Q & A Thursday: Foyer Transformation

Q & A:

How can I transform this old and boring foyer. We just purchased this century old home that needs a lot of TLC. I have 4 kids so need storage and my favourite colour is green, would that work?

Thank you,

Sarah J from Mississauga,ON

Hi Sarah,

Your foyer has so much potential. We suggest some custom built-ins to maximize your storage, seating and a few hooks for jackets, etc. A tile floor would be much more practical as well, perhaps a dark slate palette. By painting out the inside of your front door in a deep charcoal will create a focal point as well.

Painted Brick Entrance

“You know that awkward brick entrance/sunroom in the front of your home when an addition or porch has been put on, what colour should I paint the brick, flooring and door?”

We get asked this questions quite a bit, especially with older homes.

When painting brick, especially in an open space with windows…you always want it to flow with the existing brick. To create this unifying look, we suggest painting the brick the colour of the existing mortar. Usually a taupe. In this case we love the idea of Woodcliff Lake 980 by Benjamin Moore.

Because it’s a deep taupe, painting the floor a creamy tone give it a nice balance.

This homeowner loved the idea of charcoal accessories such as the area rug and gold accents so painted the door in Goldsmith CSP-960 by Benjamin Moore.
