If you spend any time at all shopping in consignment stores or browsing tag sales, you know that it’s pretty easy to find vintage dressers at great prices. While you may not need another dresser in your bedroom, a low profile dresser with drawers has lots of potential to add style and function to your home.
The great thing about these dressers, in addition to their low price, is their versatility. Since they are made of wood, they are easy to sand and paint, whether your style sensibilities cry out for the purity of shabby chic white or a glossy shade of jade green to go with Asian fusion style. So rather than pass by yet another ubiquitous vintage dresser, consider these fun and practical ideas.
One area of the home that can set the tone for the rest of your decor is the foyer. The foyer also sets the expectation of guests that enter your home in regards to what they might see in the rest of the home. This makes the foyer a very powerful space, and one that must be decorated with lots of consideration. You want to make the best impression on your guests, and the way that you outfit your foyer can help you do just that. The foyer can become a memorable spot in the home when you follow the tips below.
Coordinate the Foyer with the Remainder of the Home
Select furniture and accessories for the foyer that coordinate with and match the rooms that are adjacent to the foyer. For instance, if you have Victorian-styled furniture in the living room, then selecting a Victorian-styled table for the foyer is a good choice. By giving the guests to your home a sense of the home’s decorative style in the foyer, you set the tone for what they can look forward to as they venture further within.
