11 Entryways, Hallways & Landings With Style In Spades
When it comes to decorating, transitional spaces are easily overlooked. But why should living rooms and kitchens get all the love? Consider this: entryways, hallways and landings stand to make a captivating impact and deserve the considered attention other spaces receive.
From the moment you walk through the door, an impression is made. Make it a beautiful one by amping up a drop zone for keys, coats and mail with color, pattern and clever storage. A ho-hum, bare-walled passageway can be transformed into a gallery or library. Even a landing or the end of a hall can become an eye-catching design moment with a few well-chosen details.
