Today I am presenting my foyer dressed for Christmas.


Great Room/Christmas 2015

As you enter my home you walk into a small foyer area

and immediately see the great room.

To the left of the foyer, there is a skirted chair to greet you

with the sentiments of the season.

The trim in the chair skirt is the same ribbon as I used on the package.

On one side of the foyer is my antique French buffet.

As you can see the foyer pretty much spills into the Great Room.

The piece of furniture in the foyer is my antique French Buffet

that I purchased in France. Truly my favorite piece of furniture in my home.

This year, while attending an estate sale,

I ran across this amazing antique ironstone foot bath.

I can honestly tell you that I got a really great deal on it.

I love this piece in front of the stained glass.

I added a little bling with the white and silver holly garland

around the preserved boxwood wreath.

I filled the Leah Hurricane by Pottery Barn

with a bottle brush tree and a Norman Rockwell caroler.

I use the Department 56 snow as it is so fine and more realistic.

The hurricane grouped together with the 2 ceramic trees by Raz

and the winter bird, also by Raz.

Faux holly berries placed on the topiary balls

that top the candlesticks.

Faux birch branches lean against the wall to lend a place

for the owl to rest.

My French wine/picnic carrier sits beside the French antique buffet.

The wine bottles go at the bottom where there are dividers

and the plates are placed at the top section of the carrier.

This too, I purchased while I was in France.

Faux evergreen stems decorate the bottom portion of the wine carrier.

I hung a wreath of ornaments on a mirror that is directly across

from the French buffet that hangs in the stairwell.

You can see the reflection of the stained glass and buffet in the mirror.

I remember calling my hubby from France and asking him to take measurements

of this space in the foyer.

As I knew this was the spot that I wanted it to be.

Turns out that it definitely was perfect on this wall in the foyer.

Vintage baskets fill the space on the ledge above the doors.

  35. Writing work with this nature, usually is apparently highly unprofessional.
    Now that I’ve seen my biggest challenges, financially, like a professional and a small business owner, I understand that “Grow or Die” isn’t a choice but a complete
    necessity to the survival of any business. Maybe it’s
    since it is the best way businesses have been built inside past.
