Monday Mood Board: Entryway/Foyer September 30, 2013 | I don’t make mood boards enough. And that’s a shame because the really make me happy. Going to try out this whole Mood Board Monday thing. You cool with that? OK. Anyway, foyers are on my mind. Mine is boooooring with a capital B. Another part of the house that was thrown together the minute we moved in and has not been touched since. Wah wah. What makes it worse is that I feel like the entryway to your home should be like a giant, warm and fuzzy hug just waiting to greet guests and make them feel good about walking into your house. Our neighbors (who had never been IN our house) came over unexpectedly the other day and I literally felt sad that I didn’t have a proper entry all set up to greet them. My console table has become a place to drop stuff off and when they came in it was home to mail, ten pacis, a sippy cup, and keys. This must end. I need to reel it in and create a styled vignette. I actually LIKE my console table, and while it is a hand-me-down, I painted it gold and I really still like the lines of it. I need a piece of art and more substantial lamps and some stylish tchotchkes. So as I work through this dilemma see some of my inspiration below. Will update you when I am done! Meanwhile….what does your entryway say about you? vogue.com Here’s my inspiration board. Light and modern but still very traditional overall. I feel like the colors, prints and textures are the open arms that you need, while the classic lines of the furniture are what grounds the vignette. What do you think…would you feel all warm and fuzzy walking into this room?
