Monday Inspiration: Decorating my Entry table

This morning I've got foyers on the brain. If you read my weekend post you know why. #1 on my 10 Day Challenge list is styling my entry table.
If you didn't see it, here's a link, so that you can [point and laugh] know what I'm referring to here. I know. Sad. I repainted my table a couple months ago and I managed to style it for my blog photo, which was alright... but there was a problem. Almost everything was taken from another spot in my home, so when I returned it all I was left with... leftovers. Sooooo, it's time to finish what I started and create a welcoming entry for our home [because a sad left-over-blog-photo-shoot table doesn't say "welcome" does it?!]. Here are a few foyer pictures that I found [in my favorite spot.. House Beautiful] to inspire me:
This entry is so calm, but still super stylish and fun. I do wonder, though- was that chair thrown in for the photo shoot or is it always there? I'd whack my toe on it every time I walked by if I had a chair sticking-out into the hallway like that...


I love the scale of this entry table-scape. I have alot of height to work with, but not alot of width, so this is very appropriate for my space [but I won't be mirroring the same table on the opposite wall... I have a foyer, not a grand entrance!].I love the inter-play of traditional and contemporary styles here. In my opinion this is eclectic done right... mixing totally contemporary items/colors with strictly traditional items makes both feel fresh and fun. I don't see myself going pink... but I do love this foyer!
Alright... so now I have my inspiration [from people with lots of $$$], now it's time to go see what I can do with a tiny bit of $ lots of inspiration!!
