Welcoming Foyer

The glory is in the details as Minnesota Designer Brandi Hagen of Eminent Interior Design sought furnishings, art and accessories that felt collected over time.

The front entry of this stately home feels both formal and comfortable.

Hello. This is from a project from several years ago and I've archived my specs regarding the height of the wainscot. I would guess that it is about 72" from the floor. When planning wainscot, you need to take into account the scale of the space. This foyer had high ceilings and therefore the height was determined by what is best for that space. If your ceilings are a standard 8' 0" and you desire a higher wainscot, use the rule of thirds. Plan for the wainscot to be 2/3 of the overall height of your ceiling which would be a height of 64". Always consider how the wainscot will die into door and window casing when planning.
Good Luck!
