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

Or consider using that wall space for some nicely done trimwork that really makes the doorway special.

Large ceilings with large entryways work best with large moldings, especially above the doorway. Chair rails 1/3rd up the wall also emphasive human scale and break up the long vertical space into layers

If you plan to use an 80-inch tall door, think of that space above the door as an opportunity for, say, some nicely done trim work that really makes the doorway special. The Difference Trim Can Make 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.

celing and trim
AFTER The same hallway, trimmed out with some thought and care, lures you to travel into the next room This was achieved by placing large-scale trim around the doorway, thereby reducing the extra wall space. The addition of a chair rail reinforces the scale of the room and provides another horizontal layer of space. Before there was nothing but a big, cubic volume of space. Now there's a series of layered spaces— all defined by trim elements.
