Foyer Complete

Here it is! I am even pleased to say it only cost  $10.  $7 for a can of oops paint in "Timothy Straw" at Benjamin Moore, and $3 for the painters tape.  I also moved the Flor area rug from the kitchen to the entry, which I really think completes the look.

Design Inspiration

Inspirational photo + the pattern in my drapes

Foyer in progress.......The tape is up and the painting begins!!! I knew I wanted to do something in the foyer to brighten things up, and I loved the idea of a wallpapered accent wall. However, budget and the fact that I don't own the place really wasn't letting me do that. I've got a good amount of pattern running throughout, so I needed to be careful not to overdo it. As I was browsing the Schumacher website for a client, I came upon a Trina Turk design that I loved, and realized its very similar to the patterns I've got in my drapery and area rug. I tweaked the pattern design a bit and came up the with the one above..

Stay tuned for the final reveal tomorrow and then its on to the next project, my home office/kitchen area, which is in dire need of more storage space and a more cohesive feel.
