A fieldstone wall continues from the exterior of this contemporary California home to the interior foyer, literally bringing the outside in. The 24-inch walls are built from stones gathered on the site, embracing the home's wine country setting and fulfilling the owners' desire for indoor-outdoor living.
Wood French doors invite guests inside this beautiful foyer. A large chandelier gives off a warm glow above a rug with gray and purple tones. A tufted purple bench pulls out the violet hue from the rug for an elegant and subtle accent color.
This lovely foyer provides access to the dining room or to a staircase leading upstairs. Neutral-colored tile floors are not only beautiful, but they're also functional in that they hide dirt well and are easy to clean.
The side of this white stairway is as important as the front, thanks to the lovely snail-shell carving at the end of each step. Classic wallpaper over the French doors adds further visual entrance to this entryway.
