Fancy Foyers

Today I’m dreaming of living in a beautiful apartment with a formal entry papered in Gracie or de Gournay.

I think it would be fun to try and paint an oversized and stylized floral/vine pattern in the entry way/wall of our next place. I like a loose design, sort of like this pattern I spied on the walls at Forever 21 a while back.

Probably not yellow though. Maybe midnight blue? With a huge antique mirror.

Maybe I’ll buy a couple of floral design books in the meantime and sketch up some ideas…

Maybe something more like these colors:

  1. I saw your tweet about the Hartford half-marathon…a friend of mine run's it every year because she says it's a great course and the best part is that they have GREAT foot at the end…apparently a culinary school whips up some great stuff for the end!

  2. Hi Jenny! I must say that you have a very understanding husband. My husband wouldn't be too keen on "floral" on our walls. I love the look though!

  3. I saw that yellow and thought, "that looks like Forever XXI!" and then saw your text about it. I was in the store in Chicago and wanted to photograph the walls and did so with my phone and one of the employees was allllll kinds of upset about me taking the pic and said I couldn't! It was really funny to me to think I couldn't take a pic of the wall, but I'm glad you got away with it! My friend saw the whole confrontation go down and took one for me. It was a little diff than this. It was purple on white. Very cool. :)
