FOYER // Before & After
I’m dying!!! Did you know: bigger furniture can actually make a room look more spacious!? Seems like Opposite Day, but it’s true.
I love this antique dry sink of ours, but it felt diminutive in the room. With tall ceilings and a big space, it felt shrunken down and dark to boot.
I drive by Three Swallows on Broad almost daily and they hadn’t been open, but I emailed them and they opened up for me! I had seen some gorgeous antique elm chests, consoles and sideboards in seat for a dresser, so remembered the surprising naked, pared-down style of Asian antiques. And I fell in love.
This yellow table has a spectacular patina, which plays off our beloved Indian, a trim silhouette, and opens up the space dramatically. Love!
