From the moment you step in the front door, designer Kristina Wolf played up the home's dominant Craftsman features. White interior columns and wide molding stand out against the powdery blue walls in the foyer.
You don't need a huge space to have a home office and reading nook. This desk and armchair are set up in small nooks created with the addition of a stairwell during a home renovation. A small writing desk offers enough room for a laptop and other desktop necessities, and the addition of a simple dining chair rather than a heavy duty office chair keeps the look streamlined.
Staying true to the craftsman style, the foyer features warm wood furnishings and wonderful architectural details, like the trio of windows above the console table. Reddish-brown tile is grounded by an area rug that adds color and interest to the space.
Open wide doorways connect the rooms of the lower level, giving an easy, friendly flow to the house. Moldings and the front door are given special notice with a dark brown finish that's a handsome, crisp contrast to the tan walls.
This Craftsman-style foyer uses simple architectural elements such as a brick wall and rich wood tones to invoke a warm first impression. A charming built-in houses a plant, highlighted by a wooden-carved entryway mirror. A custom-made Delos area rug adds visual interest to the space.
The Craftsman-style home received a complete remodel, which improves circulation by creating a central hall from the entry door that leads to the main spaces of the house. The sweeping ceilings are 10 feet tall, and the hall is lined with rich paneled columns.
This creative storage space was designed by TriplePoint Design Build to accommodate books and living room knickknacks in the entryway of this remodeled home. The bookcases and columns, which were painted white to match to ceiling and trim of the home, divide the foyer from the living room. The size of the cubby space mirrors the sidelight cutouts above the front door for an interesting effect.
Hardwood flooring leads up to the wood staircase where the direction of the wood grain changes guiding the movement through the foyer space. A soft sea green wall color above the lower wall white paneling adds subtle color to the design. A rich wood piano is complimented with a stained glass lamp creating an inviting look.
