About the Entry Hall
Walls painted a soothing shade of coastal blue create a warm welcome in the entry, where a beadboard-clad ceiling lends New England charm. A sisal-style durable hall rug leads to a cozy recessed daybed, where guests may sit and kick off shoes before entering the home's main living space. Floor-to-ceiling curtains, when drawn, create a napping cocoon. This "cozy focal point" and its surrounding accents, says interior designer Linda Woodrum, hint at the home's overall design scheme.
