LOVING this entryway designed by Janet Gridley. The combination of saturated blues in the wallpaper and high gloss ceramic foo dogs says WELCOME in such a bold, elegant way.
It’s also comforting to have the symbolic foo dogs protecting your entryway. In the Chinese tradition, they are placed in pairs — one is female, the other is male. The female represents yin, and symbolically protects the people dwelling inside the home, while the male statue, representing yang, protects the structure itself.
You can find lots of foo dog fun facts on Houzz.
Thank you Janet for the inspiration, I’ll be using my own set [a flea market find in Rome] as the centerpiece in my new and improved powder room.
