Designers strived to maintain a sense of the home's church origins by highlighting architectural elements like the beautiful, arched front door. A repurposed peg board hung on the wall makes for a fun spot to hang scarves and jackets.
Awash in cheery color, this foyer tricks the eye by hanging a large painting of a room above the console. The bright palette of the artwork is picked up in the rug and striped accent pillow making the space itself a compelling still life.
The entry of Chris' condo is a mash-up of classic menswear and midcentury modern styles. A black, silver and gold pinstripe wallpaper from Graham & Brown covers the walls while a brass helix-style chandelier purchased for $200 from a flea market lights the space.
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.
This foyer rotunda comes to life with a hand-painted ceiling edged in a band of specially-commissioned blown glass, creating a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues. The Italian travertine flooring with gold veining initiates in the foyer. An accent back of Jerusalem Gold travertine, augmented with another band of charcoal glass-tile inserts, mimics the oval architecture of the space.
