Favorite Spaces Series: Foyers

“You Had Me at Hello”. Foyers set the tone for a home and greet you the moment you walk in.  They give the visitor a moment to pause and to wonder what is inside.  As part of my favorite spaces series, I thought I would share a couple of my favorites with you:

Classic Foyer

It’s all in the details:  fabulous entry doors, gleaming hardwood floors, and gorgeous columns offered a quiet glimpse of what was inside.  Very special.

Old Cutler Foyer

 

 

 

 

 

This Coral Gables estate is pure drama once you step inside the doors.  The dual sweeping staircases, chandelier, and volume ceiling allow a peak into a privileged life.

Zen Foyer

 

Nothing says warmth like wood and this foyer was no exception…

 

Snapper Creek Lakes Foyer

Brazilian cherry wood floors with marble inlay, an impressive front door, chair rails and crown moldings…the rest of the home was just as beautiful in its details.  It took this family two years and umpteen craftsmen to finish the house.  No one says it will be easy….

 

Coconut Grove Eccentric Foyer

The unicycle and the bench scream whimsy in this 1920’s Coconut Grove home.  In typical Coconut Grove style, the house is casual and informal and never disappoints as you turn each corner.

 

Old Spanish Foyer

Old Spanish never gets old.  It is timeless.  I sold this home in 5 days.  This foyer was just one of the reasons it sold so quickly.
