Though her clients downsized to a smaller home near their children's school, designer Robin LaMonte managed to give the family a formal entry using a beautiful wood sideboard and a chic chandelier. Two watercolor paintings add subtle color to the walls, while Daisy the dog waits to greet visitors.
Transitional Basement Bar With Built-In Wine Storage
The basement bar uses space that would otherwise be empty square footage. A custom bar aligns with the stair treads and is the same wood and finish as the steps. A dark charcoal wall is a complementary accent to the light gray paint. Glass subway tile adds a simple pattern to the space and open shelving keeps bottles organized and accessible.
Neutral Foyer With Sparking Chandelier & Brown Bench
Gradations of monochrome interwoven with splashes of gold, pattern and texture dress up this foyer on display in the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. A modular bench keeps a low profile beneath a sparking chandelier, while making room for guests in the entryway.
The same coral paint used in this entryway carries on throughout the great room, making all areas work cohesively. The white wainscoting helps tone down the saturation of the coral while also protecting the walls from everyday wear and tear in and out of the front door.
Four plush armchairs provide comfortable seating in the freshly updated sunroom. The vaulted ceiling is a gorgeous detail that adds great height and contrast to the space. There's even a place to work thanks to the elongated, built-in desk.
This sunny stairwell gets its distinction both from its big picture window and its unique, coral-inspired chandelier. The hardwood landing is decorated with a graphic rug in a bold yellow that complements the colors used throughout the house.
This foyer boasts rich black walls and bright white trim, creating immediate eye-catching contrast upon entering this home. A beautiful chandelier illuminates the entryway, lending an air of elegance to the space.
Contemporary Landscape Art Defines Living Room Entryway
Sublime sophistication perfectly describes this living room designed by Ana Donohue. For the entryway, Donohue chose unexpected pieces that all work together to anchor the space. A muted canvas hung casually atop a console table with wooden tusks indicates a strong but delicate sensibility that is carried throughout the rest of the space.
