Hallways can be pretty bland and boring, but not these ones! Check out these amazing hallways from Houzz.com. From traditional to modern, hallways are a great way to express yourself by using mirrors, tables, art, pictures, sculptures, etc! Which one do you like best? Tell us! We LOVE #1, #7 and #10!

    I prefer groin-vault hallways or hallways that can double as rooms, but the one in photo 8 is a bit drab. One of the better ones I’ve seen is…wait for it…La Reverie. I guess it qualifies more as a room than a hallway. Also some other stunners (sorry they’re all Palm Beach, but I’m biased).

    La Reverie:

    Another stunner is the 60 Blossom Way house by Peter Marino. The dark wood is beyond gorgeous:

    Or for groin-vault, home #2

    Finally, the Janssen-designed Montsorrel:

    Out of the ones above, I think I’d go for #12.

    I like La Reverie except for that awful stairway. It looks like a little kid got carried away with a black crayon or a sharpie or something and drew all over the walls leading up the stairway. That looks a HOT MESS!!!!

    Another thing. I hate how the mix the traditional classical look with that awful contemporary look in La Reverie. I thought this was a classical traditional french type home from the photos I’ve seen before. Those contemporary elements ruin the whole house.

      I disagree. I think the contemporary elements are a wonderful way to make the home look livable and not like some stale, overpowering museum (Fleur de Lys). The dramatic textures used throughout are fantastic, and I especially love the bathroom. Gorgeous.

      Regarding the stairway, those are supposed to look like strands of hair, which is homage to Sydell Miller’s background as founder of Matrix, a company that still manufactures and distributes shampoo and other cosmetics to this day (I think the company was bought by Revlon, but don’t quote me on that). In his coffee table book Palm Beach Splendor, Jeff Smith highlights La Reverie and I assure the effect looks very neat.

        Just checked, it’s part of L’Oreal, not Revlon.

    La Reverie is one of the few quality contemporary homes I have seen. It has nice custom cabinetry and moldings but I just don’t usually like contemporary homes. But it looks way better than that awful contemporary Mohamed Hadid home in Beverly Hills. I also like the Portabello Estate and that John Lautner designed Malibu home that Courtney Cox sold a few years back. And I like The Glass Pavillion located in the Montecito area of California. The Glass Pavillion is kinda simple but it has a unique look about it and it is in an amazing location, amazing grounds, and amazing views. Those are some of the few contemporary homes that I like.

    Kind of hard to judge just hallways. I guess I like the long gallery like hallways. I suppose the perfect hallway would be like those they have in Buckingham Palace and Windsor or Versailles. Long galleries filled with art or mirrors.

    Get floor plans and do a write up on the full floor penthouses at Walker Tower in Chelsea New York City. This is by far the most gorgeous building I have seen in NYC. The finishes and design are way better the 15 CPW.
