First Impression

The stylish entry creates the perfect first impression for HGTV Smart Home 2019 in Dallas, Texas. A geometric porcelain-tile design inset within the white oak hardwood floor packs a visual punch, Old World-style chandeliers illuminate the space from above, and custom-framed black-and-white photography captures images of the local area.

Framing the Front Door

Tall white pedestals placed on each side of the front door offer a spot for storing keys and add a touch of greenery to this entry that welcomes guests inside this well-designed home with all the conveniences of today’s technology.

Come Inside

The elegant solid mahogany front door with a protective black stain with a hint of gray includes a matte-black wireless Bluetooth lock with transom window above, and Flemish glass inserts that offer the look of hand-blown glass without the seeds or bubbles. The glass slightly distorts the view and allows natural light inside, but also offers a bit of privacy.

Advanced Security

The base station for the home’s easy-to-use security system sits in the entry. This advanced security system is professionally monitored 24/7 by six different monitoring centers, even in the event of a power outage.

Style Preview

This view looking toward the front door highlights the stylish decor that makes the entry a welcoming space that gives visitors a preview of the home’s sophisticated style.

Quick Change

Large custom wall art with local flavor by artist Celery Jones sits over a leather bench that provides an easy way to change shoes or casually store a handbag or hat. “I love the look of those older homes on the flat lands of Texas,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. “Celery captures that moment perfectly.”

Focal-Point Floor

An eye-catching geometric porcelain-tile floor inset into the light 7-inch white oak hardwood floor used throughout the house gives the entry a punch of personality and a distinctive look that previews the attention to detail seen both inside and outside this home.

Easy-Access Powder Room

This door to the powder room sits just off the entry, in a hallway that leads to the garage and includes the laundry room and a mudroom area.

Removable Barrier

A handy pullout doggie pocket door between the entry and laundry room helps keep furry friends from wandering outside or into restricted parts of the home, and slides out of the way when not in use.

Dramatic Contrast

The entry’s dark-gray ceiling provides dramatic contrast for the soft white walls that line this long and lean space that leads visitors to the main living areas of the home.

Unique Lighting

Two three-tier chandeliers done in roughly hewn brass with a six-foot drop chain bring a touch of drama and Old World style to the entry.

Local Flavor

Custom-framed black-and-white photography shot in different areas of Dallas leaning on shelves in the entry reflects the area and offers a modern twist on a traditional gallery wall.

Smooth Transition

This wider view from the home’s front door to the great room shows the black-and-white photography leaning on the shelves and how the entry creates a smooth transition from the front yard to the main living areas of the home.

Multisurface Cleaning

A multisurface vacuum safe for sealed hardwood floors and area rugs helps keep HGTV Smart Home 2019 clean. You can vacuum and wash your floor at the same time, with a handy multisurface pet brush roll and pet-hair strainer for easy cleaning.

Sets the Tone

Looking straight ahead to the great room, this smart and sophisticated entry sets a tone for visitors as they enter HGTV Smart Home 2019 located in Dallas, Texas.
