OH YES, I DID!!! I recently replaced the traditional oriental rug in the foyer with a fun, modern, sassy, loud, black and white striped rug. I’ve said this before, but I think foyers are one of the hardest rooms in one’s home to decorate. My foyer certainly is a testament to that thought as it has been “evolving” for a couple of years! Some may think this rug is a bit too wild… but for me, it’s just the thing this room needs!
StoneGable is a MODERN American farmhouse. I adore, love and swoon over the more authentic types. But, my farmhouse is updated and more modern with “touches” of real farmhouse charm. My look is Farmhouse…with a twist! A little classic, a little cottage, a little industrial and a big dose of ME!
Here is how the old rug looked in the foyer…
There was absolutely nothing wrong with the old rug. It had been in my living room and then in the foyer and now it will go in a bedroom upstairs. But I really needed little fresher look in the foyer. When I found this rug on Amazon for 77% off, I knew it was time to “go for it”! And boy I’m happy I did!
Here’s a very important thing to know about decor and life itself… EVERYTHING HAS A LIFECYCLE! Things change and get tired and worn out. That does not mean that they are not valuable anymore, but everything changes and so should we!
Although my previous rug is still in good condition, it’s lifecycle in the foyer was ending. It will have a new fresh life upstairs!
My new little rug works well with all the other neutral and black elements in the foyer!
There are still a couple of other changes for the foyer…
The little settee is going upstairs (did you notice I had it slipcovered?) and is being replaced by a really cool bench! I’m still so ambivalent about the foyer chandy (if you can call it that). I think I’m going to paint the original brass one I had and reinstall it. Oh, I don’t want to forget the little botanicals… they are going too! I’m not quite sure what I’ll replace them with but I’m looking!
This fun rug (Amazon.com) added a whole lot of sassy personality to the room guest first come in to when I open my front door!
