Ask Steven and Chris: Awkward Foyer
Hi Steven and Chris,
My home has a beautiful entrance with two odd landings. I'm not sure what to do with them and would love some advice or hints to get me started.
Steven and Chris say:
- These awkward foyer nooks are very common in new builds.
- First, we think if you were to change your existing light for something with a much larger scale that it will distract from the nooks. We like something like this one for your space.

- Moving over to the nooks, we would like to see you downplay them. If nothing else, removing the trim and painting all of the white out with the same color of the wall will do wonders in disguising the nooks.
- We would like to see you go one step further, however, and place some objects of a large scale and neutral color to fill the space. We are thinking along the lines of some oversized old trunks or some large terra cotta urns, both grouped together.
