First impressions are always important, and Sara and I were so happy to find a house with a nice foyer. It’s the place we’d be greeting family and friends and welcoming them into our home and we wanted the foyer that could make a good first impression. Here’s what it looked like just a little while ago…
Notice the abundance of more wood. Wood on the floor, wood trim, wood doors, wood stairs – oh wait, and a RED RUNNER.
Here’s the view towards the front door…lovely. Don’t you like the light fixture? It’s made of shiny brass and clear plastic. Which I guess was good because we hit it a lot when carrying things into the house.
Now you can see the stairs a little better with the first of two turns or landings. I really liked that feature and the little window too. There’s another window at the second landing so there’s lots of light. The red carpet was something special. We always joked about the star-studded ‘red carpet’ events we’d have. And do you see that little sliver of door to the left? A closet you guessed?
Nope! It’s a closet that’s been turned into the world’s tiniest powder room! Our brand new, state of the art powder room came complete with a boxy medicine cabinet, linoleum flooring and a gorgeous green toilet seat!!
And there you have it – red carpet, green toilet seat and lots and lots of wood. Okay that’s the bad, but on the positive side, the foyer has a good amount of space, an interesting staircase, and nice original details. Time to roll up those sleeves!
