Welcome to Our Foyer!

Greetings, friends !!

Thank you all so very much for your thoughtful comments about our recent feature in "Decorating Shortcuts" magazine ... it meant so much! 

We're still settling into our new home, and, as it's only fitting to start from the beginning, I'm inviting you all into our foyer!

BEFORE: Here's our foyer as shown by the builder, Hour Homes, on their website after it was completed: 

AFTER: TA DAAA!  I have much more planned for this space, but, here's how it looks today:

I was happy to be able to add our Annie Sloane "Chateaux Grey" accent chest in here, which I then flanked with two parsons chairs (that used to live on the enclosed porch in our old home).  I plan on adding different slipcovers, as well as adding "blingy" candle sconces, above the chairs eventually.

Of course I had to splash coastal accents in, especially since we're not right down the road from the beach anymore ((**sniff sniff**)):

This little fella (or is it a gal) from Home Goods has been overseeing my madness!

Our vintage secretary seems to fit perfectly in the little niche towards the back of the foyer:

Unlike in our old home, I decided to give it a "crown" of inexpensive decorative plates that I look forward to changing out with the upcoming seasons!

Even though a 2 story foyer can pose a bit of decorating challenge (for me, anyway) as far as the "empty" space above, I love the natural light that pours in:

I'll be back soon to share more of our new casa ... hope you'll join me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
