Every home, regardless of size, needs a fabulous entry. Whether it's a tiny console table or a grand chandelier, the entryway sets a mood for the home. This space originally had low ceilings and no wow factor. We opened the ceiling and added a statement light fixture, awesome striped runner and floor-to-ceiling paneling. The paneling was decided at the very last minute and thankfully the trim guys had just started (I'm sure they were so stoked for me to add something else to their list)!

Textural grasscloth, chevron floors, dark gray built-ins and loads of collected accessories...we loved the opportunity to design a more manly space than usual!
It's really incredible what you can do with the exact same square footage:
