From Kids to QuietTraditional Entry, Boston

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house.

    To me it looks like this is a recycled door cut down a bit and with crown molding added on the top and bottom and oil rubbed bronze hooks and towel bar. Could be quite simple to make. I have an old Queen Anne door I've been thinking of using like that!

    Thank you for your question joannwas! Unfortunately, the archived files for this project are corrupt and I can't find the exact specs. However, I can tell you we are very fond of Rocky Mountain Hardware. You should be able to find something similar there. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your question Joannwas. The hall tree was custom made.

    Thanks for your question. This is a custom made piece, so not a towel bar. I'm sure if you are re-creating your own piece a towel bar would work perfectly. This bar only projects a few inches, 3"-4".

    Thanks for your question. The walls are Benjamin Moore's Summer Harvest 206. The trim and ceiling are White Dove.

Gwendolyn Purdom added this to 5 Home Lessons We Learned From Mary PoppinsNov 29, 2018

1. Always Have an Umbrella HandyEven if your umbrella can’t carry you high above the London skyline like Mary Poppins’ can, having a few of the non-magical variety on hand near the door in case of bad weather is always wise. Not only is stocking your entryway with umbrellas a great way to keep soggy family members and pets from dripping throughout the house, it also sends a thoughtful message to housemates and guests that you, as a homeowner, have their backs.Shop umbrella stands and coatracks

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to How to Make the Most of Your Entry (No Coat Closet Required)Dec 13, 2015

A custom-made storage unit was built for this smaller entry, providing much of the functionality in the previous example on a pared-down scale: hooks for coats, hats and bags; a bar that holds umbrellas in place; and a recessed area at the base in which to prop shoes. To assess the best solutions for your entry, notice which items are consistently brought into and carried out of the house during each season of the year. This will help you identify the furniture and accessories that will support the patterns of your household.

How would these "star" lights look in the entry?

I think thbis is what I would like the interior spaces to look like if not bead boarded walls. A soft pallet, Windham Creme by Ben Moore? Like bright and uncluttered.
