Green patterned walls, a graceful chandelier and framed artwork ensure this traditional foyer is anything but boring. A lovely beige settee offers sophisticated seating, and a classic wood staircase leads upstairs.
The subtle shifting in the square mirrors adds dimension and texture to what is typically a flat surface. The mirror has been hung on a green wall and positioned behind a wood table on which are two yellow lamps, a small silver bucket with pink orchids and a small green tray of knickknacks.

To make a room appear to be bigger than it is, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big space. And make a sunporch look bigger and more inviting by painting it green to reflect the color of nature. Another design trick: If you want to create the illusion of more space, paint the walls the same color as your drapery. It will give you a seamless and sophisticated look.
