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.
Nautical Daybed Turns Second-Floor Landing Into Comfy Spot
What might be considered dead space on a second-floor landing is turned into a cozy nook for reading or napping thanks to a nautical-print daybed piled with pillows. Drawers in the base of the bed offer extra storage.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
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.
Twin mattresses, nestled atop custom-crafted platforms, provide napping and sleeping space in this clever playroom. Anchored into the ceiling, the beds are designed to gently sway as coastal breezes blow through the ground level space.
A fresh minty green called "Restful" (SW 6458) from the HGTV Home paint collection by Sherwin-Williams evokes an airy coastal feeling in this bright sunroom. The table coated in "Rapture Blue" (SW 6773) draws the eye further into the space. Botanical prints hang on the paneled walls, lending to this coastal cottage feel. An eclectic mix of wicker and traditional furniture in whites, neutrals, and blues sets the tone for the casual space. White curtains allow for plenty of natural light and a white throw rug over hardwood flooring anchors the room.
Palest blue walls act as a neutral in the foyer, while adding a hint of color and depth to the space. At the foot of the stairs, a built-in bench is a handy landing pad for putting on shoes or dropping off bags.
Coastal Inspired Foyer With Board and Batten Walls
Board and batten walls, coastal decor and glass lamps with linen lampshades give this beautiful foyer a casual, beachy vibe. The pared-down palette, consisting only of whitewashed walls and variegated hardwood floors, creates an effortlessly polished look.
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.
