Bringing a Hallway to Life
Decorative elements can liven up any space. Add an architectural feature such as a bookcase, and you'll really have something to brag about.
Custom carpeting enhances the hallway by adding softness and color. Architectural fragments hung next to the bookcase and above one of the bedroom doors tie the space together. The black-and-white color scheme is inspired by the toile wallpaper in an adjacent bath.
Carpet Shopping Tips
• Consider where the carpet will go. Is it a high or low-traffic area? Use different densities for different rooms.
• Take along color chips of wall and trim colors, as well as samples of wallpaper and fabrics from upholstered furniture.
• Once you have narrowed down your selection, take sizable (12-inch-square) samples home. Look at them during the day and at night.
