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.
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.
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.
This eclectic entryway features bold black and white stripes on the walls, a Victorian gilded mirror, antique wall-mounted lighting and a glass table seated on repurposed molding. Mismatched frames and a rustic wooden bowl create an inviting personality in the space.
To create the perfect, eclectic entryway to this home, designers started with the cool artwork and matched the bench, pillows and rug to its soft colors, creating the perfect warm welcome to anyone who enters the home.
Designers created a stand-out space in the entry with an architectural inset and unique wallpaper that elegantly and subtly contrasts with the rest of the home's white-washed walls. 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.
