Black-and-white tile laid in a harlequin pattern creates striking contrast underfoot. Wainscoting brings a traditional element to the space, while abstract art and sleek sconces nod to the contemporary.
The stylish entry creates the perfect first impression for HGTV Smart Home 2019 in Dallas, Texas. A geometric porcelain tile design inset within the white oak hardwood floor packs a visual punch, Old World-style chandeliers illuminate the space from above, and custom framed black and white photography captures images of the local area.
In the hallway, Ginger filled woven baskets and wood crates with found objects like pine cones, wooden beads and black packages to connect the design in this space to that in her living room. Then, she hung a Chrstmas banner and set out a Christmas pillow to complete the vision.
This eclectic entryway features bold black and white stripes on the walls, a Victorian gilded mirror, antique wall-mounted lighting and a glass table seated on repurposed molding. Mismatched frames and a rustic wooden bowl create an inviting personality in the space.
A huge arched mirror mimics a window and makes this dramatic foyer feel even bigger. The floors are chevron-cut porcelain; their look is polished, but they're also easy to clean, a win win in a home with kids.
In the foyer, black and white zebra striped benches and black and white art illuminated by black sconces help to create a statement when guest first enter the home, setting the tone for the rest of the home's spaces.
