Adding a Little Spring to the Foyer ~ Foyer Vignette



As you know I have been looking to change up things in our entry foyer, so in addition to the new paint colors I also switched out the furniture. This is what it looked like right after Christmas.


Not bad but I wanted a larger piece of furniture against the wall and I have been chomping at the bit for a lamp in the entry. So I brought the buffet I had in the kitchen out to the foyer to replace the cedar chest. 


Then yesterday I purchased a new mirror at the Christmas Tree Shop for only $50! I really like the contrast of the dark frame against the neutral wall and it seems to give the entire vignette a new energy! (Not forgetting to mention that one of my many weak spots is that I am a sucker for mirrors which parody windows.) Another reason why the black frame works for me is because it ties together the black of both the stairway carpeting and entry's runner. 

Now using your imagination, add a wrought iron and wood banister to the steps. Nice right? Just waiting on Mr. RL to get moving on that project! (Love you honey!)


 I also stopped by Michael's craft store the other day and picked up some new spring flowers to place in my giant pitcher. I like to switch out the bouquet for each season.


A collection of books along with a little thrift store picture replaced the plates on the small shelf above the mirror, helps to balance out the weight of the buffet and strong mirror frame.



A few baskets fill in the space under the buffet.



Yippee almost there!!! 

I have to admit that I am really thrilled with the foyer's new look and feel. I am thinking about adding a sconce to the wall at the stairway's landing, and possibly more family or vacation pics going up the stairs. But that may just have to wait until I get my new banister so I have a better idea of what to choose with regard to the style of the sconce and picture frames. 

Here's hoping spring is a lot closer to getting here than how it looks outside right now. 


And wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

  16. I love how you styled your foyer. I can just picture that pretty stair railing too. We have plans to repaint our stair railing as well. Are we ever really finished? I love your flower arrangement in the pitcher too. It looks so romantic.

  17. Barbara, very pretty spring look for your foyer! I especially like the buffet, is that an old or new piece? For that matter, I like the white cabinet in the last pic (anything with a barley twist detail always catches my eye). Thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind comment! I hope you have a great week. Melissa

  22. Thanks for the kind comment on my pine dresser makeover. I usually don't mind winter too much but this year it seems to drag on and we are expecting 10cm more today plus freezing rain and ice pellet mix. Yuck.
