that’s within every budget.
1. Funky railings
Looking to go big and mix up your decor? Then you just might like this funky railing inspiration from @theryanhaus_.
“With so many homes featuring a staircase as soon as you walk in the door, more and more homeowners are looking to make their railings a statement,” says designer and co-founder Betsy Moyer of Retreat Designs. “Ornate iron railings are falling to the wayside as combinations of rustic and modern flood into the zeitgeist.
“From this mix of weathered wood and horizontal cable, to the more art deco pattern–inspired wrought iron, I’m liking what I’m seeing with these new funky railings,” she adds.

2. Leather organizing baskets
These trending leather baskets from @celebratedspaces are so cute there’s basically no reason not to snag a few (especially since they also make storage stylish—a win-win).
“We are all about extra storage looking like art,” says Moyer. “Elements in repetition always create a visual balance that the eye loves. Selecting a natural, textural material like sea grass or leather hides the colorful contents and keeps the palette peaceful, plus it provides great options for entryway clutter.”

3. Concrete accent table
Concrete has been all over the outdoor decor scene for a while—and now, thanks to design-savvy influencers like @bloomandbabe, it’s made a debut inside, specifically in the foyer.
“A concrete table adds a sense of strength and stability to the room,” says designer Andra DelMonico, of Trendey. “Concrete easily blends with a variety of interior design themes—from industrial, rustic, elegant, or even bohemian. Look for a concrete piece that creates a presence but won’t be too visually heavy in the room.”

4. Extra-large wall clock
Big clocks aren’t just for train stations, and @homesweet4everhome offers the proof.
“Adding an oversized clock is an easy solution for an empty wall,” says DelMonico. “The clock is both decorative and functional—perfect for entryways as a focal point over a console table. Skip the overused standard large wall clock and opt for something creative.”

5. Vanity-inspired bench
There’s something incredibly nostalgic about a vanity bench, and @scoutdesignstudio is here to show us just how well it works in the entryway.
“The vanity bench is a great style moment,” says Moyer. “It acts as another surface to fill the space beneath the console and naturally doubles as spare seating when you need a lingering goodbye at the door or spare seating for a holiday party.”
