Timeless Entryway

Mix white painted paneling with a dark ceiling and trim for a fresh, nautical look in an entrance.

A brass ship's lantern and vintage cane-backed settee provide balance to the staircase's crisp palette, while a woven runner and David Hicks' graphic patterned door mat add texture and softness. The dark wood and white palette looks modern, but still nods to Colonial style.
