Southwest Southwestern Entry, San Francisco

Facing a busy street, the entry has a heavy wood door with a speakeasy. An array of glass blocks, sandblasted for privacy, let in light.
Using the wall depth for a mirror and shelf refrains from crowding the small space.

The grille came as an option with the door (functioning peep-hole cover too)


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Arched wood doors and Mexican tile are other key elements not just in Navajo interiors, but Southwestern style in general. Sticking with this combo in an entrance or great room will ensure an aesthetic certain not to go out of style — unless you move to Antarctica or the rain forest. In that case, I guess the Navajo style would't really work. Anyone else use Navajo accents in their own place? If so, how?
Natalie Myers added this to Keys to a Stylish Entry
I appreciate how the homeowner insisted on creating a console + mirror area in this narrow entry space by finding an extra narrow table and creating a niche in the wall for the mirror. The rustic table and carved mirror go well with the Spanish-style home.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to A Cool Door Feature With a Clandestine Past
“When we make speakeasy doors today, we often insert a pane of glass for weather protection,” Barrett says. He says that when using a speakeasy grille on an exterior door — as seen in this example, from Tali Hardonag Architect — it’s best to put it on a door well protected by a covered entry. “They can catch water, and it’s best not to have standing water on a door,” he says.
