French interior designer Andre Putman once said that “For a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another, respond and balance one another”. This grand foyer exemplifies this notion by not only filling an otherwise empty space in the home’s entryway, but by complimenting everything around it and bringing a sense of completion to the space. Note how the blue ties in with the gorgeous chairs and tapestry, all the way up to the dome’s stained glass. Additionally, consider how the floral pattern in the rug resonates with the pattern between the spirals of the banister. Everything flows together perfectly.
