love the wall color! A rich cocoa makes the small entryway seem grand. Black semigloss paint on the railing and accents of crisp white create a bold contrast, one of the keys to livening up a neutral palette.
Designer Frank Roop used an oversize tufted bench to add an “unexpected or dramatic” element to the entryway of this Boston-area colonial home. Oh how I will love the day I have a house with a staircase like this one.
