What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Book Tour: Katie Ridder Rooms
Entryway. Ridder placed a Khotan rug from Turkestan on the floor of her own entry. The handrail on the staircase was covered in red and silver leaf for a colorful accent. Because the entryway is the first thing guests see, Ridder believes that this part of your home should have an impact. She consistently uses bold styles and textures in the entryways she designs, blending big light fixtures, mirrors and wall art, wallpaper, color, and unique floor treatments. She also keeps practicality in mind, and often has grasscloth installed in entryways where strollers and bikes are bound to bump into the walls. MacIsaac writes: "Entryways don't usually require much furniture, but they do need to be well furnished. In decorating a transient space, form is more important than comfort."

Foyer with bench with shoe cubby's, coatrack and noteboard on one side, and laundry or garage door on other...maybe powder room. Then into DS family room and stair way. Upstairs can look down into the foyer and or DS family room.

I love Ridder's choices. Using a chair rail and other textural accents makes for a very rich and eye catching entrance. I don't often use such pale colours in an entry, but in this case there's a lot of wood to define the space so it works really well.
