The foyer has been a bright spot in our home since adding the chalkboard mirror. I don’t know why but I smile when walking to the front door so a happy place it is. The problem? Our foyer just so happens to be dachshund-loooong. I’ve been wondering what to do with the second half across from the stairs. It seemed so empty but it was much too narrow for most furniture.
I was originally thinking a bench. And it was in the “some day” category. I was even thinking of one that was the same shape as the demilune table but during our last round of musical furniture I decided to try the guest room bookcase there.
And it works! The happy spot is now a happy hall because it feels complete. Sort-of.
I’d like a runner or a bigger rug but it has to be the right price. I haven’t seen the “just right” rug yet. And one day I want moulding of some sort but that is so far down the list that it isn’t even relevant right now. Remind me I said that when I want it next week, okay?
The preserved floral arrangement is new. I bought it at my favorite local home decor store. I don’t have much in the way of greenery and I liked the mix of flowers. Faux florals have come a long way from the ivy of the 90s. I got the “Home” letters at Jo-Ann’s. They are cardboard and I intended to do something with them but I’m actually liking the organic look right now.
