{Entrance Hall} Function

Are you guys still with me on this Fabulous Foyer series?! The room has already taken on a new life, with the rug (then another rug!), life and lighting. Now it's time to build in some function.

A foyer can be well-decorated, but if there's no where to drop your keys and sunglasses, then it's a wasted opportunity for adding function to the room. Since I'd already bought the rugs and pendant, I decided to shop my house for something to serve as the landing zone. There is only one wall, and the door opens on that side, so I'm limited to something small and narrow.

This little stool has lived in every spot of our house, so I tried it out first, along with a large vase. But it doesn't really provide much function, and it's too small for the spot.

My great-grandfather's old camel saddle is one of the coolest things we own, so it got a turn in the foyer next.

While I think it looks fun here, and I love the warm wood tones, it doesn't provide any function. Unless you're headed out for a camel ride. Even then, I'd probably go with something more comfortable on your tushy.

Finally I tried a little antique table my mom gave me during her recent move (don't you love when parents downsize!?).

It adds the wood tones I like, and has a flat surface to provide a small drop zone.

Plus the narrow profile allows the door to open completely. SOLD!

I wish it were a tad taller, but I'm not about to argue with free! The final step is my favorite....adding style, color and personality. How do you feel about the makeover so far?!

  1. I never think to layer rugs, love that kind of deco thinking!
    My concern is being able to keep the rug perfectly straight and worried that guests will trip on it (most people won't be thinking it's a double rug)
    I would have found one rug with that punch you wanted.
    Anxious to see it all finished!

    1. Because of the texture of the jute rug, the persian stays put with no wiggling around or flipping up! So far, so good! xo

  7. Your bedroom is gorgeous and the headboard is truly stunning. The cabinet that holds the linens is so pretty too.

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
