New Paint Means New Chandie!

Happy Monday, friends!

Not too long ago, I shared how I painted the inside of our front door black.  Such a quick, inexpensive project that really made a difference (love those kinds of projects, don't you)?  


Of course, that "freebie" project then led to a "not so free" project (oops).  Our foyer chandie, which was brown metal with stained glass in shades of purples, greens and reds just didn't work anymore (sorry I don't have a before pic) ... actually, it hadn't worked for some time, but it was one of those projects we simply put off ... for 6 years!

Thanks to Home Depot, our foyer got a new chandie ... the price was right, too, which made it even "more" appealing!  Love its simplistic style:


While playing around in this small space, I then decided to wash a bit of grey onto the white urns:


I wanted them to tie in with the new panels in both the sitting and dining rooms: 


I then brought back our larger rug that has the mustard/gold yellows (like our new fabric), with flecks of black here and there:


Of course, I'm a big fan of dressing doors with simple tassels, too!


I love how the new chandie ties in with our front door!  Annnd, while you're here, you can also see how I used the same fabric in our sitting and dining rooms, which makes my little symmetrical self a happy girl. 


I hope you all have a happy week.  I'm off to continue making a few changes in our great room ... starting with the addition of this beautiful seagrass rug ... LOVE!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

  12. Love the new chandy!! I also like your idea of hanging a tassle from the knob. I'm going to have to do that too. :) Your whole entry looks beautiful. Love your blog!

  13. i love your new light becca...a few years ago i replaced our old foyer light with a gorgeous lantern, i never get tired of looking at it.

    yep, all decorating has a domino effect...why can't we just get by with one little change and call it done?! of course, with most of us, nothing is ever "done"!

    hope you had a fabulous mother's day!

  14. Love the new light fixture, Becca! I had a fixture just like that, too. I had intended it for the second floor landing {hanging over the stairs} in our old house and then we moved. I tried to use it in our dining area here, but it wasn't working out. Someone got a great light fixture at Goodwill! Love that rug, too!

  22. I love the new chandy. I love the look of the black door. I have been thinking about doing that in our foyer but I am worried it would be to dark in there.
    Love your foyer.
    Have a happy day.

  27. STUNNING!!! Painting your door black made everything else pop too! Maybe I should consider painting mine too!

  28. Very, very pretty, Becca! I love your new chandy and the gray wash that you gave the urns. And the rug fits in perfectly!

  29. Becca, your entrance looks amazing! Love all the changes and the chandy is just perfect! I also love the fabric you used for your panels. Very, very pretty!

  30. Your new chandelier looks great! I'd love to update ours (to get rid of the brass) but we would have to hire someone to hang it since we have a two story foyer and a huge staircase surrounding it. I like symetry too. It just makes rooms feel "right", doesn't it?

  31. You have such a beautiful home! xx

  32. That looks so pretty Becca! Love the new chande too.

  36. White and black have this distinct appeal that will make you fall in love, over and over again. Both looks good, honestly, but painting it with black, made a huge difference in the entire aesthetic appeal.
