Fabulous Foyers To Come Home To

We believe there’s a big difference between simply arriving at a party and making an entrance, and these homes prove that an entrance is not something you should ignore. From traditional and cozy to eclectic and glamorous, we rounded up our favorite foyers along with some of our own furniture to help you create a similar look in your home.

This foyer is fairly traditional, but a few eclectic and elegant pieces give it decidedly glamorous feel. For a similar look in your home, add our Marlena wall mirror for a touch of glam.

This light and airy entry is lovely with its neutral color palette and understated furniture. We think our vintage sideboard would give your entry a similar look for less!

Sometimes less is more, and a simple, low-key bench such as our Tahoe bench with some pretty indoor plants is all you need for a rustic yet chic foyer.

This elegant entry has a sophisticated contrast between the bright white walls, dark floors and tables, and hot pink rug. We think our reclaimed console table would create a sophisticated look in your entry!

Breathtaking walls, a gorgeous light fixture, fun mirror, and brightly colored settee create an entry that’s both whimsical and polished. Adding a bright piece of accent furniture, such as this floral chair, could help enliven your entry as well.

A unique item, such as an interesting bench, ethnic piece, or artwork, will make a room feel like it’s uniquely yours. This ethnic kilim bench upholstered with vintage fabric is a beautiful piece that will make your entryway sure to stand out and give it a unique, personal look.

Sometimes all you need are a few great accessories to really make a room (or outfit) shine, such as this Leona table lamp.

A comfortable colored accent chair is a great piece for a foyer so guests have a place to sit and relax when they come in (especially if they’ll be taking off their shoes). You’ll get bonus points if your chair matches the color of your door!

This dark, dramatic, and graphic foyer creates a showstopping introduction to this home. To create a little modern drama in your own foyer, this curved black console will do just the trick!

Getting In Touch With Your Animal Instincts

One of our favorite trends for fall is the fantastic use of animal prints in home decor.  Whether you have just a touch of leopard or a room full of zebra, going with your animal instincts and adding some furry prints to your home will give it a striking look you’ll love.

A single leopard print chair adds a fun element to this room!

The pair of zebra print ottomans create a trendy look in this otherwise more traditional home.

This photos proves that you CAN mix prints!

A hint of leopard looks lovely in this stylish sitting area.

Furniture Connexion’s animal patterned nesting tables are the perfect item to give your home just a dash of that safari style!

This study is seeing spots all over the place!

A little leopard, a little zebra, and you’re good to go!

Add a little zebra into YOUR home with our funky zebra print pillow!

Whimsical zebra wallpaper takes this room from conservative to eye-catching!

These leopard print stairs show that using animal print can also be very elegant and glamorous in large quantities.

The mix of animal prints and textures gives this bedroom a unique look.

We love this zebra bench tucked beneath the console in the foyer.

For a similar look, this zebra stool from Furniture Connexion is a great substitute!

We love a black, white and gray interior with this bright yellow pop and fun zebra hide rug.

Do you have any animal prints in your home?

Fall Interior Inspiration

Now that Labor Day is behind us, it’s time to start thinking ahead to the cooler fall months.  Although we are sad for summer to end, we are also excited for the change in seasons and what fall brings with it: Cozy textures, deep, warm colors, crisp air, and evenings with a fire going.  Scroll below to see some of our favorite photos that inspire us to get our homes ready for fall.

A deep orange duvet and decorative pillow make this bedroom seem even cozier.

Vivid jewel tones are a fall style staple.

Add some jewel tones with our Alexandra Sofa and Chair!

One of our favorite things we look forward to as the seasons get cooler: Entertaining! The stunning chandelier, lovely seasonal decorative accents, and perfectly set table are wonderful for the eyes, but make our stomachs growl too as we anticipate what food will be on the plates!

This is the ideal den with such a stylish chaise, wood paneling, and rich color palette.

The bright tangerine sofa and bouquet of yellow and orange flowers bring a lovely pop of color into the room.

Add a touch of tangerine with our Orange Leopard Pillow.

Plum walls, orange accents, soft lighting, and velvet texture make us ready to stay snuggled inside on those cool fall nights.

This fantastic fireplace is just BEGGING for a fire!

The wood accents, neutral hues, and fur accessories give this room a modern yet homey look.

Stunning burnt orange velvet chairs, a dazzling rug, and bold decor create a room perfect for fall.

This fall-inspired rug would make a great accent in your home!

Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t dine al fresco! Set up your table and chairs and bring some comfy pillows and a warm throw to enjoy an outdoor meal!

How do you get your home ready for fall?

Marvelous Metallics

Putting a metallic element into your home is a great way to add some glitz and glamour!  Whether your choose to go all out with multiple metallic items and surfaces, or if you want to be more subtle and just insert a single piece, here are some great photos for inspiration and a few suggested items to make your interior absolutely dazzling!

Our mirrored cabinet is the perfect accent piece for a bedroom, living room, or anywhere you’d like a little storage on the stylish side.

A screen and some decorative artwork and accessories bring a touch of bling to this work space.

Between the nightstand, pillow, and wall, we love the metallic details in this stylish bedroom!

We think it’s great to do something really glamorous where you’d least expect it.

This dining area really went for the gold and turned out stunning!

