Modern Farmhouse: Entry and Living Room


The entry to the house was pretty drab, with a long narrow hallway that led to a tiny closet (for all the floor plan details, go back to the previous post).  Now, the foyer led to the basement landing and the main staircase to the 2nd and 3rd floors.  My clients picked a nice dark stain for the new white oak floors that contrasted nicely with our off-white walls. We created a little entry moment by bringing in a pretty weathered console that had a little tray for keys and baskets for shoes.  Pretty sconces light the way to the basement stairwell.

The living room was the least touched.  The layout stayed the same and we just updated with floors and paint.  The fireplace brick was painted the same white trim color and we recycled one of the old beams for the mantle. Changing the light fixtures and adding some furniture and decor finished off the space.
