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.
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.
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.
Large, shallow stone stairs transition from the sidewalk to the entry of this enchanting Italian style home. The light neutral exterior is beautifully complimented with rich wood details like the entry gate, front door and garage door. Shrubs, trees and grass add lush, natural color and create levels in the landscaping.
The Capitol Hill Residence stair is centrally located in the light filled entry hall. Overhead is a sloping translucent roof that fills the core of the house with daylight. In order to maintain the function of this space, the stair needed to allow light to pass though it and filter all the way into the basement. In addition, we wanted to maintain a visual lightness to the stair through the use of materials and a simple, yet elegant form.
