Tour Sara Ruffin Costello’s Striking and Stylish Home
In the past month or so, I have come across two amazing round wood tables both roughly 36" in diameter. Currently, we have no place for them so they will most likely be filed away under the mental category of "great finds I probably should have purchased". I love a round table for a breakfast nook or in a den surrounded by comfy chairs but I really love one in an entry. Take a look below to see some of my favorite images. 1. via Marion House Book 2. via Lonny design by Mark Sikes…
Brooke Davenport wanted the entry hall in her Los Angeles house to make a statement, so she used a graphic zebra rug from Melrose Carpet and a large table skirted with Scalamandré fabric; it also masks storage for big outdoor pillows.
In terms of hierarchy no area is more important to the home than the main entry. Some are grand while others are scaled back. This used to be dark and uninvited. A new front door with sidelights changed everything.
The Chic Technique: Dark stained double doors open to an absolutely gorgeous foyer featuring a coffered ceiling accented with an antique brass lantern hanging over a round antique table topped with orchids.
