Here’s a little peek at part of my foyer. Bobby is done painting the walls (Benjamin Moore Sonnet) and now we are working on having a small settee slipcovered and replacing the mirror above the buffet.
Even though we are still painting the trim I decided to bring a little spring into the foyer…
I brought the chair from the dining room over to the foyer, and added my NO SEW BURLAP POSY PILLOW.To see the tutorial, click HERE.
I added just a few very simple thing to the top of the painted buffet… shopping my house for each piece!
The lamp, urn with ivy and a beautiful-degas-note-card-turned-picture make a trio of differing heights and soft spring colors!
All these pieces were borrowed from my study!
On the other side of the buffet is a white urn filled with faux blooms (from a local shop), a little nest with pretty aqua eggs and a small stack of books.
The top book is about Degas and his ballet paintings and sculptures. I adore Degas. The Degas rooms at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York are AMAZING! I could spend all day there!
Degas was not only a prolific painter and a core member of the Impressionist, but he was a master sculptor.
My very favorite Degas sculpture is of a little 14 year old dancer. I am totally enthralled with this piece!
You can see a picture of her and read about this world renowned masterpiece HERE.
As soon as the settee is done I’ll share the other side of the foyer!
