First Floor Hallway Pictures From HGTV Dream Home 2014

Bold design details, rich textures, bright colors and a spot just for Fido fill the first floor hallway just off the entry foyer.

  • Stairs toward pet alcove

    Space under a staircase is often a missed design opportunity. Here, interior designer Linda Woodrum recaptured the space for use as a room just for Fido. The Dutch door allows the pet to stay inside its area when guests come over, yet still be able to see or hear the action.

  • Stairs toward landing

    Floating stairs — chunks of oiled Douglas fir without risers — look modern and allow light to flow between them.

  • Stairs toward first floor

    Interior designer Linda Woodrum repeated a square motif throughout the house to create a cohesive look. Here, the shape is featured both in the geometric squares featured on the powder room walls and in the artwork just outside.

  • Hall bath vanity

    A mix of rustic, traditional and modern, the powder room makes a bold statement, starting with the sage-green walls and stained wood blocks applied in a grid pattern. A porthole-style mirror, antiqued brass vessel sink and hammered metal pendants add texture and shine.

  • Detail-bathroom mirror

    \"As you walk by, it has wonderful dimension and interest,\" interior designer Linda Woodrum says of the powder room. \"It's a room that's used a lot, and it's important to have something interesting there. \"

  • Hallway artwork

    A series of bold transfer prints by artist Annie Hooker featuring Truckee, Calif. landmarks and curiosities picks up on the blues and greens featured in the mudroom area.

  • First floor hallway

    Wood and metal — common mountain home materials — are given a modern twist as two contrasting wall treatments. The bamboo flooring featured throughout the house lines the stairwell wall, while a corrugated metal installation accents the foyer.

  • Detail-handrail

    Welted steel supports, stainless steel mesh and an oiled wood railing extend the modern look up the stairs.

  • Stairs toward second floor

    Contemporary furniture and gold-tinged accessories create an inviting alcove at the top of stairs.
