Contemporary Foyer with Plaid Rug and Door Surrounded by Windows
Soft tones define the style for this contemporary foyer. Large windows flanking the door bring a lovely light to the space. The lively pops of blue and pink update the traditional motif fabrics and keep the space young and fresh.
Originally a closed staircase but now entirely open, this renovated foyer allows a view of two floors, and its high ceiling is enhanced by warm hardwood floors, geometric light fixtures and modern doors, inventing a truly dramatic and airy-like entrance to a contemporary home.
Geometric Painting in Entryway Links Home's Past and Present
Seeking to honor the era of architect Julia Morgan, who designed the home which hosted the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015, designer Candace Barnes selected a painting inspired by 20th century artist Robert Motherwell. The painting by Myke Reilly mimics the geometric patterns in the rest of Barnes' design.
To make an exciting impression from the moment anyone walks into this apartment, the designer chose wallpaper with a bark-like pattern and a dark jewel-toned color for the ceiling. A shagreen console adds to the layers of texture.
The foyer is the first chance any home has to show off its unique style, and designer Claire Paquin takes full advantage of the opportunity. Walls are covered in a delicate floral pattern that gets contemporary zip from a purple console table and two striped stools.
Home Entry with Glass and Wrought Iron Door, Featuring Custom Tile Inlay on the Floor
Contemporary, modern, Greek revival and victorian styles meet together to create a regal, eclectic home entry and foyer. The doors have an amazing impact, and feature softly arched top lines, wrought iron and glass to allow in the light. Another special element is the beautifully tiled floor in a circular pattern, which echoes the curved lines in the room.
The foyer of this updated farmhouse features sleek gray floor tiles and paneled walls, presenting from the very entry a juxtaposition that continues throughout the space. Once dark, dated and closed in, the house now features an open-airy floor plan with a contemporary color palette and loads of natural light. Modern furnishings blend seamlessly with period and rustic details.
This entryway offers a dramatic and memorable welcome. Stunning chevron flooring, textured wallpaper and a mod oversized light fixture really make a meaningful impact. A signature statement of designer Susan Jamieson is to paint handrails in a bold high gloss black that adds a graphic punch and works with so many styles.
