The ironwork is softened with traditional plants such as boxwood borders and fragrant evergreen plants like Rosemary, which gives a welcoming feeling and a sense of arrival to the front entry of the home. The front door is treated with Baroque seeded glass, which serves two purposes- to let light in and to create more of a sense of privacy than a clear glass would.
The entryway of this Hawaiian stunner features an arched doorway with an intricate, carved wood transom and iron-laced doors.

During the extensive renovation of this Hollywood penthouse condominium, the design team restored the doorway onto the balcony, as well as the original openwork columns and railings, creating a beautiful space to overlook the famed Chateau Marmont and surrounding Hollywood Hills.

Now, it's a relaxed, lovely and fully restored spot to unwind and enjoy the view.
This apartment is in a beautiful landmarked building in the Wall Street area. During its renovation, the designers strived for a modern feel but also wanted to pay homage to the Old World charm of the original building elements: massive windows, ornate ironwork furnaces and dark wood floors.
