We have this little nook by our stairs. I wasn't sure what to do with it. My mom was here this past weekend and we found this bench at TJ Maxx. (The closest Home Goods is over an hour away.. what is a girl to do?) I bought fabric to replace this strip, however once we got it in position we thought it looked great as is! We bought the pillows at Pottery Barn. I'm still trying to decide if I want to do all one color or keep the three different colors.
Across from this bench is another cut out in the foyer. This was easy to fill with items I already owned. The builder did a great job at centering the door bell. (HA HA!) My dad and brother hung my gigantic mirror while they were here. I assure you Jason is thrilled he didn't have to do it. Our ceilings are really high and I'm not sure you can tell that from the photos.
I'll post more as I finish.
