Contemporary with country influence, the entryway is both stylish and comfortable. The chevron-patterned front door complements the long, narrow windows on either side, bringing pattern and interest to the design.
The homeowners are avid art collectors and this niche in the millwork serves as the focal point of a gallery hallway designed to showcase larger pieces of their collection. Venetian plaster is used behind the sculpture to add a interesting velvety texture without distracting from the art.
The original plain white metal staircase is completely redesigned by encasing them in the same walnut used for the feature wall. Floor-to-ceiling copper poles are used an unexpected handrail, and an indoor swing hangs at the base of the stairwell for a playful touch.
This inviting foyer features a black metal spiral staircase with matching railing and wood stair treads. A glass hexagon chandelier is positioned above a round mirrored glass table with potted flowers. A black dyed cowhide rug finishes off the look of the space.
Etched Wood Cabinet With Decorative Vase and Abstract Painting
A pattern etched into the wood of this cabinet gives it an artistic personality. The dark wood pops against the light background and is decorated with bright colors from the vase and abstract painting resting above it.

Contemporary High-Gloss Staircase With Industrial Accents
This chic entryway features a brown wood staircase with a high-gloss finish, giving it a sleek, contemporary look. Metallic accents, like the black railing and exposed air ducts along the ceiling add an industrial feel to the space.
This contemporary foyer features a mirror that completely covers one wall and is positioned behind a built-in wood shelf to display a decorative sculpture. The wood walls and wood floors blend to create a seamless look.
To add life to the living room, the area rug was replaced with colorful carpet squares that also added pattern to the space. The brown pillows were swapped for colorful prints picked up on the cheap from a show house sample sale. To help accommodate up to three guests comfortably, the tiny coffee table was placed into the storage space to make room for a trio of modern nesting tables. For a wallpapered look, an 8-foot-by-4-foot sheet of 3/4-inch foam board was covered with wallpaper and fastened to the wall using double-sided tape.
This home's main entrance is a vision of a serene, tonal, textural dream home. The unique and modern globe pendant lights are the focal point of this high-ceilinged space; the fixtures juxtapose the rustic stone walls to create a room both comfortable and inspirational.
