Merilane Avenue Residence 2 Foyer

2011 ASID Award Winning Design

This 10,000 square foot home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home that would serve them for the rest of their lives. Our goal was to build and furnish a European-inspired home that feels like ‘home,’ accommodates parties with over one hundred guests, and suits the homeowners throughout their lives.

We used a variety of stones, millwork, wallpaper, and faux finishes to compliment the large spaces & natural light. We chose furnishings that emphasize clean lines and a traditional style. Throughout the furnishings, we opted for rich finishes & fabrics for a formal appeal. The homes antiqued chandeliers & light-fixtures, along with the repeating hues of red & navy offer a formal tradition.

Of the utmost importance was that we create spaces for the homeowners lifestyle: wine & art collecting, entertaining, fitness room & sauna. We placed fine art at sight-lines & points of interest throughout the home, and we create rooms dedicated to the homeowners other interests.

Hello Tomas,

The color of the wall has actually recently been tagged in the photo. The walls are a custom plaster finish, and the contractor used Benjamin Moore's Putnam Ivory as the color tone.

Hope this helps! Thanks!

love it. - I have same foyer in floor plan which is under construction, I like to know your opinion on the right side of wall, should I keep the wall because on right wall I have straight stairs going down to the basement. so basically the question should i expose my basement stair in foyer or hide it with the right wall. I have the left sided stairs going to the upeer floor. Thanks

Thank you for your inquiry! Its really hard to tell without seeing the blueprints for your home, but it could look great either way. In this photo we have stairs to the lower level opening to the left side. I think the way that you have it set up will look fabulous!

Best,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ornate mirrors are most traditionally seen finished in gold and are sure to make a big impact. This notable example allows the remainder of the space to be minimally furnished and accessorized, as its presence instantly becomes a strong focal point.
