Contemporary Entryway Shines With Starburst Light Fixture
A floral print adds a fun, feminine touch to this entryway. Although the space is fairly small, designer Sarah Wittenbraker used a statement light fixture and stacks of books to pack the room with personality.
Contemporary Entryway With Graphic Black-and-White Wallpaper
This interior designer's home is full of color and pattern! Beyond the front door, guests will find an entryway with black-and-white wallpaper, a wood console table, royal blue lamps and a teal ottoman.
In the hallway, Ginger filled woven baskets and wood crates with found objects like pine cones, wooden beads and black packages to connect the design in this space to that in her living room. Then, she hung a Chrstmas banner and set out a Christmas pillow to complete the vision.
Color makes such a difference: The print of this foyer's floral wallpaper is traditional enough, but in black and white it looks so fresh and exciting. The black front door continues the color scheme to the exterior.
During the renovation of a home in Greenwich, Conn., Anthony DeRosa of DeRosa Builders was able to incorporate a wet bar into the design of the family room without adding on or stealing space from the seating area. “We fit the bar into a little-used closet,” says DeRosa. “We had cabinets custom built for the space. The biggest challenge was finding a sink small enough to fit within the tight dimensions.” Mission, accomplished.
Black and White Foyer Sets Elegant Statement in Home's Entry
In the foyer, black and white zebra striped benches and black and white art illuminated by black sconces help to create a statement when guest first enter the home, setting the tone for the rest of the home's spaces.
A red front door makes a powerful first impression: eye-catching and exciting both outdoors and in. This one is warmed up by a slight pinkish tinge. It's a fun combination with the foyer's black-and-white vertical stripes.
This home was formerly a two family dwelling and was converted to a single family residence consisting of a kitchen and dining room on the first floor. The second floor hosts the foyer, formal living room and den, while the third floor contains three bedrooms and bathrooms for the family. Black and white staircases connect all three levels.
Black-and-white tile laid in a harlequin pattern creates striking contrast underfoot. Wainscoting brings a traditional element to the space, while abstract art and sleek sconces nod to the contemporary.
Although this entryway is small, it has personality to spare. The side wall covered with a topiary-print, crisp white door and white trim are highlighted by a saturated navy paint. The mix of dark and light tones add depth, tricking the eye to thinking the foyer feel much larger.
