Since I’m on a roll and procrastinating starting the dining room, I thought I’d do my resource list for you all for the foyer today but first remember when I was pining away over this little umbrella stand?
This little cutie is from Burke Decor but with a price tag of $140.00 it just wasn’t in my budget, I mean it holds umbrellas people and let’s face it I’ll probably grow tired of it quickly. I like to splurge on things like couches and lighting fixtures, things that truly will stand the test of time.
Sooooo….I was perusing Home Goods yesterday and as I walked down an aisle something incredible (to me) caught my eye and I snatched it up as quickly as I could. (I mean you have to those women at Home Goods are vultures!) I couldn’t wait to get this piece home and place it in my foyer, so not to tease you anymore here’s what I found!
I mean how cute is he??? Oh yea and “he” was only $19.99. He might seem a bit short but so was the one from Burke Decor, regardless I like him!!!
So onto the foyer resource list. A reminder of what the foyer looks like.
Moodboard and Inspiration for the Project:
Apartment Therapy Questionnaire
Style: Unconventional yet sentimental.
Inspiration: A space designed by Jonathan Adler, he’s so fun and talented!!
Favorite Element: My umbrella stand, I’d given up hope of getting one so I was super excited to find him, and so darn cheap!
Biggest Challenge: Wallpapering the space, but let’s be honest I didn’t do it! Another challenge was because we had so much going on with other projects this small space took more then 4 months to complete!
What Friends Say: I love the curtains, what you stenciled them? This is so you Laurie! (Always a big compliment!)
Biggest Embarrassment: Really none, I mean it’s a really small space!
Proudest DIY: Most everything in the space was a DIY project but if I had to pick one it would be the silhouettes, I mean how cute is Lilly??
Biggest Indulgence: My peacock mirror.
Best Advice: Know when you’re not up for the challenge, like I knew I couldn’t wallpaper this space, there were too many nooks and crannies, this is the first thing guest see, I didn’t want them to see something half way done!
Dream Source: Probably Wisteria, I’d buy the “real” peacock mirror that cost over $2,300.00!!
