Taking its cue from the beautiful surroundings this modern luxury home does not disappoint even when it comes to a simple hallway. This glass enclosed hall opens out to both the home's elegant foothill views as well as a lushly landscaped back terrace depending on how you wish to enjoy your time outdoors.
Stylist Matthew Mead adds a simple stand, decked with a potted evergreen (later to grace the outdoors) and dotted with silver accessories, to spruce up the hallway or any overlooked nook in need of holiday cheer. Photo courtesy of Matthew Mead.
An eclectic hallway provides a transition from this contemporary home's kitchen to its outdoor space. French doors welcome in light, needed to counteract the darkness of the black wood floors. Quirky touches include the taxidermy busts and blue pendant lights.
Think of your outdoor space as an extension of your home. This thoughtfully designed backyard is an excellent example. Here, a Douglas fir pergola provides structure over the back patio, while the composite decking connects the entries of the house acting as an outdoor hallway.
Mixed styles create a wonderful result: The midcentury modern angles of the room; the lofty, coastal-style, plank-and-beam ceilings; a craftsman-style cabinet and an animal hide rug reflect the homeowner's unique style and personality. This hall leads to a lovely outdoor seating area -- It would be hard to decide whether to stay inside or out!
This Bend, Oregon home features incredible architectural detail and stunning design. The glass wall in the hallway visually divides the indoor-outdoor space, while the modern concrete flooring and accent stones appear as if the space continues onto the patio.
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
Traditional European antiques coordinate perfectly with the Spanish architecture of this house, which includes textured plaster walls and arched hallways. A tall potted palm brings the outdoors in while adding a hint of tropical charm.
The flooring in this hallway is created from noche travertine stone tiles laid in a staggered brick pattern. Although they're originally intended for outdoor use, the designer liked the casual character the material brought to this interior space.
A Walker Zanger porcelain tile floor in a honeycomb pattern embraces a stone-like palette that's echoed in the hallway and outdoor terrace beyond this powder room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Hardware and lighting adds a luxe twist to the otherwise natural, bohemian vibe.
A special resting place was created in a second floor hallway that leads to an outdoor balcony overlooking this Houston estate. Oversized chairs, a wood pedestal center table, brass side tables and abstract artwork complement the antique wool area rug and custom draperies in a pink Ikat print.
This minimalistic office is positioned in the sun-drenched hallway, directly in front of wall-to-wall windows that provide a gorgeous view of the outdoor areas. A taupe leather armchair is paired with a built-in desk, while double doors open to the master bedroom. A skylight overhead provides more natural light.
