Winter Foyer: Rustic & Glam

 “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:11‬ ‭

 Most of the time when you walk into someone’s home, the foyer is the first space you see…and it often sets the tone of the entire house!  Does it make a guest feel welcome or is it off-putting?  Since it is usually a place to form first impressions, I always like for it to be a cheery spot with an array of interesting objects that typically tell a story! It is also a good place to add seasonal touches.  As you enter our foyer today, you will notice that the vignette is a little rustic and a little glam…and it suits us perfectly!

 I changed the foyer by moving lamps from the master bedroom…this pair is a favorite!

I shopped my house and collected accessories for the vignette.  Since Butch plays the guitar so beautifully, this miniature version moved to the foyer!

Love the rustic feel that antlers give!

The red lacquer tray has a toile scene on the inside!  The bird plates are from a set of four that I bought at Pottery Barn and were first seen on Tablescape Tuesday here!

A few red roses added a little elegance!

Snapdragons add to the roses!

I always like to mix in a little leopard (box of playing cards)!

The Schonbek lamps are jewelry to a room with the colored crystals!


The mirror’s reflection makes the small space look larger!

    Yes, I had to click the title to find the comments, but here I am! Love the miniature guitar! I have guitar players in my house who would love it! The entire grouping looks very chic.

      Leslie Anne, I am so glad you could navigate as per my instructions! The mini guitar has been around for a lot of years and I continue to move it from place to place! Happy Wednesday!

      Thanks so much Kim! My foyer is very small, so it is easy to move a few things and give it a new look! Have a wonderful Wedneaday evening!

    Lovely foyer. You are right about it setting a tone for what comes next! I don’t have a foyer and everyone comes in through our kitchen. Our old farmhouse fromt yard is a hilly slope with no walk way. Maybe this is part of the reason I have been struggling with how my kitchen looks. Thanks for that new way of thinking. Linda

    • Pam Richardson says:

      Thanks Linda! We have an entrance into our kitchen and everyone uses it! I still love for people to come to my front door, but they feel comfortable coming to the kitchen…so what do you do? Just go with it, I guess! Have a beautiful weekend!

We love your comments!
