The entryway of this home was designed to introduce guests to the color and texture they will find on the home's interior. From the stone exterior wall to the bright green plants that line the walkway to the copper colored front door and modern pendant lights to illuminate the home's entrance, color and texture create an inviting experience for guests and homeowners alike.
Brick pavers laid in a herringbone pattern create a tasteful, traditional and stylish porch that begs for summertime conversation over a glass of lemonade. Wide columns and a deep overhang give the porch presence and add curb appeal.
When guests arrive, they are greeted as anyone would be greeted into a home — without disruption and separation from a traditional host stand. Mailboxes and coat hooks are among the welcoming elements that put the guests at ease and set the tone for the rest of the open-kitchen experience.
