Recently I re-read “Rose Cumming: Design Inspirations.”
This book, about one of the pioneers of a “new” field called interior design, was a gift from my friend Erica for my birthday last year.
The following quote from Ms. Cumming jumped out at me: “I feel that upon entering a house one should at once be made conscious of the dominate note pervading its scheme of decoration.”
I was just speaking with a friend regarding how sometimes hallways are neglected spaces.
I agree with Ms. Cumming. A hallway shouldn’t be a dumping ground for keys, shoes, etc.
If you live in a small space you could create a hallway that’s functional and stylish.
Here are three fab hallways:
How gorgeous is this staircase? I love the contrast of the very dark wood with the white paint.

Designer Rita Konig’s kitchen is a perfect example of a hallway serving more than one purpose.
A hallway is a great space to showcase art.
