Rustic And Elegant Christmas Foyer

| | | |

I have put together a beautiful rustic and elegant Christmas foyer which greets guests in a festive way!

Welcome to my rustic and elegant Christmas foyer.  Come on in!

Rustic And Elegant Christmas Foyer decorated.

 

My foyer isn’t very big and that makes it impossible to photograph the whole thing in one shot.  So, I’ll start on this little wall behind the front door.

 

A starburst mirror above a small shelf in the foyer.

 

A burnished gold’ish wreath, that I picked up on clearance after Christmas last year, fits perfectly on the foyer mirror.  I was going to place the glitter house on the shelf below it, but I just love it sitting in the holiday wreath.

 

There is a small village in a wreath inside of the mirror.

 

A tiny Christmas nativity set is very simply displayed under a glass cloche.  Pretend you can’t see the dust particles, m’kay pumpkin?

The basket below the shelf is filled with branches from the woods around our house, different varieties of faux greenery, burnished gold’ish branches and a few silver Christmas tree ornaments.

 

There is a small deer with a wreath around it on the shelf.

 

On the other side of the decorated foyer, I loaded up the corner beside the staircase with a pretty packages wrapped in the neutrals, grays, black and silver that I’m loving so much this year.

 

A small bench has wrapped presents on it.

 

There is so much going on on the floor in front of the chest, that I kept the holiday decorations on top it pretty simple.

 

There are candles on the floor beside the presents.

 

All of the Christmas decorations in my foyer were inspired by this beautiful Mistletoe Baby, framed 11 x 14 gold foil print, that was provided to me by Minted.  I was able to choose the type of frame that I wanted and thought this Distressed Cottage White frame would fit in perfectly with my mix of rustic and elegant.  That’s one of the great things about the Minted website – if you are ordering framed art, you can preview it with different frames to see which one you like.

Baby It's Cold Outside Gold Foil Print From Minted.

 

As soon as I received the beautiful print, I knew exactly what I would do with it.  I thought that it would look great tucked inside of my large rustic lantern.  I embellished it by sticking some glittery snowflakes to the rustic wood frame.

Let me show it to you with the lantern door open so that you can see it better.  Drat that glare!

Those little deer have great sentimental value to me.  My mom made them waaaay back in 1959, when ceramics were a huge hobby for a lot of people.  These two are all that are left of the entire set of Santa’s reindeer and sleigh that she made.  Do you have any sentimental Christmas treasures that you pack away ever-so-carefully each year?

My foyer looks quite a bit different, now that we replaced the dark mahogany door with one filled with glass panes.  So much more light pours into the foyer during the day now.  This will give you a bit of an idea of the layout and what the new door and sidelights look like.

Do you know about Minted?  I could spend hours on their website drooling over the myriad of pieces that they have to choose from.  The website if filled with work that is sourced through on-going competitions.  Follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

 

Pin it for later!

  2. Your foyer looks beautiful, Suzy. I love the colors you featured. And, your new door looks wonderful. So much glorious light.

  3. Love how light and bright your foyer is…beautiful! 😉

  4. Since I’m a new subscriber I’m catching up on all of your goodies. Love the basket on the floor with greenery from your own yard. To find a wreath that fit your mirror was perfect. I also caught a glimpse of the ribbon on your front door wreath. I go crazy for ribbon at holidays, especially plaid.
