Shared Foyer And Living Space
The foyer of this home opens up to a shared living space with modern decor. The space is narrow but offers plenty of seating with a large sofa and two armchairs positioned to enjoy the mounted TV and gas fireplace.
Large windows allow natural light to flood this modern staircase, featuring light hardwood steps and a black metal railing. Two small gray stone end tables are positioned under a colorful modern photograph, while a vine ball sculpture adds a bit of texture.
To create flexibility in the children's area, a sliding door subdivides the space for nighttime and nap time, creating two separate bedroom spaces, each with its own entrance. During the day, though, parents can keep the space open, creating a great big playroom for the kids.
This dramatic hallway space is all about dimension. From the recessed ceiling and drop-down light fixture to the built-in display cabinet to the three dimensional mirror, walking through this hallway is an immersive experience.
A simple yet sophisticated foyer welcomes guests to this 1930s Mediterranean villa in Los Angeles. By limiting the decor to a marble-topped table and worn neutral runner, the designers ensured that all eyes would be on the room's interesting architectural details, like the coffered ceilings, carved faces and Spanish-style staircase.
Claire Paquin carefully blended her design ideas with the unusual architecture of this home for a stunning look. For example, in the hall at the top of the staircase leading to the master suite, she placed colorful modern art facing each other on two blank walls to balance the weight of a large slatted half wall that otherwise commands the space.
Whether you want to play, work or relax this room has a spot for everything. Designer Felicia Foster this space to work as efficiently as possible, so she added a compact desk, a pinball machine and a comfortable sofa to make this a multipurpose area.
Mountain Home Includes Foyer With Stone Paver Floor
Because this home has such an open floor plan, the designers used stone pavers to create the illusion of a foyer. A vertical piece of art tucks neatly against the wall, with a slim console table underneath for keys and mail.
Sliding Panels Help to Create a Customizable Floor Plan in the Noho Loft
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
In the foyer, designers wanted to make a bold statement with the space's design, so they brought in crisp, white flowers to contrast with the dark wall tile. The wall tile gives the space a three dimensional effect and relief with lighting. Finally, a custom designed, modern console table was crafted out of dark and white woods to help seamlessly transition the design from white to dark.
