Happy Entryway

The entryway or more formally known - the foyer is one of the most important spaces in a home. It is the first thing people see when they enter the house and sets the tone for what's to come. This foyer is described as "Happy Graphic" in Domino the book and I couldn't think of a better description. The graphic cut out screen creates a separate entry where there wasn't one and still keeps it open to the rest of the house. The console table on the right proves to be a functional and fashionable piece of foyer furniture housing a lamp, books and some decorative vases. Another functional piece of  foyer furniture is an entryway bench which is the perfect place to take off shoes. A few other elements I love are the contrast between the white walls and ebony floors as well as the fun pops of colour in the accessories but my favourite element is the honeycomb mirror which creates a sight line and brings you into the house.
