HGTV Dream Home 2004: Victorian Entryway Pictures

This Victorian entryway, with its heart pine wood floors and beadboard walls, is full of inviting and warm character.

Warm and Cozy Entryway

White-on-white walls showcase dark wood furniture that is accented with an inviting floral arrangement, making the entryway warm, cozy and friendly.

Wood Elements

A key aspect of the decor that contributes to the home's Victorian personality is the extensive use of wood. When guests enter, they are immediately introduced to the wainscoting that is prevalent in the house. Much of the wood flooring is reclaimed antique heart pine, and a closer look reveals nail holes from where it was previously used.

Antique Furnishings

Decorating with antique architectural elements really warms up the entryway. There's an old palladium shutter above a rustic wooden shelf supported by antique brackets or corbels.

Rustic Touches

Just past the wooden shelf is a dark accent table and chair contrasting the white wainscoting. Two rustic sconces filled with candles continue that classic styling that is steeped in tradition and contemporary sensibilities.
