To create the look and feel of an entryway although the home is completely lacking in one, a properly scaled console table was placed just inside the door to hold keys, mail and wallets. The space above is used to hold jackets, scarves and bags while the space below houses baskets for shoes, boots and pet supplies.
White walls and a matte black door make a classic combination in this foyer. To the left, a console table gives the owners a place to drop their keys and mail, while a geometric light fixture illuminates the space overhead.
Cobalt-blue Moroccan-inspired rugs line this transitional hallway, adding color and style to the neutral space. The rugs also help to soften the hardwood floors, ensuring the space feels inviting and homey.
The stunning trompe l'oeil effect of this painting adds dimension and depth to this narrow walkway, making it appear larger. Simple, chrome sconces don't distract from the art, but give off just enough light to enjoy it.
The easy style of this light-filled foyer matches its coastal California setting in Orange County's Corona del Mar. Twin consoles each get a stool, a plant and a pretty basket. The front door has the intriguing design element of being able to split into an upper and lower half.
Just off the dining room in this home, designers added a bar space to make entertaining easier for these homeowners. Although a small space, it is both stylish and functional, from its metallic penny round tile backsplash to its glass paneled cabinets for storing drink glasses to the multiplicity of cabinets and prep sink, this space is perfect for mixing drinks and setting up hours d'oeuvres it looks great, too!
Sideboard with style! This hallway becomes utilitarian with the addition of a traditional, embellished sideboard. Unique, contemporary sconces and a large, white art piece create a funky flair, making the space both fresh and elegant.
This landing comes to life with large pieces of contemporary art and a coral-and-teal striped runner. As guests ascend the stairs, they'll also be able to admire the wall of windows, a gold chandelier and wood banister -- the last of which was lovingly restored.
