Don’t forget sound! Chimes tinkling in the wind on a front porch or the gong of a grandfather clock in a foyer adds depth and a sense of wholeness to your home. Make sure you try out the piece first to ensure that you find the sound pleasing. For example, some wind chimes sound earthy and comforting, while others can be loud, metallic and irritating.
Let there be light. Don't skimp on your foyer lighting. One of those flush mounted types that look like a dinner plate isn't going to win over anyone. Select a fixture that makes a statement and defines the area, as does this handsome lantern. P.S. I have that MIRROR!!!!! Never thought of using it alone!
