OUR FOYER REVEAL

Get ready for the first room reveal in our new house! My goal is to post one room reveal every 2-3 months until the end of our lease just under two years from now. I’m starting small with our foyer but I’m hoping to have our living room ready to photograph next. Honestly I wish I could post home projects more often but decorating is such a process for me and it’s also way more expensive than shooting a new outfit for the blog. So hopefully every 2-3 months is a doable balance for me and you guys will still enjoy some more regular design projects around here!

This room was a pretty blank canvas that gets great natural light but has a not-so-pretty taupe carpet that I was keen to cover up. I posted a couple months ago about some of the decorating decisions I was making in this space and I’m really happy with how it all turned out!

The biggest purchase for our foyer was the floor mirror, which reflects the light from the front of the house and which (to be totally honest!) I wanted for taking Instagram stories of what I’m wearing on a given day. Many of the other items were pieces we already owned and it’s always fun for me to remix pieces in a new space. We already had the acrylic console and the porcelain umbrella stand from my Upper East Side apartment and the lacquer mirror from our Dallas townhouse. I also had a new navy cover made for our acrylic x-bench and I love that it gave it a fresh new look!

You might recall that I was having trouble finding artwork to add some color to the room and I was so happy when I stumbled upon these Casey Chalem Anderson seascape prints. Pictured above are Dune Beach (19″ x 16″ with frame) and August Water (21″ x 21″ with frame).

I also finally caved and ordered this set of ginger jars that I’ve been coveting forever. They are really substantial in person (they actually hardly fit on the console) and make me so happy! You could also totally split them up and display them in separate spaces. And they’re all really good sizes to use as vases as well!

Serena & Lily was kind enough to send me their jute border runner and I couldn’t love it any more. It’s also available as an area rug but the runner is perfect for covering up some of the carpet in our foyer.

The two prints on the other side of the mirror are Aqua Storm (19″ x 15″ with frame) and Wave Tumble (21″ x 21″ with frame). The bottom one is my favorite of the four!

  1. Love this post! Decorating is such a project. We’ve lived in our home for over 2 years and I am still working on finishing rooms. Interior decor is such an investment and sometimes it takes a long time to get it right! The foyer is stunning though. I can’t wait to see the rest of the home when it is ready.

  2. It’s so you, I love it!

    I think every few months is doable and makes me feel a lot better that it’s been over a year since we’ve finished our place and I still have many rooms to share. It’s not just the decorating process that takes so long, but the shooting and creating the posts, etc. It’s a process.

    Worth the wait though! Looking forward to seeing more.

    p.s. If you need some Kelly + Fred prints for rooms, LMK!

  3. I love the prints and how the space remains so bright and airy!! Design projects are so expensive… and so tough to get just right. I constantly find myself second guessing everything so much that I never finish anything, lol.

  4. I love your design posts! They’re definitely some of my favorites 🙂 I really like how you incorporated pieces from several different places you’ve lived. And while I love seeing the finished product, I really loved your one room design posts–I find it fascinating to see how people go through the process of decorating! Perhaps you could incorporate a bit of your methods in for your next design reveal? I’m looking forward to seeing more of your home!
