Joanna considered the foyer one of the most challenging parts of this makeover. She wanted to make a visual statement upon entering the home that showcased the melding of both rustic and traditional elements. A simple chair railing was added to add depth and texture to the space, but without too much formality. The new iron railing with contemporary cabled design is a counterbalancing element and a statement piece in a room that sets the tone for the home's carefully integrated design.
Fireplace Remodel - add built-ins for seating~ I love the added seating, but storage or shelving is necessary. Can lay shelves on their sides and use baskets for storage. Then, create a nice look with molding and chair railing above to meet the mantle...?
