please come in: the foyer




This post may contain my affiliate link. For more information, please see my disclosure policy: Thanks! :)


The “foyer” sounds a bit formal to me, I prefer entryway, but I probably have half a dozen blog posts from previous homes with that title so we’ll go with foyer, okay?
I wanted a fun, fresh green table - I don’t know why. Maybe because the family room, dining, and kitchen all run together so I’m trying to coordinate those colors but wanted to brighten things up a bit in this area as you first come in?? The table  is painted with Sherwin-Williams 6445 Garden Grove in ProClassic latex paint . It reminds me of a 40’s jadeite green and brings some life to the space. I found the table on Joss & Main -- it is called the Safavieh Abram Console.
(this is coming out from the office – if you want to see the floorplan it is here.)

It was also a sea of white, so I wanted to ground it a bit with the door. Urbane Bronze from  Sherwin-Williams (SW 7048) in their Emerald paint was the perfect solution! It is a dark, rich charcoal gray with almost some brown undertones. 
We went with a transom window here, but I want to put some wood details on it – future project! The planked walls are simply cut 1/4” mdf about a nickel space apart.

I was seriously scared when I was painting, but with doors, keep going! A dark color like this takes 2-3 coats. My kids kept saying, Mom! What are you doing to the white door? My husband just shakes his head and keeps walking by. He knows better than to ask.  :)

I do love the way it turned out though and they all said they liked it this morning, so I guess we’re okay.

The accessories are from our previous home, nothing new or fancy except a wild fake plant from a yard sale.sherwin williams garden grove

I can’t wait to share more good news from Sherwin-Williams next week – saving money, beautiful paint: you’ll love it!

  9. I thought the first image was a magazine picture. Your foyer looks so polished. The green is beautiful. I also love the contrast of dark doors.

  10. Lovely entryway! Question - how wide did you cut the MDF for the planked wall?

  11. Gorgeous foyer! I am in love with the paint color on the little table. I've been considering a frothy mint color for the laundry room (that we JUST painted this past winter, but I'm not lovin' the blue color we went with). Thinking that green may be THE one! Gonna get a sample. I also really like the planked walls. We are looking into doing the same on the wall where our fireplace is and your photos are inspirational!
