This cozy vestibule welcomes visitors and gives clues to the home’s overall design scheme, the pairing of old and new. Modern artwork and a contemporary pendant light cozy up to Brazilian chestnut floors and traditional furnishings.
The entrance to the home exudes elegance. An arched mahogany front door matches with the hardwood floor and winding staircase. A pair of candelabra chandeliers and a piano nestled in the corner completes the timeless design.
Perfectly poised on a striped rug, the client's dog, Riley, takes in a view of this neutral traditional foyer with crisp white molding and doors. A drum-shade pendant light provides soft lighting for the adjacent stairwell.
Every good entry makes a statement, setting the tone for the rest of the home. The basic builder-grade staircase in this entry has been updated with traditional paneling, and the basic square post is wrapped with crown molding and base trim detailing.
Curves rule the day in this elegant Washington foyer, from the curved walls to the engaged columns to the petite center table and crescent-shaped bench. The scrolled design in the wrought iron balcony rails is echoed in the double front doors.
