Pretty Perfect Pad: Foyers

It's time for another... 

This time we're talking foyers!

Light, airy, fresh and with a touch of glam seems to be what I'm always drawn towards. These are a few spaces that I'd definitely be using as foyer inspo if I were building my dream home.

A round table is one of my fav looks in a spacious foyer.

I don't think I've seen a more stunning home than Lauren Santo Domingo's apartment. 
I love the floors and neutral palate in this entry, and the Pierre Frey fabric just rocks this space. 

Some form of brass is always a must!

I'm also very partial to a fun statement tile like above and below... 

And on the polar opposite end of the fresh/airy spectrum - I'm pretty sure I'd give anything for this little situation goin' on here!


Classic with a twist sums up the design 
aesthetic for my dream foyer.

No biggie surprise, I think my favourite foyer has
to be this one in Ruthie Sommer's home.

I love how all of the elements work together: 
the grasscloth wallcovering, the scale of the pattern 
on the floor and the floors themselves, antique urns, 
settees, drapes.

And the perfect balance between formality and accessibility.

The b+w floors are a MUST in my dream foyer btw!!

My father's childhood home had this flooring in its 
foyer and so there is a certain nostalgia about them 
in addition to them being  both so classic 
and gorgeous.

This next pic is actually a hotel in Italy, 
but it's stunning and would work perfectly as a foyer.

Love these floors as well...

And not your usual suspects, large-scale 
pieces of furniture -  e.g. settee, round 
table, bench etc. are another must have.

Would love a foyer large enough to 
accommodate a circular sofa.

This next piece is gorgeous.

Lastly, I'm not at all about sparse for the front entry. 

I like there to be layers and "stuff" and lots of it!

There you have it folks.
Be back next week with another 
Pretty Perfect Pad post!!

Happy day friends!!
