My Black Foyer

I took everyone’s feedback on painting my foyer very seriously, and decided to go black on black.  I just think it’s the chicest. And the easiest. And it’s what my boyfriend wanted.

Welcome to our home.

Don’t judge my half ass styling.  The majority of my belongings are still packed up in boxes.  I don’t even have a sofa yet people.

The white mirror was bought for a client, then I decided to keep it, and now I have decided I don’t like it.  It looks a little too Kardashian. The brass etagere is vintage, as are most of the items on it (needs to be properly styled) plus a little Target action. Duh.

In other news, the inside of my fireplace is also now black, and also not properly styled.

Everything is vintage/thrifted, with the exception of Jessica’sOui” print.

Yes, there will be large art over the mantle, don’t have it yet.

Yes, the busts will be on stands so they are proportioned properly, don’t have em yet.

That is all.


  1. OMG in love with it all!! Yes, I agree that white mirror is not the best…..but everything else…to die for!!! The etagere is so good…and the brass antelopes…..and the brass body on your mantel….so good! I love Jessica’s print!

      I am on the hunt for the perfect console table and mirror replacement, plus I am not happy with the bust/pedestal/gold mirror combo (too Liberace). I wish I had the funds for an ultra modern pedestal, I love the mix of modern and ornate. The etager and fireplace/mantel is just temporary….maybe I shouldn’t have posted pics yet, but honestly it will never ever be “done!”

  2. I love the white mirror, the fireplace is to die for! Love it!

  3. I love it!!! Mucho sexiness

  6. You’re killing me! Those are my colors: black, white and gold. Love it!! – B

  7. AMAZING! Makes me want to move! I actually like the Kardashian mirror a lot! Haha. But if you don’t like it I know you will find something fabulous to take its place! Can’t wait to see more progress!

  8. Love how it is a big huge BAM against your white LM. Looks insanely awesome!!
