Mediterranean-Modern Foyer With Crisp White Walls, Marble Floors
A refreshing wash of white spills over guests when they step inside this Mediterranean-modern foyer. To showcase some of the space's interesting architectural details, the designers defined the balcony, staircase railing and door with matte black paint.
The interior of the home proves to be just as interesting as the exterior, with large archways and light fixtures that feel like they're right out of Morocco. Colorful tile lines the stairs and draws the eye to the second level.
Heavily distressed flooring and ceiling beams turn the hallway of this Austin home into a standout space in its own right. Dark trim pops against the off-white walls and ceiling, and a row of lanterns mimics the lines of the arched openings.
Large steel windows illuminate this romantic stretch of hallway and highlight the great view. Warm, natural wood brings its rustic feel from above while the overall shape is reflective of Mediterranean design.
An inviting raised foyer with seating is the first thing you see upon entering this Mediterranean-style home. Recessed lighting draws attention to the comfy chair, and natural weathered wood floors add an earthy elegance to the unique space.
The dramatic entry sweeps up the spiral staircase with a vortex beginning at an antique finial in the foyer. The domed ceiling is made of hand-applied fish scales lit by a midcentury modern chandelier found in Paris. The iron stair railings add Mediterranean character to the design.
