Thank you for reporting this. Undo

Hi there, this chandelier was a purchase by the homeowner, so I'm not sure where it is from. If I find out I will post. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Here's the same hallway trimmed out with some thought and care. The large-scale moldings above the doors eliminate all that extra wall space and reinforce the importance of traveling from room to room. The addition of the chair rail reinforces the scale of the human body and provides another horizontal layer of space. While there was nothing but a big, cubic volume of space before, now there's a series of layered spaces all defined by trim elements.See more Houzz guides on using trim
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Top 10 Solutions for Architectural Peeves
Or consider using that wall space for some nicely done trimwork that really makes the doorway special.
