Nantucket Entry by T. Keller Donovan, wainscoting on staircase, blue wall with family and sea art. I'd put a large port hole window at the foot of the stairs. Maybe a grey instead of blue and like this for the living room and hall.
A Classic Entrance Designer William Hodgins said, & felt like this wide walkway needed strong symmetry and strong furniture.& To that end, he placed a pair of large Sheraton consoles against one wall. Foyer floors are faux-painted marble tile.
LOVE THIS ENTRY WAY! This house was patterned after homes built in the and - stunning entry - it is rare to see a home with a double entry vestibule. Some well built very old homes have this feature usually with a tiled floor.
