Tuxedo Road traditional-entry
 

Tuxedo Road

light oatmeal colored walls in a custom, hand plastered large scaled damask softens strong but classic black and white marble floors, contemporary and organic artwork hang above a gilded Louis XVI console with slate colored marble top, venetian lamps add touch of warmth with gold flecks in glass, venetian lamps from Baker Furniture are an updated style and give freshness to space, cool gray colored console table is made of concrete, console is a mixture of smooth texture on one side and very rough on the other so it can be used for an exterior look, beautiful painting above gray concrete console shows beautifully and works in harmony with sculpture also resting on top of concrete console, natural light flood this space in the entry creating a healthy, relaxed feeling, coral colored roses give nice punch of color to space, simple arrangements of furnishings keep a spacious feeling to entry, pair of black and white bone boxes on concrete console bring a little touch of floor to space.

This was an existing floor, but I believe the tiles were 12" x 12".

This is one of a pair of antique French gilded consoles. Call Parc Monceau in Atlanta to see if they still have them on their floor. Beautiful!

Most likely this is Thassos white marble and Absolute black granite. I'm currently putting this in my home, and have been told this is what everyone uses. Solid black marble tiles are hard to find! In fact, I'm not sure there actually is a solid black marble. I have looked and can't find it. Nero Marquino black marble has a lot of white veining in it, and the veining is very visible!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Old Gold is a New Neutral
Combine the palest gold with a hint of pink to create an effervescent champagne hue.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Today's Concrete: Warm and Wonderful
7. Concrete plays a special role in traditional interiors. Rather than needing to soften the concrete table, the concrete is used to add a hard edge to this ornate, traditional hallway. One single counterpoint is all it takes.
Baroque resurgence: Known as The Money Decade, the era brought back Renaissance touches, with heavily ornamented and gilded pieces gaining popularity among those flush with cash. Here, a glossy checkerboard floor adds Jazz-Age style to the room.
ds design studio added this to 10 Tile Patterns to Showcase Your Floor
4. Checkerboard. Two colors of square tiles alternate to create this pattern. They can be set straight or on the diagonal.
Suzy Q Mirjam added this to Great Print: Decorating with Damask
If you already have a room with a lot of colors and patterns, opt for a pale damask with two similar tones such as beige and white. This barely-there white and cream print works well with a checkered floor without looking too busy.
If you want a styled table to be the main focal point in a room, avoid a heavy lamp that will divert attention. Instead, opt for a delicate glass lamp that'll create a more appropriate balance.
Layer it. This entry was part of a show house and was designed by Christy Dillard Kratzer of Dillard Pierce Design Associates (formerly Dillard Design Group). "The inspiration was a great, fresh traditional take on a foyer," she says. "The large-scaled damask was a great way to give the walls a subtle backdrop and allow for a layering of artwork and furnishings to shine in front of it." She adds, "I think wallpaper gives a room great dimension and a nice layered effect."Wallpaper: damask, Bone, Dillard Pierce Collection
Elements of Style added this to Get Glowing With Gilded Decor
Oil gilding. Today there are two methods of gilding that were developed in ancient Egypt and improved upon during the Renaissance.Oil gilding can be used on both indoor and outdoor decorations. During the process a linseed oil–based glue is applied to a very clean surface. The gold leaf is laid down when the glue is dry to the touch but still slightly tacky. Professional-grade gilding tools are used to manipulate the incredibly thin leaf. When the glue is dry, the loose leaf is brushed away and the surface is buffed with cotton wool.The subtle gilding on this antique French console table works perfectly in this setting.
A demilune table is always an elegant presence in any room, and this antique French gilded one is no exception. I love the way the curved line of the table contrasts with the very geometric design of the floor in this striking entry hall.“Demilune” is French for “half moon,” and this style of table was probably developed in France. The style came into widespread use in the 1750s and has remained popular ever since, though it’s especially characteristic of Louis XVI and neoclassical designs, such as those by Hepplewhite and Sheraton. We’ve really only scratched the surface of tables — figuratively speaking, of course. There are gateleg tables, refectory tables, drafting tables, nested tables, drum tables, chess tables, billiards tables, card tables … just to name a few. Decorating with antique tables of any kind is a fascinating display of how artistic gifts can add beauty and inventiveness to the mundane aspects of life.More: Decorating With Antiques: Chests, Dressers and Buffets
