Simple Foyer Tricks

Today’s ditto  post features a classy and classic foyer that is gorgeous, but certainly not fussy. It is farmhouse simple, but not without glam! My favorite combo of course! The simplicity did not happen easily, though. Some great decorating tricks were used. Let’s ditto it, and find out how we can use these simple foyer tricks in our own homes.

{Ditto posts demonstrate a great exercise for you as you continue to develop your own personal style: using your own favorite pictures, and making a quick list of what you actually love about the space. If you study what you love about a space, it helps you to bring what you LOVE into your own home! }

WHAT I LOVE {What I would ditto!}:

1. The natural rugs. Natural fibers hide dirt…. while looking FABULOUS. They are also easy to shake out and clean, plus the price is right. Plus, I love that there are two of them here…. the first one takes the brunt of the dirt and may have to be replaced more often, but it saves the life of the second one. These rugs are the perfect ditto for a foyer!

2. The grouping of fowl art, framed in bamboo. Yes. Amazing. And I love how they are basically black prints, giving a bold feel to the art. Don’t miss the long, horizontal cranes that are hung LOW. Love it.

3. The jingle bells on the back of the door. Real ones.

4. The antique, mirror-backed, double sconces amidst the art is very ditto-worthy! I love their presence in this foyer. I am sure these light fixtures were pricey, but their presence in this space MAKE the room. Sometimes, the value of pieces like these cannot be overestimated.

5. A place to sit and a place to put down your bag {the console}. Both of these are essential elements in a good and lovely foyer.

6. Pale, pale wood paneling {greyed oak?} on the walls. Such a unique and subtle wall treatment that adds texture, but stays completely neutral.

7. A crisp white door. With light pouring in around the sides.

8. That cool, Chinese lantern looking thing. Basically, add a touch of creative, sculptural art by using something out of the ordinary, and placing it in an unexpected place. The simple black and white pattern helps it ease into the room.

9. That bench! Paint a beautiful bench black. Then toss floral pillows of loveliness on top.
