No one would blame you if you mistook this Charleston home for a chic pied-a-terre in Paris or New York. Owner Janet Gregg is a world-traveler with a sophisticated design eye. She has transformed every nook and cranny of her stylish Charleston, South Carolina apartment into a feast for the eyes like this hallway lined with art and featuring two chairs for a pop of color and place to perch during one of her frequent cocktail parties.
Colors in this contemporary estate home are fun and adventurous, yet muted. In this space, a dusty blue door opens to reveal an earth-toned dining room layered with texture, color and interest. Shiplap walls give various spaces in the home a casual and homey vibe.
The white walls and wood floors of this hallway are given a contemporary flair with a display of art. A thin, gold table holds a circular flower vase and covers a crystal formation. Three glass cases display matching purple, pink, orange and neutral diamond cut-outs in rows. A yellow slate is covered in black font words and numbers to finish the art display.
An iron mirror with filigree pattern fills the wall space entering into this vibrant bedroom. A sconce light flanks the mirror to give added visual interest and bring more color to the space with a burnt orange candle.
From the inlaid marble floors to the elaborate groin vault ceiling, this traditional hallway exudes elegance and opulence. Rows of engaged columns frame large windows that bring in loads of natural light.
Gorgeous wood floors lend warmth to this home's hallways, especially paired with crisp white walls. The family room and hall bathroom feature different types of flooring to help differentiate the different spaces.
Green Hallway Infused With Asian-Inspired Elements
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.
Floating Staircase Includes Alcove With Built-In Storage
Wanting to give the homeowners' service dog, Rescue, a space of his own, the designer transformed the dead space beneath the stairs into a private, puppy-friendly alcove. Built-in storage allows for stocking treats and toys, while a buffet table down the hall displays the owners' personal mementos.
Plum, fuchsia and black may not be at the top of every manly man's favorite color list, but when properly balanced the outcome is just as well suited to Jack as it is Jill. The key to mixing these colors correctly is to vary the intensities of the pinks and purples, then use black to break up the two similar hues.
This hallway separates two guest rooms and ends abruptly with a window. It appears useless, but sculptures, including a spiderweb-shaped bronze piece, and orchids backed by an antique Korean chest transform the space into an interesting gallery.
