I love living in our old farmhouse. Sometimes I find myself marveling at some of the little details that you don’t find in modern houses. Some are for practical reasons, like the wall cutout that goes up the stairs for heating. Others are just decorative, though, like the well-designed hallway that joins the kitchen to the dining room.
This hallways is intimate with lower ceilings and wall projections that create small nooks for built-ins. It almost feels like you’re being embraced as you walk down it. It’s not showy or grand, but it’s well-designed, cozy, and full of character.
At the end of the hallway, I created a focal point with some artwork that I made and a library light over it. It’s my favorite part of my home, and it always makes me happy walking down it.
I guess it epitomizes one of my favorite quotes: “Love grows best in little houses, with fewer walls to separate. Where you eat and sleep so close together you can’t help but communicate. And if we had more room between us, think of all we’d miss. Love grows best with houses just like this.”
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
