2. Seeing Red
“This entry is bright, airy, high-energy and high-contrast,” architect Jimmy Crisp says of this modern farmhouse entry his team created with Chango & Co. interior design and Structure Works Construction.
The custom mahogany door with extra-large glazing and accompanying transom adds light and a view of the surrounding countryside. The bold red color on the door (Heritage Red by Benjamin Moore) gives off a modern vibe and the 11-foot ceilings elevate the space, Crisp says. The V-groove walls (painted in Decorator’s White by Benjamin Moore) and ceiling add texture and contrast against the dark-stained wood floors.
