A fieldstone wall continues from the exterior of this contemporary California home to the interior foyer, literally bringing the outside in. The 24-inch walls are built from stones gathered on the site, embracing the home's wine country setting and fulfilling the owners' desire for indoor-outdoor living.
This otherwise simple modern foyer earns a funky touch from a blue and white patterned wallpaper paired with a large wooden starburst mirror. A sleek brown and black side table features a white ceramic cut-out vase with feathers, while a brown and ivory patterned area rug lines the floor.
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.
A crystal chandelier and polished black-and-white floor make this foyer feel totally glamorous. As guests step into the space, the chandelier will draw their eyes up the spiral stairs to the second level.
East meets west in this eclectic entry hall, which features a nail head-studded door, shouldered arch and original crown molding. A star-shaped flush-mount light fixture echoes the star pattern on the door. An original phone niche houses a sculpture from the owner's extensive art collection. French Colonial-inspired architectural elements are set off by the contrast brought by white walls and ebonized hardwood floors.
