The finish line is near, and I’m ready for it. Well except for the fact that I’m making a crazy little adjustment to my plans… more on that later. Today I’m sharing the perfect modern, neutral details to complete a room.
Finishing details and staging can make the room feel complete and “designed.” So, this week, I shopped and ordered for the perfect neutral, elegant details to complete the foyer. I found an amazing lamp, as well as some gorgeous bone frames and other details to bring the space together.
I kept track of my favorite finds while I shopped and linked all of the details on my Like to Know It page, as well as below. Keep in mind these are affiliate links. If you choose to click and buy something, I might get a small commission, which goes toward keeping this little blog going. So many of these would make amazing gifts too!
Now to the CHANGES…
I couldn’t help feeling that the design needed more “oomph,” especially when I decided to go with a natural finish on the buffet. Then, I saw the image below on on Instagram.
The white walls feel fresh with the gray accents. Here’s another inspiration from Better Homes & Garden’s Pinterest page.
So, guess what I’m doing this week? Yep, painting walls, ceiling, and doors. I know, it’s crazy. And I do not love painting.
Thankfully Mr. Bayou has given me the go-ahead. I was worried he’d veto dark ceilings. I am leaning toward Urbane Bronze from SW for the door and Anonymous for the ceilings, but I’ll let you know the final details. Because I have so much brown in my home, I need a gray with a lot of warmth. The walls will be BM Dove Wing, like the rest of my house. My trim is BM White Dove.
I’m not going to post a pic this week, because I want the reveal to be a surprise, but you’ll see a few sneak peaks on my Instagram page.
What’s left? Paint all the things and stage the room for a killer photo.
