From the moment guests enter this family's home, they will see the family's unique personality. The focal point of this foyer is the antique English dresser that has been transformed into an elegant statement piece for this space.

This unique piece lets the family's values be known to all who enter.

Doctor's orders prevented the design team from using any wallpaper, paint or materials that contained high levels VOC. That means in places like this entryway, they turned to a painter who trained in Paris to create custom treatments. By layering an antique dresser and vintage art against the blue-and-white backdrop, the designers made the space feel carefully curated.