This petite accent chest is a lovely addition to your home with its adorable design and subtle silver finish.

This is the most striking kitchen we’ve ever seen!

Just a few metallic items can make a big statement.

We love the nearly all-white interior with the one area that has a brilliant gold and floral pattern.

This beautiful jewelry armoire is a darling way to store your precious metals!

A gilded frame takes this bedroom furniture from good to gorgeous.

This metallic foyer shows us how incredibly elegant silver and gold are, especially together!

Do you have metallic accents in your home?

Chic Children’s Rooms and Nurseries

We used to think of children’s rooms and nurseries as being cutesy rooms in shades of powdery pink or baby blue, but baby and kid’s rooms today proven otherwise.  With bright colors, glamorous accents, whimsical touches, sophisticated furniture, and inspiring patterns, these rooms make us wonder if maybe the kids have the most stylish rooms in the house!

We love the combination of the patterns on the rug and walls, and the unexpected color combination that surprisingly looks great and works well for either gender!

Rather than traditional pink, this warm coral and lavender color combination is feminine and sophisticated, and the elegant Murano chandelier gives it a touch of glam.

You might be doing a double-take looking at this one, but this is in fact a children’s den!  We love the contrast between the grown-up herringbone wood floors and dark walls with the orange and rainbow modern furniture and playful chandelier.

This room is so peaceful and stylish with the bright white palette with dark brown touches, vintage light, and eclectic accessories.  This adorable nursery would be perfect for a boy or a girl, and a lot of the items would work great in other rooms once it’s time to change the nursery into a more kid-friendly room.

We love the soft blue walls, fun patterned daybed, and cute green chair.  This room shows that blue definitely isn’t just for boys!

With the striped ceiling, modern mix of furniture, patterned hide rug and flokati hide, and contrasting black wall, this is one very hip kid’s room!

This darling room is perfect for an elegant little girl.  The light lavender is soft and pretty, but the pop of orange adds a fun and youthful element.

This has to be the most grown-up nursery we’ve seen, but it still looks like a fun, peaceful place for a baby.  This shows that you don’t have to buy all baby-specific items for a nursery for it to be an adorable room.

The multicolored striped walls in this playroom are so fun and add so much great energy!  The prints on the wall and comfortable white sofa coordinate perfectly.

How is your child’s bedroom or nursery decorated?

Happy Friday everyone!  To celebrate the end of the week and the beginning of August, we put together a lovely little post on adding green to your home.  This beautiful hue can be soft and subtle, deep and jewel-toned, or bright and vibrant.  No matter what shade it is, having some green elements in your home will breathe life into the space and add a welcome note of color.  Here are some inspiring images that show fun ways to incorporate a little green into your home:

10 Cozy Cabin Ideas

As much as we love trips to the beach, we are equally fond of trips to the mountains during the summer, especially with so many great destinations nearby. Being up in the fresh mountain air with clear skies and beautiful scenery is one of our favorite things about summer. Here are some inspiring images of cozy cabins with a unique twist, complete with tips to make your home feel a little more rustic as well.  One of the first things we suggest doing is to take a cue from the photo above and open up your home to warm summer breezes!  Make a comfy place to lay down, and try setting up a temporary canopy with some mosquito netting for a dreamy area to relax.

Being on vacation in a mountain setting is all about relaxation and having your home blend with the natural settings.  The same can apply to the interior!  A densely cushioned leather sofa, such as ours above, is a great choice when you want comfort and luxury combined.

We adore this covered dining area and how it’s enclosed enough that you can use indoor furniture even though it’s outside.  The fireplace makes the space especially inviting!  I love the idea of putting this reclaimed chest on a covered porch to use as a coffee table around some comfortable chairs.  Inside the chest you could store blankets to keep handy for chilly summer nights.

Think outside the box and try something different!  Because of the large beams in this airy cabin, the owners were able to hang a swing in their bedroom for a fun place to sit and sway inside.

The rustic dining area above is so warm and welcoming, it looks like the perfect place for a dinner party or family meal.  Our Tahoe dining set offers the same rustic appeal with the beautifully handcarved Sheesham wood construction and timeless design.

If you have the space and are a frequent entertainer, then we love the idea of having two (or in the photo above, maybe even three) sofas instead of the typical sofa and two chairs!  It allows for a lot more seating and is a great way to fill a large space.  Our Alexandra Sofa looks incredibly similar to the sofas pictured above to create that look at home!

Give your home a Navajo meets ethnic twist with some beautiful wool kilim throw pillows.

Give your bedroom a woodsy, homespun look with some heavier wood furniture.  Furniture Connexion’s solid Sheesham bedroom collection is an ideal choice!

A sectional sofa is a great way to make the most of your space, and our Burlington Sectional has a similar look to the pictured above for a comfortable but still sophisticated look.

Mixing in some wooden occasional chairs is a great way to add interest to your home.  This chair would look great inside, or on a screened porch as pictured above.

This rustic dining room is absolutely stunning with the high ceilings, massive beams, large chandelier, and dark stained bookcases.  If you need storage but don’t have built-ins like this house does, our sideboard is a great option. The glass panes allow you to display the items you’re storing, and the solid Sheesham handcrafted construction ensures that it’s not only attractive, but also durable and one-of-a-kind.
