Most often it is the small touches that make a space feel complete. The best example of this is our foyer.
Notice the walls around the niche? We finally got around to painting that last bit of space on our main level two weeks ago. The other change of course is the plant inside the niche. We switched out the lucky bamboo (more about that here) for a variegated Sansevieria also called the snake plant or the mother-in-law’s tongue plant.
Both the plant and the planter were from Loews, the planter on clearance. Hoping that one day the plant will be tall and skinny enough to fill that niche space.
This shot of the other side of the stairs is the closest any photo has come to how the paint color, SW Kilim Beige, looks to the natural eye.
A view into our home standing at the door.
Now for the dizzying looking upwards shot. Again all the walls are SW Kilim Beige though it all looks white in this pic.
Again goes to show you that the same paint color looks different in different light.
Do you have a two story foyer? What did you do with your 2 story wall?
Love how everything in the home looks now! You cease to amaze V!

Love it.. so pretty, the wainscoting is really a fabulous idea. We did it in our front entrance and dining room, and Love it.. Your crown molding is awesome.
Luckily all these were standard for our builder. Don’t know if we would have added it if it was otherwise 🙂

My parents have a very similar foyer area. Instead of a niche in the wall, its simply a wall where we have a grandfather clocking resting against. I like your decision to paint the wall, it makes it look as if the room is now more connected with the beige colors! Nice job!
