The beautiful foyer of the HGTV Dream Home 2014, a vacation getaway located in Truckee, Calif., minutes away from Lake Tahoe boasts this rustic pine wood front door as an entryway into the vacation home. The light wood offers a striking visual contrast to the cool gray slate tile of the floor.
Lively wall hangings and a bright green and white patterned area rug greet guests the moment they set foot in this neutral entryway. A wooden front door adds a rustic touch, while an antique white dresser acts as a table for decorative vases and a lamp.
This charming country home was first built in the 16th century on the site of a farmhouse that served Netley Abbey all the way back in the 13th century. Some of the home's wonderful details are thought to come from the Abbey itself, including the front door, stonework and a mullioned window in the drawing room.
The clean, simple lines of the architecture and furniture, including a stately wood front door and rectangular console table, keep this foyer stylish and elegant. Soft yellow walls brighten the transitional space.
