My Festive Farmhouse Christmas Foyer

| | | | | |

Worthing Court’s Christmas foyer decor is fun and festive this year!  I’m ready to welcome friends and family alike into our home.  My entire home is filled with bright and cheery Christmas red sprinkled throughout every room, which is just the way that we love it.  Come on in!

I’m thrilled to be a part of the Home For The Holidays Christmas Tour organized by Jenna at Wife In Progress.  The links to everyone’s blog for the rest of the week are below.  If you’re joining me from The Fat Hydrangea, I’m so glad you’re here!  Isn’t Sara’s home just lovely?  I love all her inspiring ideas and diy projects.

My goal with the foyer was to set the tone for the rest of Christmas, so this great sign says it all…WELCOME!  A new skinny tree, vintage family heirloom chair and a few gifts fill the corner in front of the small chest nicely.

A garland with some luscious silk ribbon woven through it is a great way to draw your eye to the arched mirror and my wooden horse, who also has a bit of coordinating ribbon around his neck.  Notice the empty frames going up the staircase?  Yeah – the final touches of my foyer makeover kind of stalled after the purchase of our beach condo, where we been working our you-know-what’s off for the last few months.

My foyer is a real workhorse of a space in terms of traffic flow.  It contains openings to the family room, office and the stairway, plus there is a closet for coats.  All those openings and the closet door made it a quirky space to arrange.  It was easy to know what to put in the corner-nook by the staircase, but I was a bit stumped with what to do with the large plain wall leading into the office.  The addition of a board and batten wall and matching diy benches dressed that wall right up.  Now it’s a favorite spot in the house to change up seasonally!

The hooks that I added to wall were originally meant to hold excess coats when we have company and our coat closet is full, but 95% of the time the hooks are filled with seasonal tidbits.  Oops.

The decorations in my foyer set the tone for the rest of the house.  Here’s a peek into our family room, looking directly from the front door.  I hope you’ll come back in a few days to take a closer look at the tree and to see the rest of the family room!
