Gorgeous Eclectic-Boho Style Foyer

Well hello there loves, I know it's been a while since my last blog post. 
Honestly I just haven't really been in the creative mood lately. 
I even skipped Easter decorating this year! 
A whole new low for me ... lol

But I did manage to re-decorate our entry a bit in the style I drool 
over these days "ECLECTIC -SCANDI - BOHO - MOROCCAN" 
and whatewahhhhh else you might call it! 

Let me share with you...

I re-decorated the entry with a few new items I got recently. 
(Item source list provided at the end of this post).

I figured for a true scandi-boho look one needs to have a pet cow scull, right? 
I know some of you peeps might disagree with an animal scull, but like I 
keep saying "I already ate the cow" so this is considered re-cycling, right

I wrapped my cow scull in some gorgeous new Moroccan string-lights, 
do you dig them as much as I do? (More details on those at the bottom of this post).


The pom pom throw is my absolute favorite at the moment, 
wish I had more of those!

 More Moroccan string-lights here....

Here you see the entire entry wall,  I started creating a little 
gallery wall above the staircase, still a work in progress.

The BOHO letters are a gift from my best friend Michi in Bavaria. 
She recently took a trip to Bali and got me these letters along with 
another gorgeous gift I will share in another post.

And here is how our son re-decorates when I am not looking....
HOBO instead of BOHO? Too cute!

OK, as promised here is the scoop on the Moroccan string-lights, 
I found them on AMAZON, love them but from far away they 
reminded me of Christmas, so I decided to give them a coat of paint.

 So Annie Sloan chalk paint to the rescue, I used French Linen. Took a while to cover them with a little brush, but totally worth it.

 Sooo much better, don't you think?

 O.k. so as promised let me give you a source list for some of the items used here:

  1. A nice area.... lots of interesting items and it all works together.

  2. I WANT that teardrop lamp and went to the link but can't find how tall it is? Can you tell me? The whole arrangement looks fabulous!

  3. I always enjoy seeing how you decorate your entry. This is a very interesting and pleasing look - great combination of internationally appealing decor!

  4. Oh my. This is so cute! My favorite? (hard to choose....) the shadows that the lamp casts! I never would have considered that lamp, but oh my those shadows have sold me on it.
    I love everything about your entry.

    1. Oh, I forgot to tell you..... I have been seeing everyone with a skull somewhere in their decorating this year and the other day, we were at a restaurant and my husband remarked that he liked the skull they had hanging on the wall. So, I told him how popular they are right now and that if he'd finish mounting his beaver skull, I'd use it in our house. He saw a beaver get hit by a car one day and he went back to get it later. But when he got it, the skull had been crushed by the car. So he considered it his purpose in life to put that puzzle back together. :)

  5. Love, love love your styled foyer. Yes, I like the lights painted you can see them better against the wall. Pinning & sharing. Thanks for joining the Inspiration Spotlight party @DearCreatives hope to see you again soon. Love your blog btw.

  6. I like the layers and mixture of textures that you include in your foyer. Several items are unique and would be real conversation-starters for guests who see the arrangement as they enter your home. It's interesting and attractive.
