Style Scheme: Creating a Dramatic Entryway

July 7, 2016

First impressions count, so let your entryway make a real statement. Joshua Alan Carpluk shows us how to create a dramatic entryway, bringing together bold colors, geometric patterns, handcrafted pieces, and organic lighting.

THE SURFACES

“Chain Link, a luxurious and bold wallcovering from Phillip Jeffries, makes a perfect backdrop. The detail and color tie the furnishings and fixtures together into a cohesive feel. Deep-chocolate trim work and a high-gloss cream color on the ceiling add the final polish.”
