There are so many things I love about this picture. From the dutch door to the custom iron newel post on the stairs. I could literally point out so many details within this one picture...too many for anyone to want to read. So, I'll just focus on a few. The utilization of space under the stairs is genius. No one uses that space and it is such a great way to get a little extra storage out of an otherwise underutilized area. The shiplap siding used on the walls of the interior of the house is such a creative way to give character to the space. It provides a great casual feel that I think is really cool. The use of brick in this secondary entryway is a durable alternative to slate or tile. I am always a fan, said it a ton of times before, of bringing a traditionally exterior material to the interior of a house. And, the color they chose is a great compliment to the black and white of the rest of the room.
