entry hallStep Into our 1920’s FoyerJanuary 31, 2014 By Mary Ann Pickett Leave a CommentIf you get this by email, I’m sorry aboutthe three consecutive posts in one email.(thank you, Donna, for notifying me about the lack of email posts you were receiving).I think it is fixed (the drain is unclogged:)and you will seeone post every four or five days.I’ve been playing with vignettes on top of our French Louis Philippe commode in our foyer.I think this would also be a good place to set up a bar when we have a party.This leaded glass window is just as you enter the front door.Here is the room before we moved in.In the 1920’s, it was important to have a larger foyer (in relation to the apartment size)for prestige sake. I thought about putting a round table in here, but it would be tight due to the bump out on the left.And there was only one place that the French commode would fit.This room is actually darker most of the day, so I wanted a lighter rug to lighten it up.With the money from our moving sale(thank you to everyone who came)I bought this…Hana Rug from Restoration HardwareOn the bench, there is a new reversible linen pillow from Pottery Barn. On sale now ($30) in different colors…grab it!The suzani pillow was in our daughter’s former room.Mirrors help expand the space and reflect the light.Everything is landing in new places here.People were celebrating Chinese New Year last weekend. As we walked through Chinatown, I noticed lots of bamboo shoots for sale and wondered about the significance. According to Nations Online:The word for bamboo shoots in Chinese also sounds like the phrase “wishing that everything would be well” So, I bought some.These antique bottles were on the mantel.The last time I posted about them, a reader commented thatthe Napa Soda bottle was rare and valuable.Our little angel/devil pumpkin puppy, Chief has been on vacation in Santa Monica with our daughter (aka Mom “B”).Sometimes, when I’m working at my desk,he just leaps onto my lap,which can be unnerving when I’m concentrating.But I want that little guy BACK!Happy Chinese New Year and“Wishing that everything would be well” FOR YOU!Participating inThe February Blue and White BashRelated PostsSF Decorator Showcase…The Ideas!San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2018 HighlightsA Strikingly Updated Front Door and Foyer MakeoverWHAT IS classic • casual • home ?
