The foyer or hallway sets the tone for the house, but is often a neglected space. Debbie Travis, host of the popular public television series Painted House, transforms one such dead space into a tropical wonderland. Like all her projects, this one can be completed in a weekend. The metamorphosis starts with hand-painted vines, with their tendrils running the length of the hall. A painted sisal runner brightens the floor. A faux window frames a trompe l'oeil seascape. A walk through the doorway, and one enters the tropics.
