Changes in the Foyer

Hello everyone!

With the purchase of some new pillow covers from H&M recently, I made a small change to the bench area of my foyer.



I used to have blue and white transferware on the walls and a blue and white grainsack pillow on the bench.  Now I have this.

This is my new pillow cover from H&M.


I love it and bought several to use in here and in my kitchen.



With the black and white colors in the pillow, I felt that the mirror should be flanked with that color as well.  I've had these monogram plates for a while now. I hung one with each family member's initials.



The plates also coordinate well with the pictures in the room. 




Hey!  My dog even matches this space now!  LOL!  See him?


Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kelly, I think you need to buy stock in H&M! You should adverstise for them on your blog. Love all the purchases and the way you tweaked your foyer. How cool to have a foyer large enough for a bench! Love your sweet little Boston Terrier!
