OLSON LEWIS + Architects
This Oceanside home, built to take advantage of majestic rocky views of the North Atlantic, incorporates outside living with inside glamor. Sunlight streams through the large exterior windows that overlook the ocean. The light filters through to the back of the home with the clever use of over sized door frames with transoms, and a large pass through opening from the kitchen/living area to the dining area. Retractable mosquito screens were installed on the deck to create an outdoor- dining area, comfortable even in the mid summer bug season. Photography: Greg Premru

The Tice Residences replace a run-down and aging duplex with two separate, modern, Santa Barbara homes. Although the unique creek-side site (which the client’s original home looked toward across a small ravine) proposed significant challenges, the clients were certain they wanted to live on the lush “Riviera” hillside. The challenges presented were ultimately overcome through a thorough and careful study of site conditions. With an extremely efficient use of space and strategic placement of windows and decks, privacy is maintained while affording expansive views from each home to the creek, downtown Santa Barbara and Pacific Ocean beyond. Both homes appear to have far more openness than their compact lots afford. The solution strikes a balance between enclosure and openness. Walls and landscape elements divide and protect two private domains, and are in turn, carefully penetrated to reveal views. Both homes are variations on one consistent theme: elegant composition of contemporary, “warm” materials; strong roof planes punctuated by vertical masses; and floating decks. The project forms an intimate connection with its setting by using site-excavated stone, terracing landscape planters with native plantings, and utilizing the shade provided by its ancient Riviera Oak trees. 2012 AIA Santa Barbara Chapter Merit Award Jim Bartsch Photography

Your entryway is the first and last room both you and your guests see, so creating a memorable and inspirational space is key. Whether you have a grand foyer or a no-frills mudroom, entryway designs should reflect your home’s overall style and personality. As you look through our photo collection, consider functionality as well as aesthetics to achieve a stylish, organized entry space that’s sure to wow visitors.

How do I decorate my entryway?

Front entries almost always become a drop zone for stuff, which can make decorating seem like a lost cause. However, as you contemplate various entryway decorating ideas, you’ll notice that the decor often doubles as an organizational system. Instead of letting the clutter win, embrace it by adding entryway storage for keys, purses, coats and shoes. Giving each item a designated space will help keep you sane when coming and going, as well as help everyone focus on the entryway decor, not the accumulation of stuff. If you have multiple people in your home, give everyone their own drop spot and include a little extra space for guests.

The little details are where you can really have fun with your entryway design — hooks, bowls and bins don’t have to be boring! The most versatile and unique entryway decorating ideas consist of bringing together different materials, colors and textures, such as wood tones and metallics, to turn a bland area into a stylish space. If you have open wall space, hang artwork or photographs that make you happy or have conversation-starting potential — the most successful entryway ideas incorporate personalized touches as well as functional pieces. Additionally, fresh flowers and knickknacks on a table or shelf always make for an interesting and elegant entryway design.

How do I make my front entrance stand out?

If you’re in the market for heavy-duty entryway remodeling and revamping, you have a lot of options open to you — you’d be surprised by the huge range of entry remodeling ideas on Houzz alone! As you browse entryway photos and contemplate entryway design ideas, you’ll notice that a successful entry design all starts with the front door. So to start your entryway remodel off right, pick out a front door that is style appropriate yet interesting and unique. Think about what works best with your home — an all-glass door is pretty contemporary, while an ornate wood door is elegant and traditional. An entryway remodel is all about livening and enhancing your space, so don’t be afraid to take creative chances and experiment with door sizes and shapes. An arched door works well for Mediterranean-style homes, and a double door is a great way to make a dramatic statement. Your entryway floor can also make the space stand out; go with a mosaic tile or functional concrete.

If your front entrance is set back from the facade of your home, try using a lighter or brighter color palette, and adding potted plants and a welcome mat to make it stand out. Don’t forget about proper lighting — wall sconces or hanging lights will not only help guide visitors in the dark, but will showcase your door and decor. To give your current front door a quick and cost-effective update, try painting it a bright color or adding new hardware for a fresh new look.

How do I turn my entry room into a mudroom?

For larger families, a mudroom is the ideal storage space for shoes, lunch bags, sports equipment and pet essentials. This area also does not have to be a strictly utilitarian space — you can take your creative entryway ideas and apply them to your mudroom! Although this space is often near the back door or garage, you don't need an entire room to reap the benefits — a narrow hall or partial wall will do just fine. In the end, a mudroom is all about the storage. Hall trees, counters, tables and benches can collect and organize day-to-day items, while built-in lockers or cubbies will give individual family members their own space. You can further organize your built-ins by adding smaller storage solutions, such as baskets, bins and trays.
