Hi friends! Happy Thursday. So far, I’ve shared with you our empty apartment tour, the progress we’ve made in the dining room, and the plans for my office in our new apartment. Well, I’m happy to report that the foyer area (I say area because it’s really just a wall by the door that I call the foyer) is coming along quite nicely!
I love the bright pop of color that greets you as soon as you enter the apartment. The console table (from Home Decorators Collection) serves as a perfect spot to store my coral benches (from Target) just in case we need extra seating.
I painted the art, using an old canvas that I no longer liked. I was super inspired by
a piece of art that I found on Pinterest, but I couldn’t find a link to it or a source. If anyone knows what painting I’m talking about, please leave a comment! a painting called “Keen As” by Prudence Caroline. I just loved the colors and knew that they’d go perfectly with the stools. I’m very happy about how it came out!
These are what’s left over from the baby shower flowers 🙂
I was having a lighting dilemma in this space, so Lamps Plus graciously let me choose a lamp from their massive collection. It was a difficult choice, but I finally decided on the Lotus Leaf Lamp, and I’m obsessed with it! I love the pop of black against the bright blues of the painting. It really grounds the space, while adding a little bit of glam.
(pardon the chord. I need to find a way to secure it to the table so it’s hidden!)
I like to keep a tray for a scented candle, my jewelry (that I inevitable take off as soon as I enter the house), and my keys. It helps corral all of the little things, and keeps my cats from playing hockey with my earrings on the floor.
The table is just the right length and depth for this wall. We needed something a little more narrow than our old table, since the door swings inwards into the apartment. And the length takes up just the perfect amount of space on that wall!
Here’s a more zoomed out view. I’m thinking of painting the door black, and maybe adding some sort of renter-friendly trim. Thoughts?
So, what do you think? Too much color, or just enough? Should I paint the door black?
You guys are the best.
