House Tour: The Foyer

House Tour {Living Outside the Stacks}

Hi, and welcome to my home. I hope you’ll enjoy your visit…

Foyer {Living Outside the Stacks}

My foyer is separated in to two parts, so I’m going to split the tour into two separate posts. The foyer is one entry way but there are two walls with two focal areas. What you’re seeing today is the area you see as soon as you walk enter the house.

Since moving to Missouri, the hubs and I have discovered that we absolutely love shopping at antique stores, thrift shops, and yard sales. So many of the things that we’ve used to accessorize our home are “found” and/or reclaimed items.

I think this gives our home a little more comfort, history, and mystery {for example, who wore those cowboy boots before I thought they’d make a nice accessory for my front door?}.

Given my intense fear hatred of birds, you might find it odd that I have peacock feathers in my home but I love the colors. And they mimic the other colors in my home.

And, since this is the home of the most fabulous librarian to ever walk the planet, I have a neat little stack of books sitting atop a bench that the hubs and I found at a flea market. The cross candle holder was purchased so long ago that I can’t remember from where…

The hubs and I have done our best to create a warm and welcoming entry way that reflects the lives and loves of the people who live here. I can’t wait to show you more…

  • I adore those wood floors & white trim… I’m hoping to do that in our home some day. Great idea for a post btw too! I’d copy it on my blog, but mine would just be pics of various messes that never got cleaned up!

    • LOL that’s one of the few good things about having older kids: the mess is confined to their bedrooms. I like the dark wood against the white too, a beautiful contrast.

    because i kinda sorta know your style (and taste) this does not surprise me at all! i think the entryway is so important because it sets the tone for the rest of your house and the first impression your guests will have. everything is so welcoming + inviting and i of course would make myself right at home! ps// the boots are a nice touch and maybe a subtle way to tell your guests to leave their shoes at the door.

    • Yep, you can definitely tell I live here. LOL But I also think it’s a nice mix of the hubs and the kids too. They didn’t pick anything out, but they certainly express opinions. For example, they told me that my living room was “too brown” which prompted a room redo. 🙂

    Your home looks lovely, cozy and welcoming.
