First Impressions/Entry Ways

This entry way makes a bold statement with color and unusual design elements.

Elegant entry, the inlayed tile makes a dramatic statement.

A colorful work of art against stark white walls is the point of departure for accent colors in this residence. A mirror and a small console are always right in any entry hall; a great place to plop your keys and cell phone as you get ready to relax. A bulky and simple baseboard is in keeping with the contemporary architecture.

An entry hall with a center table is functional for placing handbags and packages. Art and sculptures can be showcased in this area for impact.

Reclaimed Balinese doors emphasize the focal point in this entryway. Custom glass doors set an architectural mood with a Versailles-pattern porcelain tile defining the space. Ethnic antique furnishings, wall art and accessories set the tone for a space fit for a world traveler.

In this Washington D.C. loft, Tracy Morris Design introduced warm elements and clean lines into a converted school building. The concrete floors were treated with an acid wash, and the rug is angled toward the entrance to welcome guest into the room. While space maximization is crucial in all designs, it’s especially significant in loft design.

This rare wood and stone base entry table allows for inquiry when one enters the apartment. The faux art painted wall, with a sunflower painting, makes for a great entrance.
