Freshening Up A Foyer

While I do not have a pic of the foyer in our soon to be ours house
in Victoria, Texas, let me just say that I have plans to freshen it up.
To me a foyer should say something about the inhabitants.  It's a
way of letting everyone know just a bit about you as they walk through
the front door.  In our case, we will be incorporating two different
styles ~ my Mom's and mine yet with the same interests.

Of course you all know, I am a cozy country cottage kind of girl,
while my Mom has much more refined tastes.  So I am going to combine
the things I love with those she loves.  This is my current entry at
Ash Tree Cottage.

And of course, I could easily live with something like this.  Dogs
and horses reflected everywhere.  Very English country home.
While Mom loves horses and dogs too, and spent lots of time
watching me sail over fences ... she is more sophisticated than I.

So perhaps something a bit more refined like this.
The foyer has enough room for us to use two groupings
of furniture.

One thing is for sure though, the equestrian theme will be front and 
center, but then ...

perhaps a few dog references will enter the scene too ~
right Bentley?

We are crazy busy right now.  Even so, I am still
decorating in my dreams.

Happily Joining ~

Seasonal Sundays

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Yes a foyer is the first glimpse into the occupier's life. Mine is a mess at the moment so, there we go! I do love the English country house theme and these foyers usually are the most welcoming and feel like home. Enjoy your dreams, they will soon be reality. Take care. Chel x

  2. You will soon have a new canvas for your designing artistry and I can see you will incorporate horses and dogs in your new home.

  3. I like your inspiration photos that you took......the last three. '-) Smiling...........

  4. You must be dreaming every night about decorating your new home! How exciting and scary at the same time. But, I bet it's hard to sleep just laying there thinking about everything you want to do and planning it out.

    It won't be long!!


  5. I know it will be beautiful. Can't wait to see it. Your a girl after my own heart, always dreaming of decorating!

  6. How much fun to be planning all of the aspects of your new home, and of course, Bentley must remain front and center. xo Laura

  7. You must be excited about making all the new plans. Bentley seems to be front and center in your life as are my mini doxies Peanut and Reeses.


  8. I love that picture of the tree stand I would take that home if I found one.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
