For Kerrick, this home is filled with memories. As a child, when it was a second home for him, and this entryway would be the first thing he’d see coming into the house and the last thing he’d encounter as he left. Now, with TaLaya’s help, the couple has brought new life to the small space. Light gray paint gives the entry an airy and relaxing feel, while a floating credenza adds storage as well as style. The entryway also serves as the starting point for the home’s love affair with African fabrics and patterns, a story told several times throughout the house. The drapes and rug are both designed in the Malian bogolanfini or mud cloth tradition, while the planter displays an ikat pattern similar to those seen in Indonesia or along the Ivory Coast.

The inset provided the perfect space for a thin desk, giving additional function to the extra square footage. Finally, a gilt, starburst mirror gives the area a little more texture and interest, while a red rug adds a splash of color.
