Updating the Foyer with Paint

There is nothing like a fresh coat of paint to give some new perspective on your décor. Plus, winter time is the best time to do some DIY. Being stuck inside and not out in the yard….I get all kinds of ideas. 

So let’s refresh things with a new coat of paint and see where we end up.

Say goodbye to the old dark purple…..and the 1,000 nail holes from doing a gallery wall.

Updating the Foyer with Paint

I went with white for two reasons;  One, I also wanted to paint the ceiling and two, when I can’t decide on a new color or to do a stencil….A fresh clean slate is what I like to start with.

Now when I see the clean crisp wall, my mind wanders.... Lotta choices out there!

I am thinking a colored stencil on this wall would be a great punch of drama.

Here is some of the inspiration I am finding and where my brain is leaning towards…


I am thinking white walls with a colored stencil would rock this small entryway. What do you think?

Maybe a nice metallic colored paint? Maybe Pantone's color for 2015 Marsala....

But for now….I’m still coming up with a lot of ideas. 

I put a few thing back, just to give me some perspective on how my wandering thoughts were doing….

But it definitely has gotten brighter in here.

Ohhh, the possibilities!


There’s nothing like starting off with a clean slate!
