High Contrast Hallway

A boldly striped floor adds impact.

"This is a great example of using architectural language to maintain a hierarchy of spaces," says Nicky Haslam, principal and founder of NH Design. "The double doors leading into the salon are grander, and black and white, while the secondary doors have less detail, and are simply white. This is a wonderfully simple space that still manages to be glamorous."
