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.
Bright teal walls greet guests in the foyer of the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Located in Jacksonville, Fla., the home has a coastal vibe, evident in the bold color choice. A built-in shelf with storage baskets makes it easy to stow flip flops and sunglasses, while mosaic tile stair risers add a beach-inspired vibe to the dark hardwood stairs.
A ruffled-edge mirror reminiscent of sea coral and clamshells gives this foyer a modern beachy look. The dark-stained wood entry table adds rough but refined texture with a vignette that sets the tone for the rest of the house.
Coastal Entry Pairs Wood Details, Blue Accent Wall
Pale blue walls and warm wood floors make this entryway feel particularly calm and coastal. A blue end table topped with a shell complements the seaside aesthetic, as well as provides storage for keys and mail.
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.
Beach-blue walls create a bold first impression in the foyer of the home. A powder-coated aluminum stair rail system visually expands the home's usable space. A decorative clock, displayed in the landing, is permanently set at five o'clock—relaxation time. A blue limpet shell mirror, flanked by candle sconces, greets guests in the foyer.
Entryway Opens to Transitional Living Room With Coastal-Style Atmosphere
This home's entryway is an introduction to the large living room and open floor plan that includes a dining room, family room and kitchen. The space features a weathered wood fireplace and white brick--great additions for designer Debbie Talianko's coastal-style design approach for the home. The look is soft, inviting and comfortable for family living.
Just inside the front door, guests are greeted by an entryway packed with architectural detail, eclectic furnishings and a hint of nautical decor. Heavy iron sconces and caned armchairs pair with a vintage life preserver to create a dynamic juxtaposition that tops off the design.
