We have a very long hallway in our home.
At one end is our master bedroom and at the other end is the den/office. In between is another bedroom, the laundry closet, the powder room and the linen closet.
Thank goodness the other side of the hallway is all windows!
We installed bamboo blinds and ivory colored raw silk curtain panels on the windows to frame the view which looks out onto our walkway.
I'm very grateful for those windows because even though our hallway is somewhat narrow it appears much more open and spacious.
I've kept the walls fairly uncluttered but since relocating the large beach painting which formerly occupied the largest expanse of wall space in the hallway, and can be seen from our garage/man cave, I needed to come up with something new.
Originally I had a family photo gallery similar to this one and felt it was time to bring it back.
I've always thought hallways were the perfect place to showcase intimate family photos.
My mom suggested that I hang a piece of sculptural art which got me thinking about the shell type tray I created a few years ago always hoping one day to find the perfect spot to showcase it.
Our long hallway jags a bit which gives the section near the den a bit more privacy and therefore perfect for a family montage.
I'm still working on the composition and have 3 more to fit in but so far I'm really liking the way it looks not only from the inside, but also from the outside looking in!
The following photos show some close-up shots of the shells and tiny treasures I collected.
I'm really happy with the new look.
What do you think?
