We usually share bits and pieces of our homes here on the blog, but we’re going to try and do more full room tours as we get rooms “finished up” (are rooms ever finished?) First up for me… My foyer. Now, I should explain that no one ever comes in our front door. It’s kind of sad since the front door is so cute now. (Take a peek at the door here.)
I think you’ve seen this part of the foyer before. Chair. Accent Table. Gallery Wall. Wallpaper.
I love this little vignette. The chair was thrifted, the table is IKEA, the bird is from Michael’s and spray painted yellow, the red frame has the chair material in it, and the lamp’s from Homegoods and is actually broken as of 3pm today. (Ugh) The chair needs a mini black pillow with a & symbol on it… Hopefully coming soon!
My Big Foot Rug!
If you follow us on Facebook (which I definitely think you should) you got a little sneak peek of this rug. It’s from Overstock.com and you can see it here. Now, I know the size is a wee bit weird, but honestly the space is weird. Square and Circle rugs are muy muy expensive! (Didn’t know I was bilingual did ya?) I saw this big foot and laughed right out loud. I knew it was meant to be.
Oh, and did you notice… the door is charcoal? The Ombre Door Disaster is fixed. Did you miss that catastrophe? You’ve gotta check it out here.
I need to buy a non-slip pad because it’s sliding all over the place!
Here’s the view from the living room into the foyer
Here’s the opposite view, from the stairs. The Moroccan-ish mirror is from Target.
I’m a dork, and was attempting to do a funny, Miss America wave, but you can’t get the full effect in a picture, so I went to a peace sign, but I’m not that kinda girl, BUT I am the mom of a 7yr old, so I know that Bunny Ears are one of the funniest things to do in a picture, or so Kade insists. Are you laughing yet? See, Bunny Ears… they work like a charm.
One of the cool things in our house is the foyer ceiling and light. It’s a double trey ceiling, which the builder loved, but to us just meant lots of wasted money on molding, although, truth be told, now I do love how it looks. (note to self: replace one bulb)
Now here’s my true motive for showing you the foyer from all angles… I need help. Shocker Right? I want to do something above the door. I see it from the kitchen, I see it every time I go upstairs, I see it all the time. So tell me, what you would do?
Don’t be swayed, but here’s what I’m kind of fixated on. I can’t even explain why, but when I look at the door it’s actually what I always envision.
I’m thinking of using my mini-projector and painting the word HELLO in really large, graphic letters. I have been trying to talk myself out of it, but I think I’m sold. If you have other ideas, please share em!
So that’s my foyer. A tad quirky, really dusty, and 99% finished. Let me know what you think and then help a girl out with your ideas!
