To bring warmth to the foyer, designers combined vintage pieces of furniture with modern art. This makes the space welcoming, but also connects the design to that of the living room. Antique horses on either side of the door usher guests into the home.
Struck by the mathematical intricacies required to design the home which played host to the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, designer Candace Barnes chose to incorporate geometric shapes throughout the grand entry and staircase. Pyramidal shapes are repeated in the hand-blown crystal chandelier, Myke Reilly painting, bronze and granite table and the nailheads trimming the stairwell carpet.
In the foyer, a wall of windows from floor to ceiling brings in plenty of natural light making the home feel bright and open. Even with the large space, designers made the entrance of this home feel a little more intimate with simple, warm furniture that brings the home to life.
The clean, simple lines of the architecture and furniture, including a stately wood front door and rectangular console table, keep this foyer stylish and elegant. Soft yellow walls brighten the transitional space.
From the foyer, guests can walk through a large arch into the living room. Here, crisp white walls serve as the perfect backdrop for contemporary furniture, chic black accessories and colorful artwork.
