I am having some difficulties with the finishing touches of my L shaped hallway in my apartment. Not sure what direction to take for the lights, wall colour and how or if I should fill the empty wall spaces.
My hallway has no window so the only light source is when I leave the doors opened or switch on the lights. It is because of this that I am unsure of how to decorate it.I want it to be light and airy.
I have included pictures of how my L shaped hallway looks when the doors are closed and opened. Also some inspirational pictures. Thanking you in advance with any feedback or suggestions you may have.
View of the hallway with doors opened and lights off. Any suggestions for the empty wall space at the far end?
View from the front door on the other side of the hallway when all the doors are opened and the light is off. I want to put a bench on the opposite wall of the heater,as seating for when putting on or taking off shoes when you come in.
View of the hallway when all the doors are closed and the light is on. There are two lights in the hallway and this is one of them.
View of the front door on the other side of the hallway with all the doors closed and the lights on.This is the other light in the hallway. I want to put calligraphy art above the bench on the opposite wall of the heater.
This is the view when standing in front of the front door when you first Walk into the apartment. This is with the doors opened and lights off. I intend to do a built-in with mirrored sliding doors in this alcove.
Inspiration for the two light fixtures in the hallway. I want a light fixture that mounts onto the ceiling as the ceiling is low.
Inspiration for the bench in the hallway. A narrow bench with similar wood colour.
Inspiration for the wall colour as my doors are white and the skirting boards too.
Another inspiration for the wall colour. I am not sure which direction to go,can I use a dark colour or should I stick to a light colour taking into consideration that there is no window in the hallway to let in natural light.I want the space to feel light and airy.
