A beautiful first impression

Monday, December 15, 2014

You know what they say about first impressions?! Your foyer is the first thing your guest will see and there is nothing as welcoming as a big bright beautiful foyer!   

This is the beautiful foyer of the Coastal Living Showhouse in California designed by Betsy Burnham Design. It is huge and therefore offers a great spot to include a library. I would love to snuggle up in that comfy chair and read a book in the warmth of the  sun that comes streaming through the loads of windows. 

I never tire of a painted checkerboard floor. This one is done in Pratt and Lambert's Swiss Coffee and Steel Wool.

The grays play so well with the blues {which, fyi, is the color that is consistent throughout the rest of the home} And speaking of grays--the walls are painted in Dovefeather {P&L} which is one of my favorites.

You get a perfect sense that this is an approachable, beautiful family home just by stepping into this foyer.

It makes you excited to see where following these gorgeous stairs will land you, right??
