I just finished decorating our foyer for the holidays and LOVE how it turned! Here’s how I created an elegant holiday look with neutrals and metallics:

I hung two gorgeous preserved boxwood wreaths on the french door to my office. I love green colored accents and natural greenery! Boxwood wreaths are so elegant I think.
Decor tip: I used suction cup hooks that can be used on glass to hang the wreaths- they work really well since the wreaths are hefty in weight and they stay up all of December without falling down…. even when I open and close the door!
I added two beautiful birch forest pillows in shades of gray and white – they look like the birch trees in the woods behind our home!
I think they look so pretty with the birch branches in the tall vases that I keep in the foyer year round!
Decor tip: If you have a small foyer or no foyer at all think about adding a vase of branches like this – it doesn’t take up much space!
I set out a bowl of silver and gold sparkly, metallic Christmas balls – love their elegant shimmer and shine!
…and hung a branch that fell off a tree in our backyard last year…which I spray painted with my favorite metallic silver spray paint!
I also hung a few metallic Christmas balls from it using clear fishing line.
Next I filled my silver lanterns with mini silver and gold Christmas balls – the flameless candles are on timers so when the sun sets they come on and give off a gorgeous glow against the sparkly Christmas balls.
The last thing I did was hang 6 gorgeous sunburst mirrors which I picked up at HomeGoods/HomeSense. You can find similar ones here.
Decor tip: I used these velcro hanging strips to hang these mirrors – no nails required!
I hope you like my elegant and neutral Christmas foyer!

I love how you included so many design tips for your readers. The suction cup idea is genius!
Margot C says
That is so charming! My first thought for applying your principals to my homes is “gosh how would I keep that clean?’. Then I realized that I could do many of the same details and just leave the wooden bench that i have instead of your chairs.
Amy Jackson-Kincaid says
I love you foyer ideas…especially the chairs! Thanks for sharing!
