HGTV Dream Home 2008: Entry and Foyer Pictures

A brick pathway with a variegated pattern bordered by horizontal rows leads up the front porch to the main entry of the house. Step inside and you're surrounded by a vivid coral color covering the walls and ceiling.

Vibrant Entryway

A vivid red coral color covers the walls and ceiling. \"It intensifies the color and creates more of a total color experience,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

Decorative Shelves

A tall rattan-and-leather five-level curio shelf is just inside the door. The shelves are filled with tropical items: a plain white box topped with a conch shell, pieces of artificial coral and a basket filled with starfish. Three silvery coral statues top off the display.

Bring the Beach Inside

\"We used lots of white faux coral pieces and shells in the coral room to really make it pop,\" says Linda.

Coral Accents

Across the foyer, a matching sideboard flanked by two chairs is decorated with shell rings, a basket of sand dollars and a bowl of starfish, anemone and an artificial lily. The doorways are bordered by simple wide white boards.

Colorful Aquatic Life

A vibrant mixed-media painting, \"Hogfish Local Talent,\" by local artist Stacie Krupa, adds one more shot of color to the space. Past the door leading into the garage is a closet containing a custom wine storage system from California Closets. Directly across from the wine closet is a door into a storage area beneath the stairs.
