Shop This Look! Earth Tone Front Foyer
“But, how can I get that look in my space??”
This was the general theme of the questions I was getting about one space in particular that I shared in Part 1 of my “Decorating With Green” Reel series at the start of this month. And I really can’t say I’m surprised, as Jessica Sara Morris did a FAB job upgrading her front foyer from builder-basic-blah, to warm and welcoming! It’s a perfect ensemble of earthy tones, textures, and is a great use of space.
I’m going to give you all the items you need to emulate this space, BUT, before we get started, here are a few tips for success:
- Have Fun! Now, I’m not just spouting platitudes here (my competitive child self would usually respond with “It’s not fun unless you WIN ALL THE THINGS!”… and maybe still my adult self.), but it really is important to enjoy the process. Don’t stress about needing to get it “perfect” or have the exact same products. Being flexible and having fun watching it come together is important to not feel resentful of the process, and have you enjoy the space in the long run.
- Don’t expect your space to look identical. While I am an eternal optimist, it’s important to have expectations. Unless your space has the exact same dimensions and layout, chances are it won’t be a one-for-one replica of the gorgeously staged and edited Pinterest picture (but jeeze, wouldn’t that just be swell??).
- Rome wasn’t built in a day. But wouldn’t it be WAY more convenient if it was? Don’t let the TV design transformations fool you, decorating or renovating a space takes time, especially if it’s a large space or it requires a complete overhaul. Shipping times can vary, stock levels may be an issue, your husbands willingness to just INSTALL THE #$%* TOILET PAPER HOLDER ALREADY may also be an issue (not a sore spot at all, I swear…). Good spaces take time to come together, so don’t be discouraged, yours will too!
Now, let’s get to it!
Here is your focus for achieving this look:
- Primary colour: White
- Secondary colour: Sage
- Natural fibres: Jute rug, woven basket, wood mirror, wood pegs, wood bench.
- Throw in some mixed metals: black hairpin legs and door hardware, gold wall sconce.
- Add some character: Pencil drawn portrait, ceramic vases.
- OBVIOUSLY have some greenery: Cute little bunch in the bag.
The colour that was used in the original picture was actually a combination of 2 colours. While I included both with their ratios below in case you want to replicate it exactly, I also included a similar colour by Benjamin Moore in case you want it to be a one-and-done kinda situation.
I wanted to make a point to not only source products that would give you the same look as this space, but to do it from a perspective of affordability. While choosing quality products is always a primary factor in my decision making, I also don’t think you need to break the bank to do so.
Happy shopping, and don’t forget to share!!
