Need help decorating second floor landing..............
August 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is what you see when you get to the top of the stairs to the second floor. There are two bedrooms, a bonus room and a bathroom on this floor. How can I make this landing more warm and welcoming?

Maybe turn this little cabinet so it is on the wall with the outlet and put a fun little slipper chair in that corner. Try a gallery wall behind the cabinet of family members?

You can try a high plant were the little cabinet is with a painting on the wall in front of the doors .

How about if I were not using the little cabinet or the lamp - if it were a blank space.

Brown leather bench with some pillows on it. Little spot to sit for a spell and maybe even set things down.

I suggest a wall mounted fireplace on the side wall and a chair with throw and pouf next to the door.

I think it is important that the walkway be unobstructed, and that the two walls tightly relate in order to knit them into your welcoming space. A chair can welcome, but needs a view to keep it from looking like hall detention. Artwork might also be used instead of the fireplace on the side wall, but as a visually weightier choice, it should be repeated on the back wall to keep focus centered.

I don't think the cute little chest really goes in that area. It's just not the right proportion. I do love the picture that indianpatti posted and abbyjeans ideas of a gallery and bench.

I agree with a bench along the long wall and something tall in the corner... A plant or a floor vase with branches.
