The foyer is one of my favorite spots in our new house. The staircase and the original flooring and beadboard has so much charm.
The stained glass in the front door is so unique and I love that this is the first room to welcome guests when they visit us.
The wallpaper that was in there when we purchased the house had been installed by the previous owner. She chose it to bring out the colors in the door. I didn’t dislike the wallpaper pattern, but I didn’t feel like it was a little too busy and some of the historic details got lost in all of it.
I wanted to save some of the wallpaper since she chose it with such care and use it as some artwork in the foyer in a nod to Miss Patti and Mr Bob who had saved the house 10 years previous. I am so appreciative that they took on a massive project and brought this beautiful house back to life!
I chose the color Contented by Sherwin Williams. I feel like it brightens the space but also has enough color to bring out the woodwork and trim.
I have an antique schoolhouse light on its way to replace the light hanging there now and I am so excited! I love a good vintage light. 😉
I’m very happy with how this space turned out! It makes me smile every time I walk through it. Still can’t believe this is our home!
