If your home is more contemporary, and rustic materials like aged wood won’t work with your sleek finishes, you can still add texture through other means, such as lighting. The Moooi light fixtures here are made of a resin-coated fiberglass that creates a lacy filigree pattern when lit.

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Just a Sliver (of Window), PleaseDec 9, 2013

Below Eye LevelBy locating these sliver windows significantly below eye level, the architects have maintained a connection to the outdoors, provided natural lighting to the hallway and directed the interior-exterior sight lines toward the ground. This is done intentionally to change the eye’s focus toward the other elements in the hallway and direct movement. The bold lighting and the destination — a brightly colored door — receive the most attention as a result. The sliver windows create a well-lit pathway to follow and an eye-catching linear shelf of contrasting wood that bounces light vertically to warm the white hallway. The lowered natural horizon point also makes the hallway naturally feel taller.Effects: Encourage movement; create mystery and a highly controlled experience.

What better way to force the eye upward than creating an installation of gorgeous Random Lights?

The wide sill on this thin strip of window could hold books or other items to bring a bit of storage to the hallway without overwhelming the tight space.
