Talk about good first impressions! The home's foyer is full of personality: Golden arrows make a graphic arc up and over the mirror. The console is loved by the man of the house; the vintage blue chair is a favorite of the lady.
East meets west in this eclectic entry hall, which features a nail head-studded door, shouldered arch and original crown molding. A star-shaped flush-mount light fixture echoes the star pattern on the door. An original phone niche houses a sculpture from the owner's extensive art collection. French Colonial-inspired architectural elements are set off by the contrast brought by white walls and ebonized hardwood floors.
In the foyer of this cozy, yet spacious cabin retreat, a sliding barn door and wood-paneled walls introduce visitors to the home's rustic ambiance from the moment they step inside. A narrow niche houses a built-in bench, a perfect spot to perch and pull off your boots. Draperies dress the windows that flank the front door, and the panels draw to offer nighttime privacy. A wagon wheel-style chandelier adds sparkle while keeping with the cozy cabin feel.
Contemporary, Rustic Pieces Blend to Create Balanced Look
A rustic table and wall paneling and plush seating welcome guests and residents into this cozy cabin getaway. The sleek lines of the chairs and modern artwork balance the setting to create a sitting area that's not overly country or contemporary.
The entry to this quaint Jamestown, Rhode Island, cottage is both charming and functional, with a built-in bench that's perfect for stopping to put on or take off shoes. Nautical-style light fixtures hang from the peaked, beamed ceiling. Copious white-painted woodwork fits with the bungalow's East Coast cottage style, giving the home a sense of place from the moment a visitor steps inside.
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.
The home's layout was reorganized around this main corridor with sightlines that reach all the way across the main floor and out to sweeping ocean views. Walls are a fresh, bright white, adding to the airy feel.
Though the home was essentially gutted from the ground up, the design team used reclaimed wood beams and shiplap walls to preserve its sense of character and charm. They then layered in neutral furniture and rugs to create an inviting space for the owners.
Graphic wallpaper makes for a striking background in this midcentury-modern entryway. Blue velvet chairs flank either end of the wood-and-metal console table, while a sunburst mirror on the wall above rounds out the look.
Modern Home Entry With Black Front Door, Large Window Door Frame and Colorful Rug
A black front door create a beautifully bold contrast against the white walls and ceiling of this entryway. Uncovered windows framing the door flood the space with light highlighting the already bright look of the design. A square rug adds decorative color lying beside a simple table and large wall-propped mirror.
This foyer instantly sets a whimsical, airy scene thanks to ceilings that go up to the second level, a floating staircase with glass railings, dandelion puff pendants and sculpture climbers scaling the walls.
A traditional foyer with sweeping staircase and white wainscoting panels add architectural interest to this elegant entry. Calcutta marble floors lined with blue limestone make one feel like they're walking into a mansion.
A large, handcrafted door makes a great first impression on visitors, as its warm design easily complements a wood accent wall. The rest of the foyer is rich with raw texture, too, like the cement console table and rock wall that extends down the hallway.
