Show us Your Life - Foyers


Today I am participating the Show Us Your Life Series on Kelly's Korner.  Welcome to my foyer!  Here's the front door with my cute little mail basket and initial wreath.


Off to this side of the foyer is my office/studio.  I love that I can see everything that is going on in the front yard front my spot at my desk.  It also gets great light.  These beautiful columns separate my space and I am crazy about them!
 

We didn't build this house, but if we had I would have wanted those columns and this light fixture.  It's huge but it just makes the space complete.
 

The entire foyer standing in the den...
 

...and standing in the front door.  The kids' rooms and bathroom are on the other side of the foyer.  I've never had a foyer before and am really enjoying this space!  I do need something to hang on that blank wall.


This is the secretary desk and chair passed down to us from my husband's grandmother.  It's filled with special books, scrapbooks, and photos.  I recovered the seat and am having a pillow made and monogrammed to match.  I can't wait!
 

This is the only foyer art I have up so far.  This collage of our trip to the NCAA Final Four hangs right by the front door.
 

The little zebra stool is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the whole house.   It's in the corner right by the front door.  It's the perfect spot to toss your purse on when you are just running in.  The cat also likes to sit her so she can see out the front door.

That's my foyer...now I'm off to see yours!  Leave me a comment and let me know that you stopped by!

I love your light too! And the collage of the NCAA Final Four. What a great way to remember a special time.

As you can tell I am slowly catching up on my SUYL reading :)
