Foyer – Jupiter, Florida
Beauty is not sacrificed in this residential interior. The foyer was designed to optimize the natural day lighting to minimize the need for artificial lighting during the daytime. A mosaic designed to mimic an area rug was made out of granite scraps from a local granite fabricator. No-voc and low-voc paints were used on the walls. Custom painted wallpaper was used on the ceiling, a design detail often neglected.
