Midday Muse: Heed to Your Hallway

I often feel that hallways are the most ignored spaces in our homes. If anything, we paint the walls, hang a photograph or piece of artwork, and set a console table there with a lamp. And "landing strips" are neither inventive nor novel; they're just something that evolves when we ditch our stuff at the front door. So, it's nice to see a little creativity in the hallway every now and then. I'm quite impressed by these two hallway images from Living Etc. In one, a quirky tree-shaped coat rack personifies the space, a vintage boot stand is interesting yet functional, and a glass display table makes odds and ends look decorative rather than messy. In the other, using a garden trellis to hang keys, coats, postcards, and pictures, and dragging the fur rug out of the living room, is thinking outside of the box. I know there are some of you who prefer to have traditional, formal homes . . . but even then, why not infuse them with a personality? Your hallways and foyers are the first impression your guests have when they come to your home, and the last when they leave; make them memorable.

I can't wait until we have a home we own that I can decorate- I have a whole "file" in Journler filled with inspiration for a foyer. These pics are going in too.
