First Impressions

Perhaps we discuss our love for wallpaper ad nauseum, but isn’t a foyer a great place to make a bold statement and first impression with pattern?? Love these papered foyers, which set a great tone for the rest of the house.

    That entrance hall is utterly delicious! But I must confess it’s the blue on the ceiling and underside of the staircase that captures me.

    Absolutely love the angled stripe and the last one, that long-branched tree. So beautiful and pleasantly surprising!

    So true! We love them ALL (though perhaps biased on the diagonal foyer that Suysel worked on?! haha) – Love that each one carries its own little personality!

    Love, love, love the first one so much! I’m working with Elizabeth on picking out a fab wallcovering for her foyer, which is quite comparable to the first image. I have to forward her this post link!

    I wish Katie Ridder’s foyer was in my house! down to the white vases above the side cupboards. simple, elegant and so chic!
