My foyer needs some oomph.

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

My front foyer is a bit ho hum. Nothing glamorous just a standard Ikea mirror paired with a Home Depot plant. It is crying for a change (practically sobbing). It needs some oomph. I have so many ideas but feel so limited as I only have a whopping 3 feet of space to work with. I want to add a chair, the perfect console table and of course fabulous all inspiring artwork. It also wouldn't hurt if I had a Birkin bag casually sitting on the table and Prada shoes lying so elegantly on the floor. (ya, over the top fantasy now).
My boring little entry way. Help. Image via me.

But if I had oodles of space and budget, what could my front hallway look like? What happy moods could my foyer put me in as I walked in through the front door? The options are endless. Let's day dream below shall we?

You had me at the herring bone floor. Milk glass & round hurts right? Sigh.Image via Decorati.

A New York park Avenue foyer. Scale, scale and scale. I could probably do without the bust, but the pictures are fabulous. For my sis J, who thinks things this big can't work in a hallway. Image via Decorati

A sofa in your hallway, why not? Gramps and the kiddies would love it (much easier to keep your balance when dealing with the whole shoe/sock debacle). Image via Decorati.

Or maybe I should just mimic what Michael Kors has done in his front hallway? I think I just shed a tear. Image via Decorati.

All lovely pics, esp the one with the huge artwork! Hey, since you are short on floor space, but have that expanse of wall...I say go for some wall drama. Maybe a square of red as a backdrop for the black framed mirror....since you have little red zingy spots in your home anyway, maybe even use the ceiling and suspend something from it...a cool mobile, or bamboo windchime - or two - painted whatever color....just thinking out loud!

You could try some statement wallpaper as well...and mirrors always maximize a small space, so you're on track there....

I really really loved the first image with the ladderback chair (not really my style) , but something about the space made my heart skip a beat as well!!

I think a statement chair would look great in your hallway - something that says wow - like the ladder back chair.

All such beautiful images, I may have to save some of these for inspiration! And I am with you on the Birkin bag, and the herringbone floors, oh my heart hurts...
