The Most Outstanding Celebrity Foyers
If there’s anyone who knows how to make a great first impression, it’s those who have experience on the red carpet. With that in mind, we’re looking to some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood and fashion for inspiration for jaw-droppingly chic foyers. From Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi’s grand yet playful Beverly Hills (which boasts a ping-pong table) entrance to Kate and Andy Spade’s memento-filled foyer, these entry ways are guaranteed to turn a light bulb on in your head.
You can count on Ralph Lauren to give us drop-dead-gorgeous American inspiration. The entrance hall of the fashion designer’s Bedford, New York residence has traditional elegance with a 19th-century Dutch chandelier, stained mahogany doors, a velvet armchair, and a storied collection of canes.
In the entrance hall of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi’s Beverly Hills home, a ping-pong table designed by Argentine artist Rirkrit Tiravanija adds an element of whimsy in a sea of seriously chic décor like a Spanish colonial bench, a Serge Mouille chandelier, and a 19th-century carpet.
The foyer of Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth’s former home in Brentwood, L.A. has a chic, understated country vibe with an antique wooden table, a glass lantern, and a bamboo mirror.
The entry hall in Brooke Shields’ New York townhouse has all the staples of a traditional home: blue-and-white delftware, an antique Chinese desk, a great gold mirror, and an original piece of art. But it’s her beautiful staircase and banister that really catches our eye.
Musician and interior designer Lenny Kravitz is known for his glam-rock style, and the foyer of his Paris home is no exception. The expansive black-and-white space features gilded frames, plush modern chairs, a sexy figurative lamp, and glamorous details like white chandeliers.
