Doctor's orders prevented the design team from using any wallpaper, paint or materials that contained high levels VOC. That means in places like this entryway, they turned to a painter who trained in Paris to create custom treatments. By layering an antique dresser and vintage art against the blue-and-white backdrop, the designers made the space feel carefully curated.
An antique mirror and a vintage cabinet get a second change to shine in this home outside of Los Angeles. While these pieces define the entryway, a circle purse and Louis Vuitton racket cover add a sophisticated, feminine touch to the space.
Oversized candles on a contrasting table, Eastern influenced pendant lighting, striking wood floors, a spiral staircase and decorative wool rug create an exciting entry point to this home demonstrating how the foyer – a most often forgotten home component – can create a great first impression.
A high-ceilinged foyer is surrounded by shiny metal beams and topped by a gridwork skylight that brings loads of natural light into this contemporary Reno home. Modern metal rails line the stairway and enclose the upstairs balcony, while bright vermillion walls give the space strong presence. A live tree in a mini-garden brings the outdoors in.
Awash in cheery color, this foyer tricks the eye by hanging a large painting of a room above the console. The bright palette of the artwork is picked up in the rug and striped accent pillow making the space itself a compelling still life.
The bold, black and white stair railing is a stunning focal point in this eclectic foyer. Bold blocks of color, from the blue door to the cherry red rug, pop against neutral tones in this sparsely furnished space.
Midcentury influenced lucite benches bring a whimsical texture to the foyer, while black and white wallpaper and a white console table add a geometric and symmetrical statement, creating a sleek and elegant entrance for visitors. An oriental rug brings balance to the room and the splash of red helps keep the flow grounded.
To really capture the row house's history, designer Kerra Michele Huerta left the brick raw and exposed in the entryway. A flight of stairs leads to the third floor, where the owner's bedroom and bathroom are located.
An Eastern influenced cabinet is a great and functional anchor point for storage and organization in this eclectic foyer. The spiral staircase with patterned carpet and dark wood railing is a striking way to introduce visitors to any home or business and contrasts warmly with a beautiful wood floor. Attention to detail – like an ornate sconce, decorative wool rug and fun oversized candles on a contrasting black table – makes the space immediately fun and inspiring.
Ornate, metallic pendent lights drawing influence from the Middle East work to create balance within the gravity of this foyer's spiral staircase. Setting a black railing against otherwise neutral tones pull the eye down to the exquisite wood floor.
The warm toned neutral walls work beautifully against the beige molding and light hardwood flooring. Multicolor abstract art canvases pop against the neutral color scheme and add an accent to the room over the light green upholstered bench. A gold greyhound statue is perched in the corner add a touch of personal style.
To create a welcoming entrance to the home, designers created a courtyard space that is landscaped with several varieties of tropical plants. These species line the walkway to the entrance of the home, where complementary greenery awaits guests once they enter the home's foyer, continuing the warm, inviting feel of the home's front entrance.
