This neutral foyer is one of the first spots you see when walking into this client’s home.
Right before Christmas, I was able to redo a foyer area for a friend and client. Lisa was never happy with her foyer space and it bothered her because she always felt like something was off. When I looked at the space, the main thing I noticed was that the current piece of furniture wasn’t the right size for the space. Her home is beautiful and actually has a double foyer so this nice space under the stairs is what you see before heading towards her living room, dining room and kitchen.
This European accent table is lovely so we actually ended up moving it towards the front entrance which fit that area so much better. Here’s the BEFORE.
First things first, I recommended buying a new console table. Lisa was struggling with keeping pieces that she had received from her parents but didn’t really love. I recommended that if she wasn’t in love with it, she shouldn’t keep it because it was her home. Trust me, I’ve struggled with this too because I have had some old pieces of furniture that were given to us from our parents. They were perfect at filling our house in the beginning but then I wanted to edit and pare the things I had that really worked to tailor to my taste. I also got tired of looking at things that just didn’t fit our family practically.
Last year, I either sold or donated furniture that I held onto but just didn’t love anymore. It was so freeing! Antiques are one thing but if these pieces of furniture aren’t your style, you are doing it more justice handing it or selling it to someone else who will love and showcase that piece happily.
I went with the Everett Foyer table because the size fit perfectly and the quality and price can not be beat. It’s still currently on sale but will be back to regular price soon. Snatch it while you can because this price is the lowest it will ever be.
Here’s what I came up with!
It’s pretty simple and I placed some baskets on the bottom to hold things that Lisa needs to store. Plus, it does a good job hiding the outlets against the wall.
I installed mirrored frames above the table so that Lisa could display photos of her precious children.
The foyer looks so much bigger now right? The right size furniture can add so much drama to a space.
Here’s a last look at the Before and After.
I’m so glad she’s happy with the new space! I love that it still looks simple and effortlessly styled.
