Neutral Cottage-Style Foyer With Board-and-Batten Walls
Soft taupe paneled walls and a neutral, traditional rug create a stylish entry in this casual, coastal home. The side table by the door provides an easy landing spot for keys, while the lamp on top means you never have to return home to a dark house. Board-and-batten-style walls add visual interest and texture to the space.
Bright teal walls greet guests in the foyer of the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Located in Jacksonville, Fla., the home has a coastal vibe, evident in the bold color choice. A built-in shelf with storage baskets makes it easy to stow flip flops and sunglasses, while mosaic tile stair risers add a beach-inspired vibe to the dark hardwood stairs.
