This coastal foyer at the HGTV Smart Home 2013 located in Jacksonville, FL features a stripe patterned wall and an anchor decor centerpiece. A pendant light highlights the blue and white color scheme. Lamps with flower-esque stands adorn the white credenza.
The turquoise front door opens into a bright airy foyer and stair space. This space sets the tone for the modern coastal style of the home. Thanks to wood paddles for wall decor, white shiplap walls and ceilings, a simple black railing and three brass, coastal-feel light fixtures, there is a definite beachy vibe when you first walk in.
By simply changing the millwork, this entry and stair space got a huge refresh. Shiplap walls greet visitors to an immediate ‘by the water’ feel. That combined with the watery painting featuring bold turquoises and greens (that reminded designers of lily pads) drives home the coastal feel. A LED light in the glass ball on the newel post is set to a photocell - so it comes on each night when it gets dark!
Just inside the front door, guests are greeted by an entryway packed with architectural detail, eclectic furnishings and a hint of nautical decor. Heavy iron sconces and caned armchairs pair with a vintage life preserver to create a dynamic juxtaposition that tops off the design.
Board and batten walls, coastal decor and glass lamps with linen lampshades give this beautiful foyer a casual, beachy vibe. The pared-down palette, consisting only of whitewashed walls and variegated hardwood floors, creates an effortlessly polished look.
Treated and stained driftwood stands on display as a sculptural piece of art that adds an organic textural element to this coastal modern foyer. A refurbished antique bench gets a bohemian update with indigo tie dye pillows. The photo of rippled sand calls to mind again the coastal inspiration for this space.
The open entryway of this Cape Cod-style waterfront home features whitewashed, paneled walls, a curving banister and a rattan console table that speaks to the home's casual, coastal mood. Pale hardwood floors and a neutral carpet runner on the stairway combine with the white walls and trim to create a clean, crisp, neutral backdrop that's both restful and stylish.
The white paneling throughout this home's main floor interior is a subtle nautical nod to its lakefront location. The coastal theme is continued via the artwork and custom vents designed to look like fish scales.
