Transitional Entryway With Custom Skirted Console Table
The colors used on walls, floors and fabrics along with unique design details are the key to updating the look of a traditional home. The console in this entry is covered with a custom skirt that features grommets that look like nail heads. Nails and tacks are used on wood and metal, but they are an uncommon addition on fabric. Additionally, the band accent incorporates curves in its design detail instead of straight lines. The mirror above the console has beautifully proportioned divisions in a mullion-like configuration around its perimeter. This edging adds both dimension and interest to the mirror, mirror on the wall.
Home Exterior With White Siding, Wood Door With Glass Panels and Covered Porch Entry
A concrete sidewalk leads from the driveway to the covered porch entry of this home. Frosted glass stripes create an attractive modern door against the white horizontal siding. The dark roof creates contrast against the bright home.
The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
A sustainable Craftsman exterior with architectural details like tapered front columns showcases a modern take on the Arts and Crafts style. HardieShingle siding covers the body of the house, which is painted in Sherwin-Williams' Renwick Olive hue, while a stone walkway completes the classic Craftsman look for this home.
Arches covered in creeping fig vines lead to the back entry of this elegant home. A neutral stone patio provides timeless flooring without distracting from the beautiful architectural details of the walkway.
