Foyer From HGTV Green Home 2009
Bold stripes and beach cabana style lend a casual air of elegance to this statement-making space.
Interior Designer Linda Woodrum
It's fun. It's bold. It's big. It's the message of what to expect, what the house will be about.
A design scheme materialized as soon as Linda discovered the striped fabric. The vibrant shade of orange conjured images of beach-cabana style and circa-1950s Florida interiors and complemented the home's modern Spanish architecture. The stripes continue on the free standing wall, setting the tone and providing a dramatic twist with sunburst mirror. Toned-down flooring and fixtures made from recycled material counterbalance the visually arresting front entry.
