A serene black and white color scheme sets the mood for this luxurious classical entryway. Intricate ceiling detail, a stunning chandelier, delicate archways and a grand staircase complete the look, giving this entryway an overall elegant finish.
During the renovation of a home in Greenwich, Conn., Anthony DeRosa of DeRosa Builders was able to incorporate a wet bar into the design of the family room without adding on or stealing space from the seating area. “We fit the bar into a little-used closet,” says DeRosa. “We had cabinets custom built for the space. The biggest challenge was finding a sink small enough to fit within the tight dimensions.” Mission, accomplished.
Color makes such a difference: The print of this foyer's floral wallpaper is traditional enough, but in black and white it looks so fresh and exciting. The black front door continues the color scheme to the exterior.
