CHIC GLAM FOYER by Splendor Styling

Welcome to Splendor!

I'm very happy to finally share this space with you. The One Room Challenge is a brilliant initiative of Linda from Calling it Home, where 20 bloggers transform a space in only 6 weeks - and everyone can follow along! The creativity and support around it are absolute invaluable! This is my second time participating and I couldn't be happier with the results.

You can see the detail of my progress here, and some before photos that show the huge change in this tiny area. I believe that living in a small space should not be an impediment for living in big style! The entryway gives a first glance of your home's personality, and I definitely wanted this one to be GLAM! 

I fell in love with this wallpaper as soon as I saw it online, and even though I was nervous about using it I totally changed my mind when I got the sample. Black and gold is one of my favorite combinations and this one added the perfect amount of glam femininity to the space. To balance it - and avoid giving hubby a heart attack - I decided to go with a very masculine console table with hairpin legs and a black leather equestrian mirror. Looking for the right pieces was a big challenge due to the size of the space, so I decided to contact small manufacturers on Etsy. I had THE BEST experience working with them and got custom and hand-made amazing pieces! I can't thank enough Garrett and Dendro Co for their excellent service.

For accessories I needed to go glam again. I incorporated some texture with a fab marble lamp; and some serious gold with these bull brass hooks by Jonathan Adler. And of course, I placed a faux-fur sheep skin rug for extra coziness. This little space is now functional and gorgeous; AND it's the best spot to place flowers to welcome you home. Oh... and the DIY project I tried. It didn't work as planned so I skipped it. 

What do you think?! :) I always love reading your comments and ideas. If you are changing a space at your place and need some help, send me a message or take a look at my services page. I would love to be part of your project!

Thanks so much for passing by! Stay in touch, and stay inspired! xx.
