It’s that time again – time to take you onsite with me to one of my interior design projects, to the behind the scenes of the design steps that we implemented in a foyer – for my cool clients Stephanie and Bill and their daughter Kathryn. They wanted the entrance to make a statement (a cool, hip, unique, fun, with a dash of elegance type of statement!). Wall paper is great for statement walls, however, they can also be expensive. So the alternative that I recommended was: stenciling the walls!  We used a fun triangle design stencil painted in a soothing gray (with sprinkles of color – see photos below). Here’s my design game plan for an elegant foyer  . . . .

Besides the stenciled wall we added:

1. new ceiling light fixture with a black shade
2. mail holder
3. cute BIRD hook for Kathryn (child height)
4. adorable BUTTON hooks for the adults
5. gorgeous mirror
6. beautiful half-moon (semi-circle) bench
7. magnetic paint on 1 wall
8. a map decal (that had me wrestling it)
9. painted some stenciled triangles with POP of colorful paint

Plus a few more fun elements. More pics to follow on another post, today’s post features the awesome stencil.

We added sprinkles (no, not the eating kind!) to the stencil. I presented the stenciled decorative wall design as a 2 PART DESIGN:

Part (1) paint the stencil (triangle design) is a soft gray wall color

Part (2) add sprinkles of color (from sample paint … super economical like $4.95 a jar) for even more visual coolness. Below I am labeling which triangle to paint and in what color for the contractor / client.

 

See the SPRINKLES (of color):

Once I knew they had a toddler, I knew I wanted to add for them toddler height hooks so Kathryn can hang her coat and bags.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! We replaced the blah/boring ceiling light fixture with a black colored shade pendant one.  I love the shade – it’s the perfect welcoming beacon for when the front door is opened. Finding it was def one of ‘those’ moments, ya know, the ….  clouds part as I spot it ….  knowing it’s absolutely perfect for the space”. Glad they thought so too (phew!). Hooks added, as well as … semi-circle bench …. mirror etc.

HERE’S THE NEW ELEGANT (FUN) FOYER

Stay tuned to see how the wall we decorated with magnetic paint turned out. I have to run out to catch my metro north train for installation today. Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
