Renovations at The Oak House-The Foyer

Monday, January 8, 2018

It's been quite a while since I posted any updates to the house.  But I have been working over the last few months.  I thought I would first show you some changes we've made to the foyer.  When we first saw this house, one thing that stood out was the natural light.  It filled this open, two-story foyer with the most incredible airy, bright light.

What wasn't so great was the mauve trim and doors and dated light fixture.  But those could all be changed.  Creamy white paint, paired with crisp, charcoal black doors and window trim make a bold statement while allowing the light to shine.

Even on a cloudy day, the space remains bright and its the perfect spot for some of my favorite accessories--houseplants! I plan to add more artwork and hang new lighting, and eventually even re-stain the handrails, but I'm loving the progress so far!
