Having an appealing spot to drop coats, shoes and other accessories as you come in the door will keep your space looking organized. Here, a cozy bench is perfect for slipping on your shoes, a coat rack holds hats, jackets and more, and baskets underneath the bench are perfect for stowing away other items.
Magnificent Contemporary Shimmering Double Staircase With Matching Water Feature
A dramatic art glass chandelier sets the color scheme and draws the eye forward to the shimmering double staircase in this contemporary New Jersey home. Beyond the stairs, a water feature is set into a focal wall adorned with a metallic candy stripe.
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.
A custom black metal sign with a positive message greets guests in this entry space. A small black wood bench and floor lamp provide a cozy sitting area before entering the adjacent dining room and kitchen.
Functioning as a foyer, this enclosed front porch sets the tone for the home. Sage green walls and linen curtains create a soft atmosphere, while neutral rugs define the two areas: the lounge area and the mudroom area.
Classic Traditional White Foyer With Spiral Staircase
Capiz mosaic tile shimmers on the stair risers, adding a coastal look to this traditional foyer. White paneling and a crystal chandelier give the space a classic elegance. Wrought iron balustrades echo the Mediterranean style of the exterior.
Green patterned walls, a graceful chandelier and framed artwork ensure this traditional foyer is anything but boring. A lovely beige settee offers sophisticated seating, and a classic wood staircase leads upstairs.
