Modern Rustic Fall Foyer

Hello All! It’s great to be back blogging again just in time for fall. And you know what that means – fall decorating and crafting (insert ear-to-ear grin).  Today, I’m excited to be sharing our fall foyer with you. It’s a little bit rustic and a little bit modern and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This year, I’ve been inspired by trends in modern prairie decor with its focus on ‘wild west’ themes that combine contemporary palettes with cabin + animal motifs. Hope you find something in it to inspire you as you get ready for fall.

Welcome!

For those of you who have been following the blog for a while now, you may remember that last year’s fall foyer seating area was simple and minimal. This year, however, I wanted to add some drama with contrasting colours – in this case, black, cream, grey and gold.

I also wanted more texture and depth. Layering is the gold standard when it comes to adding these elements to a space. But while some stylists love to load on the layers, I must admit that I am a minimalist at heart, often removing more than I add. If there is any style statement I subscribe to, it has to be Coco Chanel’s famous quote:  “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” Okay, so while I am no fashionista, this definitely describes my approach to decorating.

In order to add depth without overloading the space, therefore, I added – at minimum – one ‘layer’ per surface. In this case, a throw on one chair, a pillow on the other, and then lanterns and logs on the rug beneath. I love how it all came together!

Directly across from the main seating area is our sideboard, which also got a dose of prairie love.

And, finally, the last spot that received a little prairie love is just off the doorway. Here, I created this boho rustic birch branch vignette. It’s a great spot to sit and put on your shoes or boots.

The seat itself is woven with a Navajo inspired print. I absolutely adore it.

    Jelica, I really love this foyer. The pops of yellow, all that wonderful texture. It looks fantastic. Like a fun place you want to be at. I also have incorporated a bit of yellow in my living room. I find that it is a wonderful color for fall since it reminds us of the leaves.

      Thanks Mary! I seem to have fallen for mustard and loved incorporating it into my foyer. It’s definitely a great colour to use for fall and works well with all those lovely autumnal hues of the season. Take care!
