How was your Easter weekend? Mine was good except the weather could've been better. It was a little chilly and rained most of the time. But, I still enjoyed time with my family and woke up to a beautiful Monday morning. It is sunny and very nice out today. It's amazing what that can do for my mood!
I wanted to share some changes that I made to my foyer since I last shared it with you. I've been enjoying bringing in some modern textiles to my home lately. I'm liking the mix of modern with European and farmhouse styles. I think it keeps it feeling fresh and interesting.
This is the view that you see when you come into my house.
Here are some of the modern textiles I've added to the foyer.
The black and white rug and pillows make a bold statement but also blend well with the rest of the house. The rug is from H&M (a favorite of mine for good quality and low prices) and the black and white pillow is from Tuesday morning. The white fur pillows are from Target.
Even though it's Spring, I still like the fur pillows. I like the texture they add.
The painted chest of drawers stands out against the white walls. I added an urn (that I painted white) and my maiden hair fern to it. My Santos doll was moved down from my bedroom and into this space to add some European flair.
I looked up how to care for a maiden hair fern so I wouldn't kill it. They say to mist it daily and give it plenty of indirect sunlight. Also, not to move it very often. It's referred to as a "diva" of plants. Hmmmmm........there can only be one diva in this house. But, I will try to pamper it nonetheless. I don't want it to die on me!
Here is the view looking into the foyer from my family room.
We have a 2-story foyer (which is good and bad). I like how spacious it feels when you enter, but have you ever tried dusting the chandelier in one of those? Very difficult. I won't bother showing you all the little cob webs that really need to be cleaned out either. We will have to hire someone to repaint the ceiling in there too. That's on our "to do" list one day.
Hope you all have a great Monday.
Thanks for stopping by.
