In our blog series, “Picture This,” we use the magic of Photoshop to present our artists’ latest artwork in a whole new light.
In this installment of the series, we offer our recommendations on how to set the tone for your home with thoughtful art installations in your foyer. So if you’re on the hunt for inspiration, or if you’re looking for new ways to liven up the entryway to your home, we hope you’ll start start with these fresh, stunning Gallery MAR artworks in these stunning foyers.
For a statement of grandeur when entering the home, we recommend a large, bold piece like this work 80″ x 48″ piece, “Beyond IV” by Matt Flint. The limited, black-and-white color palette create a stark, dynamic contrast, making a bold statement in your entryway. The bold color palette and size will draw in your guests from afar, while the layered textures and hopeful imagery of a wishing dandelion will keep them captivated at the entrance of your home.
Leave the muddy shoes and messy jackets for the mudroom – the foyer is meant for peaceful simplicity. We love a more minimal approach to your foyer design, so you can keep the entryway to your home a space for peace and tranquility as you enter and leave each day. A more minimalist foyer like this one offers an opportunity for your artwork to add interest and depth to your space without overwhelming. In this foyer, the texture, color, and unqiue subject matter of this piece “Justus” by KOLLABS adds greater warmth, interest, and depth to the space without detracting from the feeling minimalist peace. Plus, the strength and power of this Kudu antelope can communicate something about you family. Which KOLLABS animal imagery best captures your family?
The foyer to your house is an opportunity to say something meaningful about you, your family, and your home. A bold painting that captures the spirit of your family, like this, fun, whimsical, yet highly sophisticated piece by Hunt Slonem could make for the perfect introduction to your home.
If you have the space, sculptural artwork in your foyer is another way to create a stunning, visual statement. This unique sculpture by Siri Hollander aligns with the animal motif in the foyer and keeps in tone with the whimsical and sophisticated nature of the Hunt Slonem work, but it also adds an element of subtle grandeur and a feeling of freedom. What do you want your guests to feel when they first enter your home? Find that feeling with Gallery MAR art.
For a more low-key entryway, we recommend more minimal work with an understated beauty like this large-scale mixed media piece, “Love Notes From the Road” by Maura Allen. We love how the golden hues adds a little pop of color while staying aligned with the more limited color palette of the space. Plus the subtle Western theme makes for a beautiful nod to your family’s love of the Mountain West.
The entryway to your house can set the tone for your home, and the work in that space will be the first and last thing your guests see when entering and leaving your home. For our fun-loving collectors, the work of Sara Edgar sets a fun, yet uplifting tone to your home. Between her work’s whimsical imagery, bright and cheery color palette, and uplifting messages, you can welcome your guess with a message of hope and humor.
