Yes, I remember the days of painstakingly pulling off dated wallpaper but now wallpaper is strip-able especially when the surface is primed. It’s not inexpensive but the wallpaper in a small foyer like ours makes a statement!
Priming The Surface
This is a before shot of Kenny, the wallpaper hanger. He was impressed with the smooth finish already on the walls and the premium paint that was used (Benjamin Moore Regal Simply White)…making it easier to have the wallpaper adhere to the surface.
I wanted something that felt coastal but that I wouldn’t get tired of…enter Schumacher’s Abstract Leaf in Linen. I have a trade account but you can also get it here from Wayfair. There are different colors.
Bamboo Mirror Above Heirloom Demilune Table
The French demi-lune table was in our foyer growing up. The Serena and Lily Lanai bamboo mirror is a fairly recent purchase. It’s heavy! And it’s on sale right now.
It’s nice to have a plant or fresh flowers in a foyer.
New Leaf Motif Chandelier
Carrying through with the leaf pattern…this is the small-sized Hampton chandelier by Circa Lighting. It comes in other sizes and finishes, too.
Remember The Ceiling
This “fifth wall” might be my favorite part of the small foyer…look up.
A Bench Or Chair To Remove Shoes
There is a shower for sandy feet by the back door. But Howard sometimes uses this bench by the front door. I wish I would have straightened the baskets!
And that’s how to make a statement in a small foyer with wallpaper!
