I’ve been focused on my foyer and it’s still a work in progress but I wanted to share with you and get some feedback.
I knew I wanted a bit of a boho feel, and I knew I wanted a neutral color palette. ¬†The walls were painted a dark gray, I really like it with the contrast of the white doors. ¬†The final steps are to upholster the pair of benches and some accessories for the table.
So, here is where I got everything: ¬†I ordered the Moroccan Wedding Blanket (used for the rug) at Calypso St. Barth. ¬†The Parsons table and the pair of benches are from Casa Victoria in Silverlake. ¬†They have the best vintage pieces!! The gilded haystack lamp was from a random vintage shop for $35! ¬†I couldn’t believe my luck. ¬† The large mirror is from Leslie’s in Long Beach. ¬†That mirror is so heavy, hanging it was not fun.
The Parsons desk needs some accessory love…. I can’t even decide what to put on it, and I don’t want to put something that I don’t love, and the scale needs to be right.
The wicker chair is from Warehouse 1333 in Long Beach, another one of my absolute favorite places for vintage furniture. ¬†It is extremely rare that I leave there empty handed. ¬†I recovered the seat myself with gold fabric, and then the framed picture is a poster that I got in the South of France with my sister.
So, now let’s discuss the benches which desperately need attention. ¬†I’ve been looking for inspiration high and low. I am thinking about doing either a dark teal or navy solid velvet on theem. ¬†But then part of me wants more fun… ¬†But, would that fight the Moroccan wedding blanket?
Here are a few pics that have been saved on my desk top.

I love these, but matching two prints to go with the parsons desk and the morroccan wedding blanket may be too tricky. Image via Good Bones Great Pieces
Animal print could be an option, or too much? Image via Bazaar of Serendipity
I love this pairing of fabrics.... I am just not sure if it will work in my space. image via Pinterest
Feedback would be amazing!! Would love your thoughts on what it needs, what works, what doesn’t…..
