Before & After
About a year or so ago, I wrote a post talking about the long wall in our entry foyer. The wall needed something, so one adventurous day I started hanging some of my smaller quilts. The post drew the attention of another blogger, who just happened to be doing an article on decorating with quilts. I was thrilled she wanted to include my wall in her article.
Well, I'm always moving things around. The wall needed a change---maybe it has been the hot summer days??? I did some rearranging and this is the foyer wall now.
A simple design---seems to have a more "uncluttered" feel. I added a mirror. Someone once told me that foyers should have mirrors. Not sure why---Do you know? Notice the reflection in the mirror. Opposite the wall I added a screen to give more of an "entry feel" to a very open floor plan. The screen is draped with two older quilts, framed quilt needlework, small pedestal with a lamp. The lamp adds a nice soft glow to the area in the evenings. I'm enjoying both looks and I know I'll change things again, that's just the way I am. So for now, that's the foyer!!!
Do you use quilts in your home's decor? Have a wonderful Friday & Happy Quilting!
