Inspiration: Hallways

Many times when we take on projects, clients are looking to enhance the major rooms in their home - the ones they feel the most time is spent. But there are areas in our home that we use every single day that are overlooked far too often - the powder bath, closet, and especially hallways. There are major design upgrades that can easily be done here and most times super inexpensively, and in very little time. Many times, hallways are adorned with a piece or large art, maybe a bench - if that. There are statements to be had here and so many ways to bring your hallway up to par with the rest of your home. See some our faves below:
