And how is the weekend treating you so far? Me? I am just enjoying a lazy Sunday evening with a warm cup of coffee in "me" mood. Not a much coffee lover but when a teenager demands a coffee on a busy study schedule, mommy dear has to comfort with one. Thought to sip one for myself on this cold and dark (yes, it's already pitch black) evening. As said about this "me" time, I sense I have to get used to it being a mom of two grown up kids. Older one is looking out for universities this fall and middle school-er claim to be a big boy but is still a baby of the house! The younger they get, the older we feel. Though, I keep finding happiness and being busy in my own world - my home! I have always one or another corner to brighten. I keep something happening around myself what I enjoy doing the most!
Today I am inviting you at the foyer of my home. Throwing up once again my sweet little Neutral vignette inspired by the Winter. If your foyer is a big area or small, you have only that area to get or leave your first impression for your guests. The entrance deserves the attention not only to set the mood of your guest but it will give out the clue about what is yet to come.
After Christmas colors, felt like we needed something calm than chaos. So, I gathered up all I could around the house running up in my daughter's room and my basement (that is where all my decor items land if not using them) to assemble all similar pieces together.
Since Aj & I are an avid collectors of "Ganeshji", not only we get them home so often, we happen to have them as gifts repeatedly. This piece is one of my favorite one, out of all we have! It is a white Italian marble piece studded with "kundan" work with his little stand. Since it was all going to be neutral, these bright red and green colors were perfect.

Lord Ganesha is considered as a "Lord of Beginnings" and one of the most divine god, I bet you haven't find him only at my entrance, you have seen him smiling and glancing at us at many entrances.
The teapot vase is a new addition to my collection and matched perfectly with my grouping and added the much needed drama on the table.
Even though this is almost all neutral, there are bits of texture making it beautiful. Reed diffuser sticks and few potpourri are enough to refresh the entrance with their fragrance.

This is what it's dressed for now, but wait, I am not done. I want to share few previous looks of the same spot which I happen to clicked to share with you all.
|Again with all Brass Ganesha|

Hope you enjoyed my little corner of the foyer, and yes, don't forget to visit the artist of the house post for those beautiful paintings above the console table.
I never feel finished about decorating any corner, it is a continuous process in my home.
I hope you can steal some ideas from my creativity. Now, don't be shy, play around with your foyer with your taste. You will be amazed how your imagination will take its shape.
See you around and let me hear all about your entrance. Until we meet again, toodles!
