before and after

This bland and boring foyer gets a makeover. The subtle toneon tone in the this foyer are actually making it more busy without any real definition.  And the carpet seems a bit worn ready for a redo. And there is not layering of color or texture.


Simple addition of some definition to the upper part of the wainscoting makes all the difference. The warm orange color transforms the room and keeping the base a light white keeps the eye moving up and making the room feel taller. The more modern stripe rugs looks like it would really disguise some dirt and the roman shade softens the window while adding some pattern to the room.

    Can you please tell me the brand of the rust/orange colored grasscloth in the after picture of the foyer with the stairs? It is simply amazing and I’d like to use it in my den.

    Thank you very much,
