To create the look and feel of an entryway although the home is completely lacking in one, a properly scaled console table was placed just inside the door to hold keys, mail and wallets. The space above is used to hold jackets, scarves and bags while the space below houses baskets for shoes, boots and pet supplies.
This spacious hallway features the perfect nook for a small home office, complete with a desk and brown leather chair. A peek over the wrought iron railing shows off several metal and glass pendant lights that illuminate the foyer below.
Cobalt-blue Moroccan-inspired rugs line this transitional hallway, adding color and style to the neutral space. The rugs also help to soften the hardwood floors, ensuring the space feels inviting and homey.
The second-floor hallway of the HGTV Dream Home 2014 features large windows that offer plenty of natural light as well as soft gray curtains should privacy be required. On the wall hangs a black and white oil painting of a vintage motorcycle ride.
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!
Cable lighting spotlights a line of simply framed, same-sized black-and-white photos along a stair landing, creating the effect of a mini gallery. Elaborate decoration on the base of the console table and a pair of silver candlesticks dress up the simple space.
Sideboard with style! This hallway becomes utilitarian with the addition of a traditional, embellished sideboard. Unique, contemporary sconces and a large, white art piece create a funky flair, making the space both fresh and elegant.
The interior of 21 Broad Hotel epitomizes a modern coastal vibe perfect for its Nantucket, Mass., setting. A vivid blue, green and yellow abstract acrylic-on-wood painting perfectly complements the blue rug and matching stair runner.
White trim against mocha walls turns this hallway into a work of art. Dark wood floors add elegance to the space that provides access to the powder room. Framed artwork elevates the space and gives it a gallery feel.
This traditional hallway is given an updated twist with a two-toned, patterned floor runner. The pink and blue hues are illuminated by natural light from the door at the end of the hall. The wood storage unit creates a warm look opposite the light wall and staircase.
The chandelier works overtime on the second floor by brightening the space and drawing attention to the ceiling. As they ascend the stairs, guests will have a hard time taking their eyes off of the feature.
From the hallway, guests can enjoy a glimpse of the living room and -- just beyond that -- the gorgeous lake views. Reclaimed wood beams and a stone accent wall bring in some natural texture and speak to the lake house's rustic location.
The stunning trompe l'oeil effect of this painting adds dimension and depth to this narrow walkway, making it appear larger. Simple, chrome sconces don't distract from the art, but give off just enough light to enjoy it.
