Shedding New Light in the Foyer

After rearranging our living room . . . we wanted to add a little light to the foyer. We have pot lights installed but something that hangs down into the space would be ideal. I always loved these Allan and Roth lights from Lowes. When I saw them installed in a friends new home, and they looked so amazing, I had to pick one up for our manor. They come with amazing Edison light bulbs . . . but the orangey glow was a bit too much for our little entrance so we swapped it out for an incandescent bulb, but have a couple of those fancy shaped florescent bulbs (plumen) on order (they are green and stylish).

We used a pot light converter kit. It was really easy. All the instructions are in the package it was simple.
Next, if you follow us on Instagram you would have caught my recent photos from a trip to Homesense. I shared a driftwood wreath I purchased. I was finally able to get it up and on the door. I've been looking for a summer wreath but wanted to stay away from silk flowers this year. Driftwood was perfect!
Lastly we need to add another plant to the front foyer, because our old piece lily (seen in our house tour) is way way way too big now, and I am also thinking of adding display rails to hold pictures or mail, but of course I will post about it when it happens.


  1. love the wreath. I picked up the same wreath for our front door a few weeks back here in the maritimes. That light is absolutely dreamy.

  2. Your new light fixture is so pretty and looks great in your entry. I love your pretty front door with the boards and the wreath is perfect.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Love the new light fixture! And those wreaths are some of my fave


  4. Love the changes! What colour is your front door if you don't mind sharing!

  5. Looks great! Where is this at in your home? You still have that amazing glass paneled door right?? :)

  6. I love that light! In fact I bought one too with the idea of putting a Plumen bulb in it, but alas, the bulb will not fit through the glass globe. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :( Hopefully you can use it in another part of your amazing manor.

  7. Love the light, love the wreath! I want to visit the Manor!


  8. Oooooh Home Sense you say? I'm heading there to get that wreath!!! As for your light ...... I love and yes, it does add interest to your foyer.

  9. I LOVE that light. Did you get it in the States because I checked online at Lowes Canada and they don't have it. Can't wait to see your office!

  10. where did you get your potlot converter kit? all we can find is the ones that you twist a light bulb socket sorta thing in. and i have an amazing chandy that i want over my sink but need a converter.

  11. I picked that light out for our entryway but alas the hubs over ruled me for a smaller one. I tried to convince him to go big and go in our home but no dice. It looks amazing!

  12. Oh my goodness. I love your wreath! :o)
    Wish we had Homesense in the U.S.


We're here to lend an ear,
