A blue Oriental rug brings warmth and a subdued pop of color to this all-white entry. Blue-and-white stamped tile step risers echo the rug's color palette and give the entry a coastal, Mediterranean look. Plants add color, texture and natural elements to enliven the space.
The turquoise front door opens into a bright airy foyer and stair space. This space sets the tone for the modern coastal style of the home. Thanks to wood paddles for wall decor, white shiplap walls and ceilings, a simple black railing and three brass, coastal-feel light fixtures, there is a definite beachy vibe when you first walk in.
Smooth slabs of limestone appear to float towards the home's main entrance, where two brick retaining walls frame a large, blue-painted orb. With clean lines, plants all around and a pop of color, this contemporary entry is a perfect look at what's to come next.
Increase safe passage in public areas of a garden by installing lighting. Beautiful stair rails feature a leaf motif. The railings appear to have sprouted from the ground and blend beauty with function, making the pathway safe and inviting. The garden design was very specific on circles and center points, requiring dutiful attention to axis points and perfect radii.
The entrance to the home exudes elegance. An arched mahogany front door matches with the hardwood floor and winding staircase. A pair of candelabra chandeliers and a piano nestled in the corner completes the timeless design.
By simply changing the millwork, this entry and stair space got a huge refresh. Shiplap walls greet visitors to an immediate ‘by the water’ feel. That combined with the watery painting featuring bold turquoises and greens (that reminded designers of lily pads) drives home the coastal feel. A LED light in the glass ball on the newel post is set to a photocell - so it comes on each night when it gets dark!
This statement entryway was designed with the architectural lines of the home in mind. The landscaping creates a cascade of stone levels leading to the front door, complete with large over-sized planters and shrubs.
The interior of the home proves to be just as interesting as the exterior, with large archways and light fixtures that feel like they're right out of Morocco. Colorful tile lines the stairs and draws the eye to the second level.
