Hand-scraped mesquite flooring creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere upon entering the home's Mediterranean-style foyer. A staircase with an ornate wrought iron railing curves up the side of the room, drawing the eye up to the grand two-story ceiling.
For a homeowner with an art collecting passion, clean, neutral walls act as a gallery to show off bold works. The foyer's sleek, geometric console table fits in with the modern aesthetic and doesn't overpower the photograph hanging above it.
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.
Craftsman-Style Foyer With Rich Wood Tones and Brick Wall
This Craftsman-style foyer uses simple architectural elements such as a brick wall and rich wood tones to invoke a warm first impression. A charming built-in houses a plant, highlighted by a wooden-carved entryway mirror. A custom-made Delos area rug adds visual interest to the space.
Artistic Artwork and Textured Walls and Floor in Foyer
Upon entering the home, guests can see that the family loves modern art. The architecture of the home itself is an art form, with decorative arches that allow guests to see directly into the living room from the foyer. The floor and walls add texture to the space with their patterns and colors, while the family's sculptures are placed in sight for the family's and their guests' viewing pleasure.
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
