Contemporary, modern, Greek revival and victorian styles meet together to create a regal, eclectic home entry and foyer. The doors have an amazing impact, and feature softly arched top lines, wrought iron and glass to allow in the light. Another special element is the beautifully tiled floor in a circular pattern, which echoes the curved lines in the room.
This foyer posed a design challenge because of its long, narrow shape. A pendant light brightens the space and gives off a beautiful patterned glow on the ceiling. Those patterns are picked up by the wallpaper. Two commissioned paintings by artist Gina Hurry depict the family's two daughters.
The foyer of this opulent home opens into a space that features a large cross on the wall, a painted ceiling depicting saints and a village. A large sculpture is set into the wall on a built-in cabinet.
Seeking to honor the era of architect Julia Morgan, who designed the home which hosted the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015, designer Candace Barnes selected a painting inspired by 20th century artist Robert Motherwell. The painting by Myke Reilly mimics the geometric patterns in the rest of Barnes' design.
This traditional entryway opens up to a dramatic chandelier, tall ceilings and exposed wood beams. An archway leads to a sophisticated, cozy sitting room with built-in bookshelves and comfortable white armchairs. Gray railings are paired with black metal rods for an elegant descend down the stairs.
In the foyer, a wall of windows from floor to ceiling brings in plenty of natural light making the home feel bright and open. Even with the large space, designers made the entrance of this home feel a little more intimate with simple, warm furniture that brings the home to life.
This warm, neutral foyer and living space features two black framed windows letting in lots of natural light. The sitting room area features two minimalist, cushioned chairs, a bench, patterned rugs and a collector's item motorcycle.
The second home for a couple based in L.A., this two-story penthouse in Seattle easily reflects their edgy tastes. In the entry hall, for example, 5’ long chainmaille chandeliers make quite the impact, while a photo set of Bob Marley offers a glimpse of the rare art that's featured across the home.
An enchanting front entrance with a Dutch door introduces guests to the traditional home. Built in 1902, the homeowners have taken great care to preserve and enhance the architecture and design of Laurentia, as well as to bring its structural integrity to the highest level.
A cozy, built-in bench provides a place to sit and change shoes in this entryway. Cabinet drawers provide plenty of storage for hats, gloves and the other things you might need on the way out the door.
