Sonoma Residence Entry HallEclectic Entry, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Entry and MudroomTry something low. A long, low table or bench in the entry invites you to come closer and investigate, rather than dump your keys and bag in a rush through to other rooms. It's a subtle difference, but it could be just enough change to slow your pace from the harried outside world to the peace and comfort of home. Enhance the peaceful effect by placing a single, beautiful orchid or vase of flowers and a pretty cloth on the table.
The walls are plaster, but Parker requested not to have it thoroughly mixed so that there would be inherent differences in color and texture. It was applied using a steel trowel. "It slightly burnishes it when applied," he says. "It gives it a lush, buttery smooth finish."
