    It looks like flaming birch flooring. Do you see the need grain pattern on the left. They really do look like flames :-)

    That could be the case! They were existing floors so we didn't source them. A walnut stain would achieve a similar look.

    Look for a hand knotted rug made completely of vegetable dyed wool. Wool is basically indestructible and a vegetable dye is not likely to bleed. Traditional Turkish and Persian rugs for a pattern that won't show dirt (or wine!). As much as I love grass rugs, they are kind of fragile for entries.
    Good Luck!

    Here's where a better quality rug is ideal--wool originating in very cool climates like Tibet or New Zealand has lots of natural lanolin which repells dirt and stains. If you get cheaper wool, it will never stop "fuzzing" and it will accept stains. Just be sure to take it to be professionally cleaned regularly and you'll be fine. Depending on your climate, such as if you have a few months a year when people will be coming in with snowy boots, for example, you might want a synthetic alternative and save the good rug for the drier seasons...

    I'm not sure if this one in particular is made anymore since this project was about 6-7 years ago but check out Aqua Creations.

    I believe the railing is painted black, but I don't know the name of the color or manufacturer.

            According to Lusthoff, a newel post traditionally encapsulated the architecture of a home and reflected the social class, interests and even occupations of the owners. “A large, ornate newel post indicated wealth and status,” she says. “Grander homes would have more impressive and costly newel posts.”The lathe-turned newel post in this Boston brownstone, renovated by Rachel Rieder Interiors, makes an elegant statement in the foyer.

            Have a special light. This photo has long been a favorite of mine, and obviously of a lot of yours too (it has been added to more than 18,000 of your personal ideabooks). Yes, it’s got fabulous doors and an incredible carved newel, but what determines its style is that fabulous pendant light. I know this is not one of our usual cheap and easy fixes. However, this is one spot where you should spend a good chunk of time. There are many options — scout a vintage bargain light and give it a spruce-up and rewiring. Hit ReStore on a regular basis to see what comes in. Spray paint a tired builder’s-grade lantern a snazzy color you love. Or repurpose something else into a fab light — perhaps a birdcage or a basket. Here are 12 ideas for making lights from found objects to help get your creative juices flowing.

            This newel post was created with a wood turner, which spins the raw wood across a blade and carves it uniformly.

            Kenny Grono added this to An Expert Guide to Safe and Stylish StaircasesFeb 16, 2012

            Newel posts are another stair part you may be able to find salvaged. Salvaged or new, the newel anchors the railing. Any time you have a building element that is fastened to a wall only at one end of the span, you have the potential for wobble. Some stair railings go up several floors in a continuous loop before they reach a wall. A firmly anchored newel post is critical to making sure your railing is secure. If your existing newel post is wobbly, you can buy a kit from the hardware store that contains angle brackets to anchor it to the floor, and wood trim with space routed out so that it hides the brackets. Once it's painted or stained, it will look like a part of the post. If the post is on the first floor and you have a basement, you can hide the fasteners by coming up from below with lag screws.

            On my own list: painting doors (black). I am obsessed with the look of glossy black doors with matte white walls. I really want to paint my interior doors all black. And I will. But there are 10 of them, and it means taking the door off the hinges and removing the hardware first. Most doors would need to be primed before the new paint is applied. This is a bigger project, but it's not hard. One day I will motivate to just get it done. Your comments might help in that department.

            Coat tree. More unique than your average wall-mounted hooks or coat closet, a coat tree is a practical way to hang things you won't need until later. I like the thought of seeing my favorite scarves and hats as I come and go. Why hide the things you find beautiful and visually stunning? I like this one made from reclaimed roots.

            Don't be afraid to mix styles in a space. Take the concept a black handrail, newel post and railing a step further and paint the front door black. And add an unexpected modern light fixture and rug. I just can't say enough about this foyer. I love the tension between the heavy and traditional newel post, doors and crown moulding and the uber graphic rug and modern pendant.

            Love Your Room LLC added this to How to Choose the Right Rug for Your EntrywayJul 11, 2011

            If you have a smaller entry hall, go big with your rug’s size and pattern. Measure the width of the entry and look for a rug that will take up a bulk of the space. You will find you have more choices with larger rugs. Find one that has a large geometric shape that will fool the eye into thinking the space is larger.

            Explore alternative materials. New uses for various materials are popping up in each seasons' interior design trends. Silk, for example, has made its way from upholstery and drapery to pendant lighting. Traditionally, silk brings an air of elegance to any environment and provides this entry with a touch of luxe.
