Let’s Get This Foyer Started

Here is a photo of our foyer. It’s small but it’s the first time I’ve ever had one, all the (many) other houses I’ve lived in never had one, you walked into the house and BAM you were in the living room.

I’ve started playing around with the foyer yesterday and came up with an initial sketch (very rough draft).

The next step is to draw it to scale and start working on my wants for the foyer which include the following: Lamp, table, rug, new lighting, umbrella stand, accessories and possibly some wallpaper.

The problems in the room include: The light on the ceiling is not currently centered with the front door window and the doors are different colors and is bugging me.

I found my table today, well a hutch that fits perfectly in the space. I snagged it for 19.99 at a local thrift store. Now I just have to figure out what color to paint it and perhaps a trip to Anthropologie for some new knobs.

Happy Friday!!
