Two Story Foyer

TALL spaces are sometimes hard to decorate.
Our two story foyer was a challenge.
A lot of wall space.

What to do with it?

First I added a wide chair rail molding.
I place it on the wall about 2/3 of the way up the wall.

Below the chair rail I added wall paper.
It has alot of texture.

A piece of iron work was added near the front door.

This area had me stumped!
Such a large space.
It needed something.
I ordered the tapestry on line.
  It was the PERFECT addition.

I hired my drapery installer to hang the tapestry.

Don't you just Love Tassels?

This chandelier needed some shades.

Also how about some bling????

Large crystals were added.

A ceiling medallion and a cord cover were also added.

Now time to add some furniture and accessories.

I have had this painting in a few spots in my house. 
It's one of my favorites.

A dear friend  gave me this.
It hangs over my front door.

A grandfather clock chimes on the hour....

Did I mention I LOVE tassels?

If you have a tall space with a lot  of wall space,
try adding some of these elements....

I'll be linking up to the following....
