The Foyer

RUG:: Nuloom // CHAIR:: Amazon (steal!) // WALLPAPER:: Schumacher // ART:: Etsy // OBJECTS:: Jonathan Adler , Antiques, Books // MIRROR:: World's Away // LIGHT:: similar here // FLORALS:: Cherry Blossoms ( ps they are fake!)

Since the foyer is the first thing you see when you walk into someone's home it should say a lot about them! I knew I wanted mine to have a pop of color and of course accented with gold. 

After deciding to wallpaper the ceiling in a sandy leopard by Schumacher, I immediately wanted a pink rug! I love pink and I love leopard. I will never get sick of either and I personally think they go very well together. I had seen a bunch of kilim rugs on various sites but fell in love with this one from NuLoom ( I also like this one). The dyed fuchsia with a little bit of purple felt perfect in this small space. Just enough color!

My mom gifted us with the gold and glass console, so naturally I thought painting the door gold would be really fun. I am all about color in small spaces and since my rug was pretty bright, I toned down the color of the door. For a while I was thinking of doing an actual color but then thought a metallic would tie in the sandy leopard and the bright pink really nicely - not to mention I have gold accents throughout the space! I also paired the ghost chair just on the one side of the console. Two felt cramped and i liked the idea of having something stack my work bag on or a duffle when leaving for a trip. It also just anchored the entire space and this one that I have in my foyer and my office was a total steal!

My best advice for decorating any shelf or console is get coffee table books and candles! A great stack of books with an antique and a candle is the perfect start to decorating a surface area. I got a few objects from Jonathan Adler as well. Decorative objects are pretty hard to find so just keep popping into shops or browsing online to find little pieces here and there. Trust me it takes time!


I love the mirror I chose to put on that wall. It's helpful to have a mirror whether above your foyer console or on another wall so you can get a quickie once over before heading out! I know there is a little peek of my etagere which I recently ( after this photo) redid. Like I've said in past home décor posts - I have a bad habit of redoing things! I will follow up with my etagere post but for now shop some foyer staples below!
