A Not-too-Serious Foyer

It's been a stressful work week, and it's going to get more stressful before it gets better. But this morning, however, I saw something at a client's house that made me smile. My clients are a young couple with too small girls. They needed quite a bit of new stuff, and wanted to use as much of their existing furniture as possible in order to make the budget stretch as much as possible. Luckily, the wife's parents had just redecorated their condo and had sent their daughter some really great things, including a pair of fabulous 40s inspired turquoise velvet chairs with tufted backs.
The only new purchase in this vignette in the long foyer/entrane hall is the serpentine front gold leafed chest and the pillows with gold paillettes.

The gold chest gives some weight and seriousness to the grouping. The chairs add some sass, and the lighted hearted art and Asian dolls keep it young and fun.


If these chairs don't put a smile on your face, I can't help you. I hope this cheerful entry brightened your day as much as it did mine.
