A disco ball light fixture projects twinkly, whimsical light throughout this hallway, giving the otherwise unnoticeable space vivid personality and pizzazz. A rustic wood console table pairs with the wood paneled ceiling to add a natural warmth to the hall.
The white paneling throughout this home's main floor interior is a subtle nautical nod to its lakefront location. The coastal theme is continued via the artwork and custom vents designed to look like fish scales.
A ruffled-edge mirror reminiscent of sea coral and clamshells gives this foyer a modern beachy look. The dark-stained wood entry table adds rough but refined texture with a vignette that sets the tone for the rest of the house.
Black-and-white wallpaper was a smart choice for the entryway as it adds subtle visual interest to the space without being too distracting. Meanwhile, a bright red sconce offers a pop of color that will appear throughout the interior.
Modern Coastal Foyer Sitting Area With White Bench
Treated and stained driftwood stands on display as a sculptural piece of art that adds an organic textural element to this coastal modern foyer. A refurbished antique bench gets a bohemian update with indigo tie dye pillows. The photo of rippled sand calls to mind again the coastal inspiration for this space.
Coastal Sitting Area in Decorator Showcase Garden Room
Designed by Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes, this coastal sitting area in the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase Garden Room features a teal sofa and woven armchair placed around a light-colored coffee table of metal and wood. Tall curtains with a neutral striped pattern help to frame the space.
Neutral Cottage-Style Foyer With Board-and-Batten Walls
Soft taupe paneled walls and a neutral, traditional rug create a stylish entry in this casual, coastal home. The side table by the door provides an easy landing spot for keys, while the lamp on top means you never have to return home to a dark house. Board-and-batten-style walls add visual interest and texture to the space.
Just inside the front door, guests are greeted by an entryway packed with architectural detail, eclectic furnishings and a hint of nautical decor. Heavy iron sconces and caned armchairs pair with a vintage life preserver to create a dynamic juxtaposition that tops off the design.
Beach-blue walls create a bold first impression in the foyer of the home. A powder-coated aluminum stair rail system visually expands the home's usable space. A decorative clock, displayed in the landing, is permanently set at five o'clock—relaxation time. A blue limpet shell mirror, flanked by candle sconces, greets guests in the foyer.
The house's attic gets fresh new life as a colorful sitting area with a small dining table and cozy spots to curl up with a book. Cheery patterns brighten up the armchairs and window. The wood floor gets a shipshape coat of nautical blue.
