An eye-catching patterned bench offers an inviting place to sit in this contemporary entryway. The neutral palette is layered in dark colors, offset by a faint metallic sheen on the walls and the sleek chrome stair railing.
The unusual split level design allows this open concept home to feel far larger than its 2774 square feet. Low walls create sight lines all across the space and let natural light from the many windows fill the rooms.
To create a seamless, open foyer and camouflage the front and powder room doors, the walls in the entry of this apartment were covered with articulated wood panels with linear etchings. The beige accent wall matches the large photograph.
In the hallway and foyer, a few carefully chosen pieces decorate the space, but keeping items minimal helps maintain an uncluttered, airy feel. The black bannister visually bisects the area with a long, curving line.
Neutral Foyer With Sparking Chandelier & Brown Bench
Gradations of monochrome interwoven with splashes of gold, pattern and texture dress up this foyer on display in the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. A modular bench keeps a low profile beneath a sparking chandelier, while making room for guests in the entryway.
High ceilings give a loft-like, airy feel to this modern living room that features a serene white, gray and black palette. Touches of texture—a glass coffee table, a fur throw—add depth and visual interest to the sleek space.
