A warm wood console table greets visitors at the door of this midcentury home, as well as provides storage for books, keys and mail. To complete the vignette, designer Barbara Vail hung a round, gold-trimmed mirror, which helps to make the small space feel larger and more open.
At the foot of the stairs, a large mirror and wood console table create a drop zone for keys and mail. Not only does the mirror complement the runner with its bright purple trim, but it also reflects the natural light and makes the entryway feel larger in scale.
This traditional black and white foyer has soft neutral marble floors and neutral cream paint on the walls. Intricate wooden columns and archways are complemented by gorgeous black detailing in the iron stair rail and glossy wooden entryway table, adorned with an oversized vase of fresh flowers
Natural wood is used for the door and entryway wall, contrasting against the dark hardwood floors. Coat hooks and a bench with open cubbies provide easy-to-access storage. A graphic piece of art adds visual interest to the white walls.
This two-story loft in Boston's South End features new walnut stair treads that lead up to the master suite.

Though the home was essentially gutted from the ground up, the design team used reclaimed wood beams and shiplap walls to preserve its sense of character and charm. They then layered in neutral furniture and rugs to create an inviting space for the owners.
A broad sweep across the entry of this modern California home shows a textured fireplace surround, a dramatic wood plank accent wall and a peek at a dining area with painted Thonet chairs. A mod take on a coffered ceiling adds interest overhead.
Natural light filters through this clean, white entryway, making it feel even brighter. Floating stairs with a clear glass railing lead the way to the home's second level. A gray rug grounds the floor space to add subtle contrast to the design.
Bright orange accents add pizzazz to this contemporary foyer. A vintage fiberglass table centers the room, and a stunning crystal chandelier hangs above. On one side of the space, a wallcovering with gray polka dots and orange damask stretches from the wall to the ceiling. A vintage orange bicycle and a large self-portrait complete the snazzy design.
White walls and open spaces showcase the beautiful, blue ocean view that serves as the focal point for this Malibu home. The foyer opens to a contemporary staircase and an open-concept living room and kitchen with a rear wall made entirely of glass.
