French Styling in the Foyer

Hello everyone!

You may recall, in my last post, that I moved a chair out of my foyer and into my family room.  Well, that created the need  to fill that spot and a few other changes as well.  Things just hop all around at my house.  They don't stay in one place too long.  

The chair got replaced with a basket of faux lavender.  


On the chest, I placed a wicker style bowl and filled it with a vintage grain sack.


I added some pictures around it.


  One is this new little french style plaque that I picked up the other day.  It has bulls on it.


I like the colors of it because it picks up the color of the chest.


So there you have it!  A little bit of French styling in my foyer.


At least for today!  

Thanks for stopping by.

It looks great, Kelly! And I love that lavender! I'm always changing things up too. I was just staring at a plate rack in my kitchen wondering what I could replace it with. Lol! I'm thinking one of the chalkboard prints from dear lillie. :)

That looks great Kelly- I love seeing things layered. The pictures look great set there and the colors are perfect. The lavender in the basket looks great against the gray tone.

I really like that, Kelly. That cabinet is a really great piece and, of course, I LOVE lavender. What a wonderful thing to see when you enter your home- xo Diana

Wow - my heart skipped a beat when you said you are thinking about staining the cabinets. I was a bit sad when you said you wanted to paint them, but figured it's your house and was happy to play along with the color game. I hope staining works out - they are gorgeous.
