If there is any space that doesn't sing quiet luxury, it is  Drake's entryway. The Canadian rapper's interior designer, Ferris Rafauli, shared a photo of Drake's entryway, and it's giving maximalist Parisian chic. We think the timeless look will be a huge interior design trend in 2024 and beyond.

Drake's French-inspired foyer rejects 2023's 'stealth wealth' motto for a bolder look. The floors are loudly luxurious black and white marble arranged in a complicated pattern. The white walls are paneled in a traditional Parisian fashion, while modern pendant lights hang from the high ceilings. Against the walls, a tan leather chaise with a Christian Lacroix Butterfly Parade Pillow atop adds a pop of color. With the materials and the mix of modern and antique furnishings, Drake's entryway perfectly captures the Parisian modern style.

Designers love the Hotline Bling rapper's choice for an entryway. They say the style will last forever, into 2024 and beyond, largely owing to the high-quality materials. Isabella Adler, a Texas-based interior designer states: 'Marble, which we see in Drake's entryway, is a luxurious and timeless material that gives the area a sense of eliteness and sophistication. Its reflective surface adds a spacious and airy feel to the entryway, mainly when combined with natural light.'

She continues, 'Paneled walls, crafted with intricate details, add elegance and architectural interest to the entryway. They can help find a more intimate and cozy atmosphere, letting guests feel welcomed and at ease. 

Isabella adds that the lighting choice in Drake's entryway idea further complements his inviting design. She states: 'Pendant lights are an excellent entryway choice as they offer functional and aesthetic benefits. They can help define the area and find a focal point while providing sufficient illumination for practical tasks, like finding keys or welcoming guests. I love how Drake's entryway uses elegant crystal pendant lights that complement the whole design style as well as more sleek, modern pendants for a contemporary look. This combination of modern and vintage styles is essential to the Parisian chic aesthetic.'

Elizabeth Grace, a New York City-based interior designer emphasizes the benefits of this style. She says, 'Parisian chic design is a timeless and captivating aesthetic
that celebrates elegance and artistic expression. It is known for its effortless sophistication.' She continues, 'Parisian chic design offers a classic and refined appeal that transcends trends. It's a style that never goes out of fashion.'

Elizabeth adds, 'As an entryway is your first impression of a home, this ever-stylish, bold, and loudly luxurious aesthetic is an excellent choice. It gives guests a sense of the sophistication and style yet to come in the rest of your home.'
