Happy Friday! I really can't believe that we're nearly 10 days into September already, because I feel like it was just New Years!! This year has been flying by at lightning speed and before you know it, it will be Christmas. I'm still just trying to get my new home- can I still say new if I've been in for 3 months?!?- put together. By the time I get everything where I want it, I will have to take everything down to hang all the holiday decorations! Oh, first world problems at their finest, am I right?
Anyway, one of the spaces I really wanted to get done was the foyer or entryway. In this house, it's quite a large, unusable space. I really wanted to have a warm, welcoming vibe while using all the wall space that's in that room. I've always wanted to display all my many travel photos from over the years. They are some of my favorite pics and transport me back to the destination when I see them. So it was kind of a no-brainer to have a giant gallery wall in that space.
This picture wall was not so easy to execute. Looking back, I think I was a bit over my head when I thought I could just hang these pictures perfectly. Let's just say, there was a lot of drawing on the wall, measuring and maybe even some tape! It took me three hours from start to finish to get it perfect -and it's still not perfect but there is no way I'm taking those bad boys down and starting again- and admire my work. Overall though, I'm pretty happy with how the whole space turned out and will say that at this point in my home decorating process, this is my fav room to just sit in.
What about you, do you have a foyer to decorate? How do you style such an unusable space??
Have a happy weekend!!
