I love the theatre of a great entrance. It’s all about setting the scene for your visitors. “Welcome. Welcome. Come into my world.” And there’s nothing better than the drama of a black and white palette like this foyer and staircase by design studio Alison Rose New York. Simple yet luxurious, it’s a vibrant mix of black and white, old and new.
Haussmannian architecture, signature furniture pieces and a foyer now converted to a library full of books. Just about ticks all the boxes for my perfect Paris apartment. I think I’ll be moving in to this Alma Marceau residence by Studio CMP.
I don’t think I’ve seen such a lovely entrance hall in ages. The colour, the textures, the mix of old and new, traditional but not at all stuffy, country but not saccharine sweet. If you love these three showhouse rooms by Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design you must see the rest of this Montgomery, Alabama based design firm’s portfolio.
This is one of those rare occasions where I feature a home that is lacking in the decor department but the architecture and finishes more than make up for it. All of the black painted trim/stairs/doors, the tile foyer floor, the stained glass front entrance, THE PERFECT KITCHEN, the wide plank flooring, and the tiled bathrooms make this home a dream. Then add in all of your favourite artwork and vintage furnishings and BAM! New on the Shoot Factory roster.
