Welcome Home: Foyer Before & After

Slowly, very slowly, I am getting pictures up from clients homes. I am trying to master my camera enough to not have to hire a photographer, but as you may be able to tell- this is still a work in progress. Today I have to hit the ground running so here is a quick before and after.Above is a client's foyer before and below is the after.
One big change was the light fixture. This light I designed for the specific space and we had it custom made. Another instant way to change a room is to add a rug.Sources:
Rug: Eighteenth Street Orientals (Birmingham, AL)
Light on Table: Client's own
Shade: Village Firefly (Birmingham, AL)
Mirror& Console: To-The-Trade available through Marianne Strong Interiors

Have a wonderful Monday!

One of my most favorite before/after pictures to date. You did an excellent job. I know the light fixture was a big part of the change.. However, to me, it was the front door!
