Sea green walls create a soft frame in the natural light of this staircase hallway. A warm yellow lampshade over the table lamp draws out the yellow coloring of the stain glass trim surrounding the windows. A wood table fills the space and provides support for a simple display to decorate the area.
Soothing green wallpaper covered in butterflies makes venturing to the end of this hallway an enlightening experience. A multicolored tapestry and rug soften the space, while a curved Asian-style chair by the window provides a seat for self-reflection.
In this Asian-inspired hallway, sea green wallpaper covered with trees, birds and flowers encourages peace and tranquility. Round pendant lights above create visual interest, while identical drawers and mirrors create symmetry and balance.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
A rustic stone floor leads to an elegant sitting area with a grand gold mirror. A country-style wood table is accessorized with a mix of tabletop topiaries, succulents and flowers, creating a more casual feel in contrast to the ornate gold mirror.
This lively hallway boasts floor-to-ceiling hand-painted murals, featuring crystal blue skies and dreamy bodies of water. Dark brown moldings accentuate the traditional tray ceiling, while a wrought iron railing leads the way to the staircase.
A windowless hallway need not be overlooked when it comes to good design. Cynthia Spence sought to bring in the textures of the ocean with Holly Hunt cotton velvet wallcoverings and a faux bois textured tin ceiling in the main floor vestibule at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. An Art Deco architectural grill conceals an electrical panel.
The progression of the rooms across the back of the house is viewed from the living room through the dining room and into the breakfast room at the rear. The outstanding millwork and plasterwork are accented with green tones and lavish wallpaper.
