New Foyer Wish List
We are still very much in the process of getting our foyer situated into the perfect entry. I am completely obsessed with the wallpaper, wainscoting and dental molding. A lot of our furnishings and decor are from our old home and were passed down or taken out of family storage as ‘filler’ until we could get what we wanted. With that being said, I do love our hand-me-downs and I’ve turned most of them into family heirlooms that I will cherish forever.
But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t had my eye on some fabulous foyer pieces. So… I thought I’d share some of my inspiration and wish list for later. We currently have some larger projects in the works so our budget will be on that for now. (But maybe my husband will actually read this and get some gift ideas for Christmas haha, just kidding, kind of). Maybe this list can kind of help you get some inspiration for your own space.
Our current mirror is a perfect little brass antique that I love. I eventually may move it to another perfect spot I’ve been eyeing it for once I add one of these to the space. I love gold and bamboo – really I love anything that has that palm beach vibe mixed with some traditional southern and hollywood regency. It’s a weird mix but I love all of it. Together, it all feels like home to me.
This mirror from Ballard Design is one of my favorites. I love the Palladian-style arched window, especially for a foyer that needs more natural light. Love, love, love. Would look so great with a beautiful foyer table underneath.
Obsessed with this Bamboo Rounded Corner Mirror in Antique Gold and for $108, it’s a great buy! I picture such fun accents on a console table with this.
This quatrefoil ‘gatsby’ style is so pretty and chic. For $130, I love the depth, shape and color. Would be great over a nice foyer table with coordinating lamps.
This is a more formal classic mirror but I love it!
Our little foyer table was a super inexpensive find that does what we need it to do for now. But, this little table will be the first thing I replace when we get around to it.. with something like one of these.
This console from Ballard Designs is a little pricey but I love the white marble top and brass bamboo turnings. Gorgeous!
This is another great option. I love the tapered legs & the open base for x-benches or baskets. AND it’s under $100, can’t beat that!
If glass and gold/metal/brass isn’t your taste, I love the traditional wooden console table, too! This is similar to what we have right now. It’s easy to dress up with more glam accents.
Something about a great lamp makes me feel so much more cozy. I love lamp lighting & a pair of lamps really balances out a welcoming entry.
I love these gold task lamps from Ballard! Perfect balance to this console table. I also love the baskets underneath, the stack of books and the dog 🙂
This pair of double gourd-style lamps is my fave. And they come in such an assortment of colors. I love, love, love them! If you aren’t sure of your decor taste, I’d say these are a safe buy & you can change up the accents around the lamps. These are timeless.
You know I love blue and white porcelain. This little lamp is precious & would be so cute in a pair or balanced to one side with another accent with some height on the other side.
This bamboo birdcage is very similar to what we have and it’s one of my favorite things in the entire house. I don’t have the pair – we just have one and balanced it out with a tall vase. I am pretty honest about what is worth splurging for… this is one of those things.
For me, a recipe for a good entryway table includes: table, lamps, mirror (or large artwork), and the little details. The ‘sit arounds’ define the space, I love little accents. I love to add a little something with height, too — it helps if it is taller than the lowest edge of the mirror/large artwork. It helps to bring the vignette and wall together seamlessly.
This orchid is 24″ tall and helps bring a light romantic floral feel to the space.
Candlesticks are another great way to add some height. If you add one lamp, add 2 or 3 as a set (in various heights) to the other side for some balance.
I always try to keep a little catch-all bowl for guest’s keys & the occasional candy. I love this blue and white.
I love to play around and change things up, especially when it’s adding holiday decor! If your table has the space for it, I love to add seating below. Obviously, measure before you order to make sure it’ll fit in the space you are picturing!
I am on a real velvet kick right now, love this little bench to tuck away under a console.
Love the nailheads and upholstery on this x-base, too!
Here are a few of my favorite looks pulled together
Aren’t these such pretty and fun inspiration? Hopefully you can easily transform your foyer (or dream about it!) with some of these pretties. I am getting so excited about our foyer dream board. Adding a fabulous wallpaper makes it even more fun!
