A Parisian-inspired foyer

Parisian-inspired foyer

An elegant chair, round table, classic mirror, stacks and stacks of fashion magazines and a few edited objects greeted Scott and I when we entered the lobby of our hotel in Paris. I was immediately inspired.

Parisian foyer color inspiration

And meandering through Paris’ romantic streets, we stumbled across this little bistro, which led to my color scheme for a Parisian entryway I would create.

Parisian-inspired foyer final

My little entry starts with a curvy chair and a table that I would paint Cathedral Gray. I would opt to remove the top and replace it with a carrara marble remnant cut to size. Check your local stone manufacturer or distributor. The vintage gold mirror would be hung low, and I’d make simple chalkboard art (just paint glass frames with chalkboard spray paint) to prop on the table against the wall. On the table, I’d place a weathered gray lamp, a faux antiqued bust, a silver bell and an aquamarine Eiffel tower figurine. To light this lovely little vignette, I’d hang a gold French chandelier, of course.
