Home Tour: Our Foyer

It's a new year and about darn time for a home update!  We have been pretty happy with how things look inside of our unit (I really owe you some current pictures of the living spaces), but our shared common area in the building was looking really shabby.  We have a small "home owner's association" of sorts composed of the five residents of our building. We all agreed that it was time for a little sprucing.

Please excuse the extreme yellowness.  Between the cream walls, yellow trim, and beige carpet, it's really a very yellow space.  Our plans are to paint the trim a crisp white, tear up the carpet, and give the staircase a painted makeover with black and white.  Here's one of our inspiration pictures.

Ahh much less yellow.  We will also be giving the walls a fresh coat of paint in a pretty neutral that my neighbor and I chose.  It's called Sail Cloth by Benjamin Moore. 

Oh and we have big plans for this dirty, worn carpet.  It's sort of a runner alternative that we're all really excited about.

This weekend, we put the first coat on the walls, but there is a lot left to do.  I will let you know when the project is complete with plenty of lovely after pictures and hopefully a tutorial.  Off to paint some more!
