Don’t Forget the Hallway

Too often a hallway is treated like a neglected cousin. In doing so a tremendous opportunity may be overlooked.

That ‘lead-up’ that a hallway provides from an entry or transition to another part of the home has the ability to set a tone or build up excitement of what is to come. Hallways also create pauses between rooms. Properly decorated, they can even present as narrower rooms instead of wasted space.

Smaller art pieces are perfectly suited to this setting. A collection of family/friend photos works well too, especially artfully displayed. Hallways are decorating opportunities, not unusable annoyances.
