I did this inspiration board quite a while back featuring pieces from The Pink Pagoda. I am crazy about using green with blue and white - such a crisp, clean, and happy color palette.
I knew the major pieces of furniture and art I that I own that I wanted to use in the foyer, but something was missing. Then I came upon this Dana Gibson lighting fixture below and the whole thing came together in an instant. I have ordered this for the foyer.

Everything else will be repurposed from things I already have.
A pair of these massive antique blue and white calligraphy ginger jars on an antique black and gold Chinoiserie chest.
These Kate Spade Posy Vases.
This pair of mirrored blue and white Chinoiserie prints from my former dining room.
Well, this gives you a good idea of the foyer game plan. The foyer has a pair of French doors and a nice high ceiling. When you walk in, you are immediately faced with sliders all along the back and the gorgeous view of ancient palm trees. Very Old Florida. I wanted pops of green in the foyer to introduce the explosion of green outdoors.
I have ordered the Samplize paint samples and they are to arrive today. I will post about how they work out. I have a great High/Low post, paint color decisions, and a couple more things I need help with planned for the week. Please stay tuned.
Closing is two weeks from Wednesday. I am counting the minutes.
