During the dining room renovation, a blue Dutch door was installed on the main entrance to the backyard. One of the finishing touches on the home were the exterior steps connecting the space to the backyard.
Stair-riser lights in a bronze finish were used for the stairs that lead up to the home's side door that opens to the laundry room and mudroom inside. “It’s a private entrance for the house just off the garage that allows you to just come in, take your shoes off, head out back and do any type of wet sport you want without having to come in and out of the actual more formal spaces in the house,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
Looking from the great room towards the front door of the home, this view highlights the staircase that leads up to the second floor of the home. This view also shows the pair of modern cowhide stools that add extra seating in the lounge area of the great room.
Pennsylvania bluestone treads are placed over Tennessee dry stack fieldstone for these patio steps. The wall and wall caps also are made of Tennessee fieldstone selected by Atlanta-based King Landscaping.
Measure and mark the space where you will be hanging the grids. You can find metal or plastic grids at your local home decor or hardware store (we found ours at Ikea). Decide on how many you would like to use based on the size and space you have available.
This entry joyfully foreshadows what's in store for our journey through the Blehm family home. We're immediately introduced to the family's four central themes: a love of art, bold colors, custom solutions and the use of classic black and white. When the foundation is understated, as is this entry's wallpaper, it creates an opportunity to layer on the fun. Angela worked with a local carpenter to design the statement making red lacquered cabinet. The door style was inspired by Angela's favorite ceramic planter and is in perfect harmony with the iron pickets on the staircase to the left. It is clear the paintings and accessories were all intentionally chosen and placed. The relationships between shapes, finishes and even the primary colors create a beautifully balanced entry vignette
