The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
As seen on Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna opened up the entry hall and added a functional custom bench with handy storage compartments. The bench was designed by carpenter and furniture artisan Clint Harp.
The home's entry doubles as a floor-to-ceiling art gallery packed with one-of-kind creations appealing to adults and kids. To keep purses and backpacks in one spot, wall hooks were installed among the featured art. A foyer table in matching blue provides an excellent surface for displaying family photos, intimate lighting, and accessories.
A stone dust entry drive leads into this narrow, waterfront lot.
The combination of an extremely narrow lot and a large amount of grade change made this a challenging lot to redevelop. The board form concrete retaining wall creates an architectural way to deal with the grade and to make the site inviting.
