One of these days, I would like to tackle my foyer.
It’s not really on the top of my list right now.
Mainly because my husband sees absolutely nothing wrong with it.
But to me, it is just a little boring,
and I am quite tired of the oak staircase!
Here is what I am thinking for the staircase:

This was in the Wegmans flyer a year or two ago.
Of course the extra moldings add a lot to it
but I am focusing on how my stairs would look
with white risers and spindles.
I think just that change would make a huge difference.
(This Christmas tree helps too!)
My foyer gets some wonderful afternoon light,
especially this time of year.
(Probably why the staircase has faded so much
and taken on a yellowish tinge.)
The paint in the foyer is Benjamin Moore’s Bone White
with Decorators White for the trim.
So that’s basically it.
I am in the planning stage
so you won’t see any changes for a while.
I have to keep the tile
because it continues thru the kitchen and back hall
but paint, accessories, etc can all be changed.
Hey, would that new chalk paint work on the stairs?
Everyone seems to love it!
I might darken the stain a little too…
I guess I would have to replace/remove the carpet…
Oh, and convince my husband…
That’s the hard part!
