Hello, all! It's Mari, here from Arcadian Lighting, the online place to find fabulous lighting fixtures of all kinds. I'm so excited to be visiting Behold the Metatron, with a guest post about decorating the hallway. Often neglected when it comes to decorating, hallways are considered (if they're considered at all) as passage ways to more visually interesting rooms. But, these narrow spaces are perfect for beautiful vignettes that show off personal style. They can also be turned into lovely galleries of art or photographs. Here are eight of our favorite hallways. Please enjoy!
Peaceful and harmonious, this lovely entry hall combines classic furnishings with casual styling. The woven baskets are unexpected but work well in the space.
Rustic meets traditional is this wide hallway. An eclectic group of decorative elements surrounds a narrow table created from a reclaimed tree trunk. Though diverse in their style, unframed art, coastal pieces and hammered metal vessels merge in one beautiful vignette.
A gallery wall of photographic art decorates this pale green hallway. Frames in a multitude of sizes, colors and materials make for an even more interesting display.
A staircase landing at the end of a narrow hallway offers a lovely light-filled space for this simple but beautiful eclectic vignette. I love the contemporary white light fixtures and the pale wood flooring.
What an interesting collection of furnishings and accessories this is. From the acrylic stool to the sophisticated floor lamps with the crisp black and white shades, this hallway grouping offers lots of eye candy for the passerby.
White framed and matted art in colorful hues seems the perfection choice for this white hallway. The bright colors bring such a happy vibe to the space.
In a lovely combination of contemporary and traditional, this short hallway is anything but bland and uninteresting. The ornate antique lighting fixture adds a jolt of the ornate.
A gallery wall of vintage photographs and subway signs in black and white is arranged above a long antique cabinet in this hallway with gray walls and what appears to be tin ceiling. White lamps and decorative objects along with tiny green topiaries lighten up the space. It's such a pretty vintage look. †Images†1†|†2†|†3†|†4†|†5†|†6†|†7†|†8
