Foyer Update Is Complete!

Foyer is finished! When I posted the Foyer plans back in March, I shared entirely different wallpaper. I’ll take you through how things got switched up. Here’s where the foyer started:

So, initially, I planned on using this wallpaper:

It’s a stunning William Morris “artichoke” print from Decorator’s Best. But once it arrived, I realized I didn’t love it next to the dining room paper as much as I thought I would. Not to worry- I found another spot for this paper that I’ll share soon:) So the search continued, and when I came across the rich brown Schumacher sueded leather paper, I fell in love. It feels so soft to touch! Like having fabric on your walls! It’s super dreamy, and I loved the textured look while still reading as a solid color on the walls. It’s a brilliant color next to all surrounding rooms!

Next big change are the DOORS! I’ve dreamt of French doors since we moved in, and I’m so happy it looks just as beautiful as I’d hoped! Honestly, friends, upgrading your doors makes such a huge difference. We found these doors and painted them SW Tricorn Black (same color as our fireplace and the lower cabinets in the kitchen). Icing on the cake was using these square rosette Bristol knobs from Emtek. They’re beautiful!

Next up, let’s talk new furniture and lighting from Arhaus! I’ve been eyeing the Ubud console for some time now, and was just looking for the best spot for it in our home. It’s stunning- super heavy and made from sustainably sourced reclaimed teak wood.

I absolutely love the Jaxtyn easel lamp! Such a cool way to display art! I’ve played around with different ways to style it. All of the art you see in the previous photos are vintage from different thrift trips, including one from our recent trip to Italy- with the exception of the one on the floor, I found from Home Goods.

I will say, I’m still playing around with styling, and I’m being very slow and intentional about whether or not I hang art back up on the walls. I truly did love the gallery wall in that hallway, but this paper is so special, I hate to fill it with holes! We’ll see! In the meantime, all that’s left for final tweaking is installing one more Emtek knob to the hallway closet, and using black caulk around the panes on the doors!

What do you think? Do you like a dark, moody vibe? I find it enchanting! Feels really cozy in here. And although I’ve introduced some darkness, the French doors really allow light to pour in to the spaces in either direction. No regrets!
