Plans for redecorating the Foyer

March and April were super busy months. So instead of going on vacation during spring break we decided to tackle our to do list. We did a lot of  planning and preparing, so our home improvement projects would go smoothly. In March of last year I was vacationing in beautiful Honolulu Hawaii. As I was preparing this post I was reminiscing about the spectacular Hawaiian scenery. The color of the water, sky and sand were absolutely AMAZING! And the orange glow of the sunsets were breathtaking. I loved Hawaii and I knew that I could get used to being an Island girl, but that wasn't happening. So when the time came for me to redecorate my foyer I decided if I can't go to the island; I would bring the island to me. So the first thing I did was shop my house for pieces that I could use in the design. I decided I would meld the styles that I liked together; which happen to be African, Asian, and Indian, with splashes of tropical décor. I think this will give my foyer/home an Island feel. Whose with me? Below are some of the pieces that made the cut.
