Hallway Inspiration

August 8, 2012

A defined entry has an important place in design. It should be welcoming, give a little hint of whats to come beyond the door and above all functional. 


When you move into a new place the possibilities seem endless and quite tangible, but then the newness wears off and you find yourself going day by day with things as they are. I think it takes a while of living somewhere to realize what problems there are to be solved and how to go about solving them. So its been a year and I have finally figured out how to remedy the little narrow hallway that leads into the house. (go here to see the paint before & after)


First I needed to understand what function the space had to serve…. storage, a place for shoes to go on and off, a spot for keys, extra light to shine into a dark closet and it all had to be 15″ wide or less. 


So a year later and I finally have a bit of inspiration for the space!








tray, decorative boxes, lamp, console, storage, stool, basket

i am loving the way this collection of glass is tucked away but illuminated in a big way! so clever and simple and terrific at drawing attention to your favorite collection with out putting it in a stuffy old cabinet – and i love how its like an interlude for your hallway. a placement thats a bit unexpected!!!
