When I bought the mirrors to go over the foyer table they weren't exactly what I wanted - but just after the return period expired (of course), I found the perfect mirrors! So I had to get them, and I must admit that I really like them so much better!
What do you think? Better After? Would you believe that the new mirrors were only 1/2 the price of the first ones?
#2 - The Lighting:
When we were working on the foyer I purchased one chandelier for the light closest to the front door.
We have a low ceiling, so no beautiful dramatic welcoming foyer for me! I wanted to turn the second light (another fantastic boob light) in the entry hallway into a recessed can, so you got the light, but it didn't interfere with the chandelier.
One year later...skip to - still no recessed can. So I thought I should get a second chandelier while Overstock still has it!
After about an hour of grumpy grunting, and some drywall modification, I have a second chandelier!
It is a bit more dramatic, and I think I like it. I better like it - I was told that it isn't coming down (after all that grumpy groaning...)
What do you think? Better After?
#3 - The Rug:
Here is my same 'ol same 'ol rug from Steinmart that I have used in every home. I think I need a more modern change. But, this rug is just about the perfect size, somewhere in between a 4' x 6' and a 5' x 7'. It has black and gold tones.
But...I REALLY want a chevron rug in there! I bought one a while back but it was cheap and had rounded corners - yuck!
I found two on overstock.com.
I think I am leaning towards this one, but it is a little smaller than the other choice, 4ft x 5ft 7in. I like the cleaner white color with what I have going on in the two rooms right off the entry - the Guest Room and the Living Room.
This one is a little larger, a 4ft x 6ft. This one also has a more earthly cream color mixed with the black - which would show less wear and dirt. But I don't know how I feel about the earthiness....maybe not clean and crisp enough??
I am going to try this new twist on your opinion, with a survey! Let me know what you think!
