Dress Up Your Design: Accessorize an Empty Entryway

Each month, a lucky reader wins accessories from Etsy.com to complete a room. For November's winner, Jonathan, style-maker Heather Armstrong selects the accessories and shares why she chose them to update this barren foyer.

Neutral and White Foyer Area

Before: Empty Foyer

Featuring beautiful architectural details, Jonathan's entryway needs a splash of color and accessories that add texture and interest to the space.

Before: Empty Foyer

To update the space, Heather says, \"From the pictures of the foyer and the other furniture I can see in the other rooms, I shopped for more traditional furnishings. The columns, the curve of the staircase, the art niches, these are all such traditional elements that I didn't want to get too quirky. The color scheme I chose is teal/seafoam and variations on the taupe color of the walls already there.\"

Etsy November Table Dress Up Your Design

Vintage Round Table

I'd nestle this table in the curved nook to the right of the staircase if you're looking at it straight on. That space needs something circular in shape, and the white of this table complements the molding in the room.
