Hall of Fame...

This entry boasts a traditional hall table featuring fresh flowers that help bring the area alive. Beautiful artwork adds a special element. I love the way the light bounces off the gleaming hardwood floors. The contrast of dark and light works beautifully here.

The brass strips woven around steel create an unusual artful pattern in daylight. I love that this was thought out as part of the overall design. Modern and fresh the pattern is the art.

This traditional entry features a front door with stained glass elements. The runner helps guide one in to sit a spell or take off their shoes and stay awhile. The hall table is a great place to drop your keys or mail. Be sure to have a beautiful vessel for that purpose.

My current home is more traditional, but I can't help but love the clean lines and natural light in the modern entry hall. Instead of artwork, the windows "frame" nature that is sure to immediately relax visitors as they enter the home. The beautiful wood panel screen helps define the space giving it the effect of a greeting space.

I LOVE the window at the end of this hallway. Though it is not an entry per say, it is a great example of how one can "frame nature" with a window and create a light filled space. The runners are in 2 different patterns which breaks up the length of the hallway effectively without being choppy.
