A while back--actually I think it was maybe a year and a half ago?--I had an accident in the foyer. My very large crystal chandelier fell from my 18-foot ceiling after 11 years. For no apparent reason. It just decided to fall.
So began a foyer re-do. We replaced the floor with black granite, had the walls re-painted, and changed the spindles on the banister from black to white.
The foyer before was a gold faux finish with a solid black banister and spindles. After the accident, we had it painted. Below are pictures of the foyer with the Christmas decorations.
The paint is now a warm taupe/silver faux finish. The spindles are painted and decorated with garland, twinkle lights, and gold/silver/white decor.
The new chandelier is very different than the old.
The new floor is absolute black granite.
The floor reflected the lights from the tree and banister.
The tree holds white ornaments hand-made by my mother years ago.
I added silver mesh ribbon and other decor to my garland this year.
The foyer table vignette is pretty much the same, but I changed the candles from gold to glittery white.
A view of the top staircase and tree. Since both my cameras are broken, I had to use my cell phone to take these photos, so the lighting is not the best!
Tried to catch a few pictures at night--
And, since it is New Year's Eve, a few celebratory tables from a few years back!
Wishing you all a happy, safe, healthy, and prosperous 2015! Come back soon for my Christmas table settings!!
Happy New Year!!
