Cottage-style Neutral Foyer with Refinished Wood Floors
Removing the louvered windows above the shelves, and opening up the entry to the dining room, redefined the look and feel of this front room. Refinished wood floors and fresh paint in a warm gray help to both soften and brighten the room, that now serves as a large, contiguous entertaining space.
The rough metal legs and weather-wood top on this sofa table add a touch of industrial style to this entryway. The scraped hardwood floor adds more texture while the deep blue sofa and ikat curtains provide color and softness.
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.
To make this foyer as open and inviting as possible, walls were kept basic and neutral accented by delicate glass pendants. The space is anchored by a sturdy console table and mirror. Wall paint color: Sherwin-Williams Narce SW6154
The entry to this quaint Jamestown, Rhode Island, cottage is both charming and functional, with a built-in bench that's perfect for stopping to put on or take off shoes. Nautical-style light fixtures hang from the peaked, beamed ceiling. Copious white-painted woodwork fits with the bungalow's East Coast cottage style, giving the home a sense of place from the moment a visitor steps inside.
White Cottage Sunroom With Tan Wicker Furniture and Tile Floor
This cottage sunroom is fully surrounded with floor to ceiling windows. Tan wicker furniture decorates the room. Four chairs are placed around a circular glass table, a bigger armchair with ottoman is posted in the corner, and another sitting area is behind the glass covered coffee table. A darker wicker ceiling fan and light hangs next to the skylight.
Blue glass bottles make a unique and beautiful chandelier in this beach cottage's foyer, especially when lit by the sunshine pouring in from the high window. The aqua front door adds another fun splash of color.
A navy blue front door makes a colorful welcome in this home's foyer, especially when paired with the red walls of the adjacent dining room. A Roman shade lets down over the door's windows for more privacy.
HGTV's Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines turned this once bland laundry room into a colorful and inspiring craft room. Two bright yellow light fixtures illuminate a large craft table, made from an old pocket door. New blue-gray cabinets provide plenty of storage for the space, and an attractive sheet metal magnet board is a perfect place to display the kids' artwork.
This cottage is only 650 square feet—basically one large room with a bath and kitchenette off to the side. Instead of trying to work a sleeping area into the layout, the designer opted for a Murphy bed stored vertically within the wall, and hid it behind this oversized woven walnut door.
