Wit & Whimsy: Foyer Troubles

Readers, I need your help!

We have a sad little foyer.  It is sad because it is tiny, has a closet, and that's about it.  There is virtually no wall space in there, so I've decided to something about it...

I am going to paint a painting of a pretty foyer to put in our foyer.  People will see it and say, "What a pretty foyer!" And then they will associate the "fake" foyer with our foyer.  They will tell everyone, "The Treleavens have the prettiest foyer!"  :/  {Do you really think this will work?}

So here are the three choices, and I want you to vote for your favorite foyer in the poll on the sidebar:


Pretty Bannister



French Chair



Grecian Mirror


What do you think?  I bought an 18" X 24" gessoed panel that won't be framed for the painting. I have my favorite, but I am curious to read your thoughts.

I appreciate your input!

Until next time...

Blessings!
Ricki Jill

  2. REALLY hard choice, I like 1 and 2, but the pop of color from the flowers in 1 I think is what makes it the better choice!

  5. From an artistic point of view, I also vote for the banister. The cool color on the banister stands out from the warm color in the background and of course, those pink flowers!

  10. You need to mix this up. I like the banister in no. 1, the table in no. 2 and the painting and flower in no. 3.

  11. well how do I choose.
    I think I love the french chair simple is nice
    the others are very spring-y and I am just more in an Autumn winter mood which the french chair reflects more of.
    Gosh I don't know, the last painting you just showed is very similar to the other two choices in flowers and color.
    I would say you are leaning towards the Pretty Banister :)

  16. That sounds like my foyer at the lake but add a lovely HVAC exchange :) I'd want #1 hanging in mine!

  19. I'll vote on your sidebar but I wanted to tell you that hands down, my choice is French Chair! I adore it. Can't wait to see what you decide!

  20. Hi Ricki Jill, I like #1 and #2. I have an entry that's a cubicle with a closet lol, I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. I like your idea.

  21. It's worth a try, and I know your painting will be beautiful!

  22. All are beautiful and I am sure you will do a wonderful job, but I think #1 or #3 would be fun to paint due to the shading. I love painting or drawing fabric like #1 and the little table in #3 would be fun to show the dimensions.

  23. Oh I vote for number 1 the bannister. It is o pretty!

  24. To me, pretty banister seems most like you. I love the vase with what looks like peonies(one of my favorite flowers also, especially that pink), the table and the wire basket. Although the banister itself is not my style, I think it looks beautiful and interesting with all the other elements. I also like seeing the window and the fabric draped to the side of the table. Whichever you choose, I'm sure that everyone will say that you DO have the prettiest foyer!

  27. The 3rd one is beautiful, but the 1st is more "foyer", to me....the design of the stairs, and the airiness of it just strikes me as beautiful. And great idea, by the by!

  28. Brilliant idea. I like number one the best.
