This modern home boasts two entrances. On the right side of the home, a walkway leads up to an elegant front entrance that guests will use upon their arrival. On the left, a car port allows the homeowners a safe, dry place to park their vehicles, and also offers them their own private entrance to their home.
Inside the home's front flowerbeds, designers added copper plated, raised planters that house Japanese maple trees that stand sentry on either side of the home's front entrance, adding height and dimension to the outdoor design.
When guests come through the home's front door, they are greeted by a calming, light blue foyer that mirrors the peaceful surroundings of the home. Closets on either side of the entryway add storage to the space, providing easy access to coats and shoes, while a bench and work of art are elegantly framed by the doorway of the foyer, creating a focal point in the space.
Although this entryway is small, it has personality to spare. The side wall covered with a topiary-print, crisp white door and white trim are highlighted by a saturated navy paint. The mix of dark and light tones add depth, tricking the eye to thinking the foyer feel much larger.
An obtrusive utility closet, just inside the front entrance, was removed to facilitate the creation of a welcoming foyer that flows naturally into the main living area. A soft, gray tufted sofa, high-backed wooden bench, chandelier and exposed beam vaulted ceilings all add to the inviting vibe of the space.
A large box in shape and appearance, the foyer is designed to connect the home's public and private wings. The foyer's far wall is framed out with painted pine trim. Inside each 34-inch square lies a panel of corrugated steel, a rustic building material that finds a new sleek, sophisticated interior application.
