Second Story View of Open Staircase With Charcoal Wallpaper Accent Wall and Deep Tray Ceiling With Lampshade Chandelier
A wood floor at the top of the staircase adds warmth to the decorative gray and white walls and ceiling. As the stairs turn, an accent wall is wallpapered with a charcoal gray design allowing it to stand out subtly from the surrounding walls. A deep tray ceiling features white frame designs and surrounds a lampshade chandelier with crystal center.
A wide front door opens to a soft gray entryway accented by a colorful rug and matching tufted benches upholstered in a soft rose hue. Archways and traditional moldings carry throughout the space, adding architectural interest and traditional flair.
The classic staircase and foyer in this renovated row home feature a modern-meets-traditional design, from the dark gray painted stairs with wooden handrail to the neutral, minimalist furniture seen in adjoining rooms.
Masculine Foyer with Dark Color Scheme and Faux Taxidermy
Faux taxidermy adds a whimsical touch to the foyer of this traditional Brooklyn townhouse. Dark stain on moldings and doors complement the traditional architecture, and soft gray walls carry through to the home's interior.
Gray walls and limestone flooring create a serene, elegant entry that allows the curving staircase to shine. A silver chandelier adds drama to the space and keeps with the tonal gray color palette. Molding replaces brick on the doorways for a more classic, simple look.
Traditional Stairway Features Black and White Gallery Wall
A gallery wall of black and white family photos enhances this traditional stairwell. White wainscoting against gray walls creates a neutral background while the geometric pattern on the stair runner keeps the space feeling warm and inviting.
Wood French doors invite guests inside this beautiful foyer. A large chandelier gives off a warm glow above a rug with gray and purple tones. A tufted purple bench pulls out the violet hue from the rug for an elegant and subtle accent color.
Clever shoe storage tucked beneath the stairway maximizes space in this traditional Brooklyn, N.Y., townhouse. Dark-stained stair treads and a dark handrail offer pleasing contrast against the crisp bright white trim.
Curved walls can be difficult to decorate, but designer John McClain embraces the curve in this hallway with an art gallery of beautiful gemstones in shadow boxes. The hallway leads into a fabulous, feminine bedroom full of bright colors.
A grand staircase with wrought iron railing greets guests as they enter this beautiful Plano, Tex., home. Off the tiled entry is the sophisticated dining room with Venetian plaster walls and statement-making chandelier.
