Wood, metal and stone elements are repeated throughout the HGTV Dream Home 2014 to emphasize its New Mountain architecture. Using those same materials in the entryway gives guests a preview of the style to come. Glass walls and windows are framed in a deep, rich shade of gray, lending a contemporary twist to the traditional mountain home style.
Double doors swing back to reveal the foyer which takes rustic style in a graceful direction: The ceilings are exposed wood slats and the chandelier and sconce feature single antlers painted black. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff
In the foyer of this cozy, yet spacious cabin retreat, a sliding barn door and wood-paneled walls introduce visitors to the home's rustic ambiance from the moment they step inside. A narrow niche houses a built-in bench, a perfect spot to perch and pull off your boots. Draperies dress the windows that flank the front door, and the panels draw to offer nighttime privacy. A wagon wheel-style chandelier adds sparkle while keeping with the cozy cabin feel.
When guests enter this mountain retreat in Beaver Creek, Colo., they're greeted by a rustic rock wall, stone tile flooring and an oversized black-and-white photo. A curvy entry table with a bold orange top adds a splash of color to the space, while a leather chair reflects the rustic style of the space.
A wooden sculpture atop a square wood pedestal just inside the door sets the tone for the mix of traditional mountain house pieces and modern accents in this updated take on a Lake Tahoe vacation home.
This two-story foyer features a volcanic stone clad wall which serves as a backdrop to a live edge walnut shelf. Above, the planter is finished with the home's original tongue-and-groove wood that once was on the ceiling.
