SUYL - My Foyer

Time for another Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life post! I've skipped a few because I have away, but today, I'm sharing my foyer.

I love my foyer - it's open and bright.  We don't use it a lot because we don't usually come in or go out of our house through the front door.

I don't have much more to say about it so come on in!

This is what you will see when you walk in the front door.

My favorite thing about this room is how much light we get from the high windows and ceiling.  Do I need to to say that the chandelier is from the early 90s when brass was "the thing?" I'm hoping to change it out to something a little warmer.

To the right is the front stairs and the office. I'd like to change out the white wood banisters to wrought iron to warm it up a little.

And to the left is our formal living room, but I couldn't get a good picture of it. When school is in, this piece of furniture is what keeps the entryway clear of clutter.  Shoes go in the basket, and jackets and backpacks go into the hutch.

Here is a view of our entryway from the hallway connecting the foyer to the kitchen.  You can kinda see the living room on the right.  We don't really ever use that room.

That's our foyer. Can't wait to see what others have done with theirs!


  1. so pretty! our foyers are similar! our builder was lennar. but our neighbors was david weekley & yalls are similar. i like how yalls houses have the crown molding around the column at the top where the ceiling meets it. i'd like to add that to our columns on our stairs!

  2. Hi Katherine. Stopping by from Kelly's. What a beautiful foyer you have. The windows bring in so much light! Blessings, Dani

  3. so pretty. love your paint color!

  4. I love all the windows.

    As you can tell, I'm slowly catching up on my SUYL reading :)
