Hallways are great places to integrate style into your home, but most people only think about wall color and art when considering how to decorate them. Instead of going for the standard gallery wall, try something different. Add interest through pattern and texture to draw you and your guests through the space in a wonderful way.
There's a lot of texture going on in this hallway: rough-hewn wood flooring, paneled wainscoting and a dimensional display of family photos. Yet, because of the neutral color palette, it doesn't look too busy.
A beautiful wood flooring pattern graces this sophisticated hallway. If you're planning on remodeling, a herringbone-pattern hardwood or parquet floor is a nice change from classic hardwood throughout the rest of the house and visually signifies a transition between spaces.
