Townhouse Foyer

I have been making steady progress here in the new house. It's slow going, very slow going, but steady. First thing I really tackled was the foyer. It's not big, or very well laid out. The only things we really have left to unpack is the decor items. So, I decided to take on the first space you see when you walk in the door. Bear with me, this area is like a cave.


Here is the after.






I was really excited to put up the "HELLO". I loved how you could see it when you walked in the front door at the old house. I would like to put up the gallery wall next to the hello, going up the stairs. I would also like to add a rug and fill in some of the white space with a few more frames. I have a dresser next to the door right now that has all of my office supplies. I don't really like it there, so I would like to change that out for something different. Not sure yet. I might like it more if I would actually paint it. Or even finish priming it. I would also like to stain the small dresser. Not sure what color for that either... I'm just really glad to at least have one space that feels like us!

  2. It's adorable, love that Hello sign! You are lucky to even have a foyer, my front door opens right up into my living room and I hate that!

    1. Thanks! :) And I agree! Our old apartment opened right into the living room and dining room. totally hated it! This still opens up into the living room, but it has this nice little space :)

  8. how fun! I love the eclectic look to this, and that fun hello sign. maybe to the left of the door you could use a half moon table, or just something less heavy. only thing, you wouldn't get all that storage, tho.

    1. Thanks :) I totally agree on something less heavy there. We have a pretty decent sized closet that I think I can fit the bigger dresser in to. I just have to organize it :/
