This historic home's front door is bordered by sidelights and a transom window, allowing maximum natural light into the foyer. Designer Tip: Provide seating in a foyer, such as this antique Windsor chair.
Dare to dream with this Brentwood home designed by Jackson Paige Interiors, beginning with its exterior--a unique beauty in blue and white. Rustic wood siding painted in baby blue, immediately call to mind a seaside resort, where one can while away the hours reading, relaxing and enjoying the view. The outside of this home offers a sneak peak to the colors found inside, with blue and purple playing their parts throughout the space.
Stacked stone walls, a wood planked ceiling and lantern sconces create a warm, welcoming front entry. Patterned glass on the sidelights and transom window gives the front door a distinct Craftsman look.
Steel, limestone, wood and concrete mingle on this exterior for a textural, contemporary look. A black framed French door with sidelights and a transom window makes up the front entrance. Modern lantern sconces flank the front door.
This spacious entryway features a stained wood farmhouse door beneath a row of upper windows and flanked by wide sidelights. A hall tree sits next to the door near a gray Oriental rug that covers the hardwood floor.
Two neutral sofas and a matching ottoman serve as a makeshift sectional. The ottoman can also stand alone for extra seating. French doors with black frames, sidelights and a transom window add a modern, industrial look to the space.
In the new dining room, existing windows were replaced with French doors and sidelights to bring lots of natural light into the space. Joanna added a statement chandelier, rustic wood dining table, and glass-front bookcase, also in the natural wood finish.
The earth-toned kitchen is designed to reflect nature's colors and blend the indoors and out. A pair of French doors with sidelights make up most of the east wall of the kitchen and bring in a dramatic amount of light. The doors open out to the backyard, which the homeowners use every day.
The home’s curb appeal was updated by installing a new entry door and sidelights; new windows, including an enlarged opening for the second-floor living room; new fiber cement siding for the upper level; and a new garage door. The designers focused on increasing transparency and accentuating the horizontal character of the simple form.
The front porch was designed to look like an extension to the home. The new stone terrace matches the brick on the home. The terrace is covered with copper roof and held up with 5 hand painted columns. The Moroccan decorative lights dance in the wind and invite guests into the home. It was finished off with a new wooden door and sidelights.
This creative storage space was designed by TriplePoint Design Build to accommodate books and living room knickknacks in the entryway of this remodeled home. The bookcases and columns, which were painted white to match to ceiling and trim of the home, divide the foyer from the living room. The size of the cubby space mirrors the sidelight cutouts above the front door for an interesting effect.

A new walkway was added to the street instead of having to come up the driveway. Heavy trim around the entry, garage door and new living room windows helped balance the façade.
