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.
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.
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.
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.
