Sliding Screen Doors - The owners of this South Carolina home wanted a welcoming entry and loved the idea of keeping their front door open to enjoy the breeze while still keeping bugs at bay. The answer: sliding screened doors hung just inside the foyer, instead of outside the front entrance. Plus, the doors keep the entry and surrounding area open because there is no door swing.
Marked by an exterior central tower and a stone-covered portico, the entrance to Salado View heightens the anticipation of what awaits. As you pass through double 8-foot-tall mahogany doors with decorative ironwork, the brick flooring continues inside. Interior designers David Collum, Mary Collum, and Stephanie Latham mixed bricks in hues of tan, gray, and red to achieve a pleasing pattern on the floor. (Photo: Photo: Van Chaplin)
