Project 6D: Hallway

BEFORE             &              AFTER 
Entrance leads to this section of the hallway which connects to the kitchen, three storage closets, and the study.

H's grandfather carved the three angel on the upper right corner.
The family crests and  our zodiac signs were H's mother's works.

BEFORE             &              AFTER 
The end of the hallway connects to the master bedroom and leads to the bathroom.

To enlarge the small bathroom,
we moved the bathroom door and shorten the hallway in this section.

I was really happy to have found this adorable ceiling light for the hallways.
It is a reproduction of the schoolhouse-style shade from the era of 1925 to 1935 with a twist of hand-painted stripes.

The dark rich cocoa color paint matched the wallpaper on the accent wall at the entrance. 
I wanted a bold color in the hallway to be the backdrop of all the paintings and photos we put up, 
and to be the contrast to the rest of the apartment which is light and airy with plenty of sunlight. 
It was a risky decision, and I was nervous about how it would turned out.
I am relieved to say that I like it.  Do you?
