My sister and I have a lot of little things in common – we both have an embarrassing love of the Bachelor/Bachelorette, think that nothing beats McDonald’s Coke, and…. we’re both decorating slow-pokes. When we decide to decorate a room, it’s something that comes together over months (sometimes years) rather than days or weeks. Such was the case for my sister’s foyer – over two years ago I blogged about some beautiful options for chests for her foyer that she was starting to decorate. But it wasn’t until just a few months ago that she finished off the space – it was worth the time it took because she did such a fabulous job. It looks beautiful! (post includes some affiliate links)
A chest or console was her first step in decorating the space and out of the options I found for her, this is the one she ended up going with:
Isn’t it gorgeous?! (It is a Hooker piece that she bought from Horchow but unfortunately it’s no longer available on their site.)
Next came the mirror – we found it at a home store in Wilmington, N.C. when we were visiting my parents last year:
Her foyer went from being completely empty:
to looking like this (hello beautiful!):
If you have a good eye, you may have noticed that there is a patterned rug laying in front of her RH furniture piece. I am seriously coveting it – so, so beautiful and it’s in my much loved combination of gray/taupe and white (unfortunately this exact rug is no longer available):
Now that she’s got the major players in the room place, it’s on to an ottoman, art, drapes, and decorative accessories. I’ll be sure to share some “after” pics of her space once it’s all done because it’s sure to be a stunner!
Hope you have some great summer plans in place for the weekend – enjoy!
