Glam Entry
Project Description
We’re in the process of working through our house but didn’t really have a thought for the entry room to our home. In fact, this has been a real design challenge for my little head. The room is essentially a 16’ square with an 18’ ceiling. This entry room is “embedded” into the house. From the outside, the room appears like a tower with malled windows across the entire top portion of the room. The windows allow for wonderful lighting throughout the day and a nice look at the moon and stars at night. The front door to the house enters directly into this room. At the opposite end from the front door, are left and right flanking doorways that lead into the interior of the house.

We want to maintain the wall color because our initial intent was to keep the interior of the house all one color—a new change for us.

I've included photos of all of the adjacent spaces, along with photos of the finishes in this space. I can mail my finishes to the winning designer so that he/she can see everything together.

What do you currently dislike about the room?
I find this space very challenging. It feels odd and disconnected to the adjacent spaces. We want to warm things up.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
Additionally, we would like to keep the single- crystal chandelier and the wall sconces. Both the chandelier and sconces have an option for lamp shades as an accessorizing option.

We am currently looking at 3 different rugs, ONLY if you think these have potential. We travel some and these remind us places we’ve been.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Are you open to changing your floor covering?

Additional comments to designers
A little about us -- we like low maintenance living. There are only two of us and we don’t “hit the house very hard” as far as living in it goes. Like most couples, we rarely have occasion to stray outside of the kitchen and den areas. I’ve taken a number of “style” tests for which results would describe our preferred style as traditional, traditional-transitional and traditional-modern.

The rug shown in the photos is a temporary mud rug for the workers.

Since your room is smaller using a light and pale color will enhance the light and the space in your room

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use a satin finish paint which has a bit more gloss than eggshell finish and is a little smoother. This finish is often used for windows, doors, trim, and ceilings, but can also be ideal walls in kids’ rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and other high-traffic areas because it is easier to clean than eggshell finish.
