The Christmas Foyer is no more…well just for now 😉
The 12 foot tree is down and put away for the time being. As much as I love the white twinkling tree, it is nice to have a change and give the space a refreshing look.
Foyer 2023 Ideas
As ready as I am for Spring, the weather tells me otherwise. We are still waiting for our first snow. Have you had any yet?
When I look at this space, I see a lot of empty walls. Been thinking about that and we’re looking into adding picture molding to the area. Been talking about this for a while and finally ready to get started! Stay tuned for more details.
In the meantime, thought I would give you a little tour of our foyer space in the evening. I love to turn all the lamps on and enjoy the soft lighting.
To give the space a feeling of Winter, I use stems from the Christmas trees and place them in a vase, centered on our foyer table.
Winter magnolias, frosty pinecone branches and anemone create a cozy Winter scene in our home.
One change I made to the space, was to move the round foyer table closer to the center of the area. Normally, it is placed against the wall, but centering it creates a visual symmetry that I love. Take a look…
Moving furniture around is always a great option, and often times offers new ideas and opportunities for creating additional space in a room.
I Painted our Foyer Table!
Do you remember this table that I sanded down last year?
I left the top natural and painted the drawers and legs black using milk paint. The look was ok for a while but not what I was looking for long term. Fun to play around with different looks for a space and sometimes it’s important to let a piece sit and determine if you really love the look.
When I decided to repaint this piece, I tried to paint it navy. Didn’t work out, sadly. The paint color was too blue and not enough of the dark navy as I was expecting, so black it is!
My friends are Benjamin Moore created a custom black for me and I love it. I added fun little key knobs with tassels and the look is just as I wanted!
You can see more of the before and after, check out my video HERE if you are interested.
I’m trying to decide if I want to add gold accents to the table, similar to the cabinet I painted blue and gold. What do you think?
I’m so happy you joined me here today and appreciate your ideas and comments!
