Texture and More Texture

1.21.2016

The foyer is the first thing you see upon entering the house and I like to change up the vignette on the French antique chest as the mood strikes. It has looked the same since taking the holiday decor down. I didn't realize how much texture is in this vignette until I started editing the photos.

On one side there is wicker, metal, leather and bone plus the added patina of the tarnished silver and the aged antler.

More texture is found with this ivy and fern fronds set in moss and tucked in the ironstone dish.



On this side are more leather books and ironstone with pine cones.

More texture is found on this new stone lamp and the linen shade. I ordered this Aidan Gray lamp from Joss & Main at a really good price before Christmas. It even came with two shades. One light and one dark.

And there is even more texture on the wall with the wooden mirror frame and the antique antler trophies.

 This is what the foyer looks like on a cold and cloudy morning which is what we have going on again these days with a chance of snow in the wee hours Saturday.
 I wish it would snow while I'm awake so I can see it fall. We rarely experience snow around here, but I love to watch it.

Stay warm!

  1. Love the textures, Kim. Everything looks beautiful! I love the photo with the books and pine cones. If you need to see some snow, come on up to NJ. We are expecting a blizzard to hit on Saturday! My kids are thrilled since we've only had a dusting so far this winter.

  2. Life is all about fabulous texture. Our decor,fashion,food,all in the eyes of the be holder. Shine,color depth, layers of age,and memories, everything we do sparks a smile! I love leaving shades open on a winter night to catch a glimpse of white flurries layering earth . Smiles!
    Lovely vignettes.

  20. I was wondering what you call that lovely high piece of furniture in your foyer? It seems taller than a buffet, is it a bar?

    1. Sharon, all I know is it is a tall chest that I bought in France. I just loved the patina of it and the size and it was an awesome price.

  22. I shared you post about the rug you removed with my husband tonight. We have been wanting a rug in the living room, but we both decided that we just track in too much sand.
