1 + 4 = Inspired: Welcoming 2011

A fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning, I am always motivated to clean house (after taking down the holiday decorations and tree) and freshen/change things up as soon as January rolls in. What better way to welcome the new year into your home than right inside the front door? 

Today's "1 + 4 = Inspired" post begins with a large, open foyer outfitted to be both functional and stylish, with an upholstered settee, rug, mirror, umbrella stand and coat hooks.  Here are my three takes:

1)This foyer would knock your socks off at hello with the fabulous settee and simple color scheme.  And how about that owl?!
Vivid Blue Welcome

2) Bring in a bit of the 2011 Color of the Year, Honeysuckle, to let the world know how how tuned in you are.  The fresh look, clean lines and bright color combination are a new twist on preppy!

3) Finally, a welcome that spares nothing in the "wow department" from the black and white color scheme to the bold rug and graphic shapes and lines.  Talk about a way to make a first impression.

How would you pull this foyer together using the 5 items mentioned at the beginning of the post?  Do share! 

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me.
