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