A foyer can be well-decorated, but if there’s no where to drop your keys and sunglasses, then it’s a wasted opportunity for adding function to the room. Since I’d already bought the rugs and pendant, I decided to shop my house for something to serve as the landing zone. There is only one wall, and the door opens on that side, so I’m limited to something small and narrow.
This little stool has lived in every spot of our house, so I tried it out first, along with a large vase. But it doesn’t really provide much function, and it’s too small for the spot.
My great-grandfather’s old camel saddle is one of the coolest things we own, so it got a turn in the foyer next.
While I think it looks fun here, and I love the warm wood tones, it doesn’t provide any function. Unless you’re headed out for a camel ride. Even then, I’d probably go with something more comfortable on your tushy.
Finally I tried a little antique table my mom gave me during her recent move (don’t you love when parents downsize!?).
It adds the wood tones I like, and has a flat surface to provide a small drop zone.
Plus the narrow profile allows the door to open completely. SOLD!
I wish it were a tad taller, but I’m not about to argue with free! The final step is my favorite….adding style, color and personality. How do you feel about the makeover so far?!
