{my favorite use of hallway space}

Over time I've come to realize that my ALL-time favorite way to create interest in the hallway is the use of bookcases!! Pictures of hallways lined with books always catch my eye. A definite must for my dream home one day ...

Ahhh, a ladder & sconces?? Yes please! One day ...
 
 
Not to mention those herringbone floors, wowhee! Happy Friday everyone, hope you have a lovely weekend.

So gorgeous! Wouldn't it be fun collecting all those books?

I agree, it's a great way to fill up the empty hallways! And like Cicero said - "A room without books is like a body without soul". ;)

Wish I had the space in my hall for this! I would love a rolling ladder one day too. Happy friday!

Oooh, I like it! Yes, I think a hallway of bookcases would be divine!

Hope life is treating you well? I think of you often while I am up late planning lessons.

Lovely inspiration pics. Bookcases seem to elevate the look of any room and what better way to make use of dead space in a hallway!

It is stunning and if you didn't have a great collection of books then you could always fudge it and invest in a great alternative seen here!

...and this is the reason why I still buy actually books. It's just something about the touch and smell of a good book. This is so functional. My dream house would have a pretty looking library complete with ladder in my kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration!
