I have always found it hard to decorate my foyer. It’s wide and ample and open. The living room and dining room flank it and flow into it and so does the main stairs. I’ve tried several pieces of furniture in here but they were not quite right! Decorating it in a way that works with the front of my house eludes me! But maybe things are turning around!!! A new buffet has come to live in my contrary foyer. And like Goldilocks, some of the furniture I have put in the foyer have been too small or too big… but I think this is just right!
The buffet came from Wayfair. It’s wonderfully made and I got it at a really great price! I like it because it’s a little taller than what I’ve had against the wall before. I also like that it is wider and fills the wall under the stairs in better.
I kept the Ballard Design mirror and turned it horizontally so it would fit. You know how I love a little black with my neutrals!
The buffet has a barnwood finish and paneled doors which gives it that farmhouse appeal that I love. But it is beautifully finished and the creamy color makes it feel a little more refined. My perfect combination!
The upholstered chair that I had in the foyer was not working with this buffet, so I put it in a guest room that needed a chair. I paired this buffet with a black chair and added a fun no-sew burlap pillow. You can see a step-by-step tutorial for it HERE.
I got the wire tray from Magnolia. If you watch Fixer Upper you might recognize the name. I got this from Joanna and Chip Gaines web site.
I have such an obsession with trays and baskets and their ability to group things!
Aren’t these little spindle and tin candlestick cute? I got them at a local outdoor vintage fair. I’m going to try to reproduce these for a post. I have a few fun ideas for recreating them.
What issues do you need to conquer in your foyer? I’ll try to address them in an upcoming post!
