Foyer Ideas

I've been thinking a lot about foyers lately. Our new apartment doesn't technically have one, but it is laid out in a way that I think I can turn a small area into a foyer/entrance type thing. Ya know? :)

Here is the floor plans


It's not much space, and it might not be the best use of space. I'll know for sure once we see the place in person. This is  not the best shots of the area, but hey, it was just a quick tour of the place.




As you can tell, the door opens up and the first thing you'll see is a wall. Once you turn you will see the rest of the living room, the balcony and possibly part of the dining room. I want to make an area that represents us. I want it to be somewhere we can drop our bags, keys, whatever.




I'm not sure where I'm going, style wise, with the new house. I like the simple, yet put together look of this space. I think it could be something we could achieve with pieces we already have. I go back and forth, a lot, between minimalist and eclectic. Most days I like the look of many pieces out. But sometimes it becomes so overwhelming. ....... I like the idea of a chair in the corner. Maybe we could have a shoe storage system as well.

I'm also thinking about putting up a gallery wall on the wall dividing the kitchen from the living room. It will be similar to what we had, but completed :)


But taking up an entire wall with frames might not be the best use of space. I like the idea of a Carrie Bradshaw- esq library.


I bet that would be a lot of fun. Mostly because I have to go from foyer to office to living room. That wall might make a good transitional area. 

I've also been thinking about a bold color or even a creative stencil.


So many thoughts going through my head about our new house. We are moving in exactly one week and I'm slightly freaking out about it. I'm so excited about moving, but I think there is so much that still needs to be done. We have almost all of our lives packed up, there are boxes everywhere and I look around, and there is still so much left out. This week is going to be extremely stressful, followed by a very long drive. But in the end we will be in a new place, starting new jobs, and moving forward with our lives. I can't wait :)
