Entry Hall From HGTV Dream Home 2013

Stripped of ornamentation and Zen in aesthetic, the home's humble entry hall hints at a rustic-meets-chic, beachy design scheme.

Walls painted a soothing shade of coastal blue create a warm welcome in the entry, where a beadboard-clad ceiling lends New England charm. A sisal-style durable hall rug leads to a cozy recessed daybed, where guests may sit and kick off shoes before entering the home's main living space. Floor-to-ceiling curtains, when drawn, create a napping cocoon.
