Fall Foyer

The foyer is the first thing people see when entering our home. I added a few Fall touches to welcome them.
This is the front door shooting from our family room. When you enter you see the front staircase and dining room is to the left.

I've had these metal pumpkins from Kirkland for several years. They have been in different rooms and even outside on the porch. They will probably get painted at some point because they are showing signs of age. Hey, that's exactly what I have to do every morning with makeup, as I age . lol

Hubby said the pumpkins were too plain in and of themselves and that I needed to add color or something.

So out came the picks. Much better!

A floral basket sits at the top of the landing.

My pumpkin tree is at the top on the cat walk.

A night shot coming down the cat walk.

Shooting down from upstairs you see this table and mirror behind the front door.

A pumpkin display is on the floor.

Wall art is above the door! I did this a couple of years ago. It was an easy project.

Looking way up at the chandy.

This is the other side of the foyer leading up the stairs.

I hope you enjoyed the tour and that you have a fun filled, safe weekend!

Till next time!

Love all your gorgeous fallery! Ha, just made a new word!

Thanks for visiting. Hope your weekend is a peaceful one!

Everything looks fantastic - and so welcoming! Hubbie was right...the color in the pumpkins was just the right touch. And I haven't made my pumpkin tree yet. Boo. Double boo - but I've already recruited a girlfriend to give it a try with me...always more fun. Sure wish you were closer:)

Have a great weekend, friend.

You do such a great job of making your home look so warm and inviting! What does the writing above your front day say?

Your home is just so beautiful and I love every detail of your Fall Decor. The entry is gorgeous and so welcoming. How do you like our chandy? I am loving it so much and enjoy the dimmer in the evening. I have the same dining chairs you have but mine are in the kitchen and I painted them when we upgraded the kitchen. Your stair pumpkins are perfect going up the stairs and the catwalk is awesome with the little tree.
I am always inspired when I visit. You are so talented with your vignettes.

Have a great week my friend and blessings of the season.
