Decorating Entry Way/Living Room /Foyer - Journey So Far.....

Hello friends!!

Want to take you thru the entry way into our sweet home. We have a high ceiling Entry way/Foyer. That was one of the key factors that motivated us to buy this house. You have seen most of this room in different posts, this post summarizes the decorating journey of our  Entry Way/Living Room /Foyer so far. 

Previous owner had painted only two rooms (guest bedroom and master bedroom), rest of the rooms were plain white.

Before:




We painted this wall in chocolaty custom color


Added the board and batten





This wall still needs attention.



To dress up the windows, added Indian Inlay Cornice



Indian Inlay Cornice, Brass lamp, Brass Artifacts, fire trumpet flowers (kanakambara) plant, Elephant plant stand add nice touch to the Indian theme that is going on in this room.




Gold x-base table is from world market.


Rest of the room still remain the same except for this side of the stairs, Recently I replaced the x-base table with this dual tone dresser. Another Craigslist list find, ginger jar lamp adds nice touch to the dresser. South Indian lamp stand pops up against the Gujarati Mirror work Torana.


I love how this wall is shaping up specially since this is what one gets to see as soon as one enters.

I still have a looong way to go to call it done.
-- Replace coffee and Side tables
-- Replace sofa (or the pillows to start with )
-- Curtains ??
-- Change the lamps
-- Gallery wall ??
-- May be crown molding?
-- List goes on


Come back next week to see what we did with high ceiling entry way.
