Today is the big reveal for the One Room Challenge at Calling It Home. While I didn’t quite finish everything on my list, I am happy with everything that I was able to accomplish.
The photo above shows the “before” of my foyer. Nothing was wrong with it, I was just ready for a little freshening up after 28 years!
I chose Thibaut wallpaper in the Royal pattern. The colorway is metallic pewter. (I had previously used this paper in my powder room update which you can see here.)
While it was time consuming removing the old wallpaper, preparing the walls, hanging new paper, and painting all of the spindles and trim, everything was cosmetic so I didn’t have to work around the schedule of a contractor.
I found this new planter at TJMaxx. I am using the same plant stand that I already had.
I also added a fresh plant to the planter. At Christmas, I move the planter to another location and put the big tree here in the curve of the stairs.
I purchased this vintage rug on Etsy. You can read about that purchase in this post.
The old rug is still in great condition but the orangey gold colors and the pattern clashed with the new wallpaper.
In the photo above you can see the clash between the old rug and the new wallpaper.
I love the new fabric on the settee.
The old fabric was looking really tired.
The new wallpaper makes a big impact on the stairwell wall. It is a huge wall to decorate if left painted!
The photo above shows the stairwell wall before the update.
I’m still shopping for a new light fixture for the top of the foyer as the crystal chandelier over the door is staying. I didn’t get the new sheers done for the palladian window in the upper foyer area but those will be done soon since I did purchase the fabric. I am so pleased with how everything turned out.
