my house :: the foyer

3.01.2014

This room is kind of like the playroom… it took me awhile to get it to a point where it felt right. For awhile it was so blah and brown. Here are the different phases it's been through since May 2011.

Before we started the renovation:


During Renovation (closed up the cased opening to the dining on the left--- that room became part of the kitchen):


Right after we finished the renovation:


 And now:
 


  


My two favorite additions are the Stray Dog Artichoke Lamp (I will admit that I bought two of these for our booth in Jackson but one of them landed here):

And two watercolor paintings by Erin McIntosh from Gregg Irby Gallery:

Beautiful Brooke! I really love your floors and the color of the back of your front door. The artichoke lamp is killer too!

Beautiful entryway! I'm especially drawn to your new mirror! Might I ask where you found it??

Love the way you transformed this entry and the playroom. It's hard to believe it's the same space. The wood floors make this room look like it's always been this way and I love the way you accessorize. That lamp is perfect! Thanks Brooke!!

Your entry is beautiful! I love your herringbone wood floors. May I ask where you found your console table? It looks like the perfect width. Thanks for sharing!

Just lovely, Brooke. So welcoming and chic. I'd love to know where the hanging lantern is from, if you don't mind sharing!

Love how you created a wall for your entry way. Everyone always wants to take down walls! I think it's just as important to put them up when you need to create a focal point. As for the artichoke lamp - totally fab! M.
