My Foyer

This would be Mr. Lincoln! He is so handsome!
I'm trying to get more pics of my apartment up. This is my entry way so far. But I feel like it needs something. Maybe a rug, or the accessories need to be moved around a little bit... I am not sure....
- I purchased the elephant garden stool and the mirror at my favorite vintage shop in Long Beach. They both are sooo heavy, I have no clue how I got it up the staircase!
- The table is from Pier One, but now that I look at the picture of the space, I really wish it were a parsons desk. But, this sofa table was $30 bucks, and for my budget, this seemed to be my best option.
- As for the accessories: The vase is from Z-Gallerie from about 4 years ago. Then, my good-luck-buddhas "Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil" I got at an Antique Mall right outside of Long Beach - Ola's. They were $20 bucks for the set, and then 30% off. Such a deal, and I just adore these guys. Every time I look at them, I smile!

Anyway, Please do let me know if you have any suggestions. I'd love some input


  1. There is too much going on and too little going on at the same time. A rug would help. If you want to keep the mirror, I'd get a larger fabulous credenza (black?) or one of those Swedish tables from Wisteria. Place the elephant where he's really used, like next to a big chair or outside your front door.

  2. PS I would reposition the little green fellows and the vase. You have them lined up like soldiers. Have you thought of turning the mirror to a vertical position? Perhaps then it would be better balanced with the table you have now.
    And I'd keep Mr. Lincoln. He's a cutie.
    I find it really helpful to study a photo.

  3. I realllly want a parsons desk! It needs something chunky - but not in the budget right now. I will definitely reposition the accessories though!! Thanks for the input!

  4. I love Lincoln! I have a cocker growing up so they hold a special little place in my heart :]

    Oh and a rug would be perfection in your foyer. And maybe an unbrella stand like the Z Gallerie Marcello or something.


So... Tell me... What do you think?
