Why this Works: A Bold & Beautiful Foyer

Ever look at a beautiful room and wonder how did they do that – and, more importantly, how can I do something similar at home? We break down how to outfit a mudroom that feels just as beautiful as the rest of your home:
Be fearless. The benefit of a small transitional space in your home? It’s a spot to take design risks and have fun. While this space welcomes you home, it’s not an area you’re going to be spending a ton of time in, so use a bold colors and patterns that bring you joy.
Have a seat. A patterned bench not only helps to tie the colors in the room together, it’s a perfect place to slip in and out of your shoes. It’s also an ideal place to stashl bags and backpacks. A natural rope tray works well to corral mail, keys, and other small items.
Pick up a paint brush. Looking for dazzling, saturated colors—paint gives you so much attitude for the cost of a gallon.This two-tone look uses Benjamin Moore hues Razzle Dazzle and Picante.
Add a neutral rug. You’ll never regret a textured rug in a neutral tone. They’ll never go out of style and, in this case, help balance out the bright colors and patterns in this room.
Don’t forget the art! A beautiful piece of wall art helps balance all the colors of this room together. A piece from an artist like Cynthia Wick is a dynamic conversation starter. "I would like to live in this room, because I like intense color,” says Wick. “It's like the flower topiary in the painting is talking to the pineapples and they're about to do the Samba! I can hear the ocean in this room."
