The bold, striped fabric served as inspiration for the decor in the foyer – a mix of traditional furnishings and earthy and unexpected accessories.
A seating area just steps from the front entrance features a freeform slab table crafted from a fallen tree. The rustic furnishing is paired with a more formal lattice-style chair. Art books, a classical bust, desk lamps and orchids dress the tabletop.
The natural edge of the table counterbalances the clean lines of the chair and formal tabletop accessories.
To lend a clean coastal feel, orchids were potted in coral-like planters, fashioned from pierced resin.
Zebrawood-topped side tables that flank the front entry feature delicate bamboo-style metal legs with an aged, mottled-bronze patina.
Neutral floor tiles made from recycled materials and neutral walls let decor items take center stage.
A cane garden tea stool stands in as a side table and echoes the glossy, white finish of the starburst mirror.
Leopard print and bold stripes prove a perfect pairing in the bold and happy foyer.
