From the moment you step in the front door, designer Kristina Wolf played up the home's dominant Craftsman features. White interior columns and wide molding stand out against the powdery blue walls in the foyer.
The Craftsman-style home received a complete remodel, which improves circulation by creating a central hall from the entry door that leads to the main spaces of the house. The sweeping ceilings are 10 feet tall, and the hall is lined with rich paneled columns.
Hallway: Historic Prairie House in Riverside, Ill.
Leading the way to the second floor living area, a narrow hallway includes a low, built-in bookcase on one side to display art, books and personal treasures. The real show-stopper, though, is the vaulted ceiling with craftsman-style skylights to match the overall design of the space.
Craftsman Foyer With Wood Staircase Passing a Rich Wood Piano With Stained Glass Lamp
Hardwood flooring leads up to the wood staircase where the direction of the wood grain changes guiding the movement through the foyer space. A soft sea green wall color above the lower wall white paneling adds subtle color to the design. A rich wood piano is complimented with a stained glass lamp creating an inviting look.
Craftsman Staircase With Light Green Walls, Stained Glass Window Trim and Stained Glass Lantern Pendant Light
White two-column balusters guide the wood banister between decorative wood newel posts. Natural light over the pastel sea green walls and white window trim makes for a light space. A subtle stained glass trim on the windows compliments the gorgeous frosted stained glass finish of the singular pendant light hanging above.
Craftsman-Style Grand Foyer Hall With Stone Columns
This long hallway entrance connects the foyer to the great room. Craftsman-style sconces and drum shade pendant lights guide the way. Stone columns meet wooden ceiling beams down the length of the hall causing the eye to travel with them.
Built-ins on both sides of this craft room provide ample storage space for supplies, while a custom island in the center provides work space for projects. The pale green cabinets add a subtle splash of color without overwhelming the small room.
Sea Green Upstairs Staircase Hallway With Stained Glass Window Trim and Yellow Shaded Table Lamp On Wood Table
Sea green walls create a soft frame in the natural light of this staircase hallway. A warm yellow lampshade over the table lamp draws out the yellow coloring of the stain glass trim surrounding the windows. A wood table fills the space and provides support for a simple display to decorate the area.
Staying true to the craftsman style, the foyer features warm wood furnishings and wonderful architectural details, like the trio of windows above the console table. Reddish-brown tile is grounded by an area rug that adds color and interest to the space.
Craftsman Wet Bar With Frosted Glass Upper Cabinets
The beautiful, natural and neutral design of this Craftsman wet bar is organized and appealing. Frosted glass upper cabinets allow for easy glass storage, and a built-in cubby makes wine storage simple and accessible. The natural stone backsplash creates textural contrast against the polished black marble countertop.
Upstairs Foyer: Historic Prairie House in Riverside, Ill.
Gorgeous, craftsman-style skylights bring in warm, natural light to the upstairs foyer. A wall of low, built-in bookshelves store personal treasures, books and art as you make your way to the second floor living area.
Built-in Bookcases Incorporated Into Foyer Columns
This creative storage space was designed by TriplePoint Design Build to accommodate books and living room knickknacks in the entryway of this remodeled home. The bookcases and columns, which were painted white to match to ceiling and trim of the home, divide the foyer from the living room. The size of the cubby space mirrors the sidelight cutouts above the front door for an interesting effect.
Dark stained hardwood floors make for a warm welcoming entryway into this craftsman style home. The front door gets a modern update with glass panels set high on the door. Gray walls make a nice contrast with the white molding over the doorway to the next room.
