Entryway: Cape Cod Estate on Buzzards Bay in Dartmouth, Mass.
The side entrance has the utility of a mudroom with its tiled floors, storage console and umbrella rack. A guest house to the east echoes the main residence with a gambrel roof, covered porches and shingled facade.
Seafoam Green and Natural Wood Foyer With Stone Tile Raised Landing
The raised landing in the foyer is the result of a structural challenge. To facilitate the raised entrance, a landing with stone tile was added in the foyer, with a step-down into the opened up living space. Seafoam green paint and natural wood walls create a beautiful and welcoming look.
In this foyer, white oak wall and ceiling panels pay homage to old barn interiors. To connect the house with its coastal California location, designers used a blue color palette throughout the rooms. Here, the foyer gets a gray-blue hardwood floor and a blue mirror.
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.
