Nothing makes a statement in the foyer like a glistening chandelier.  This is one place in the home, other than maybe the dining room, where you don’t want to skimp on lighting.  Go big and bold for maximum impact.

Two-story foyers are dramatic in themselves, but you can make the most of them by hanging large artwork and even creating two levels of design space, such as the foyer below.  Place a rug for color, softness and to dampen noise.
