When Galit and her family moved into their current house five years ago, she didn’t know what to do with the large front hallway so she used various pieces from her old house just to fill up the space. Five years later, Galit is still stumped by the hallway.
She says, “I have this huge hallway that I’m trying to make more welcoming and homey. I don’t want it to feel like this cavernous place when guests come in the hall.”
Galit has a long list of projects for the hallway — buy new rugs, get rid of the country style mirror and small table, and possibly paint the walls — but she wants to start with a really great console or cabinet to replace the bench on the right. The wall there is 70″ long and over 9 feet tall. She would love some storage, but most of all Galit wants a piece that is the right scale and helps create a more pleasant hallway.
Here are her choices for the wall where the bench is currently:
Galit likes the warm color and storage that the Rojo 46″ Media Storage Cabinet offers but wonders if it is too small. She would put a painting or a large round mirror over it.
She also likes the Rojo Tall Cabinet, which is 54″ wide and 82″ tall. It’s only 16″ deep, but Galit doesn’t want to block too much of the view from the doorway.
Galit likes the warm wood tones of The Kavari 3-Door Cabinet, but again wonders if it will look too bulky.
Galit finds the simple clean lines and wood tones of the Marin Console Table appealing. It is is 60″ long.
The Kitaro 3-Drawer Console Table also appeals to her.
Galit’s final choice is the Antoinette Sideboard, which is 36″ high, 63″ wide and comes in a variety of paint and wood finishes. She is thinking walnut, but is not ruling out any of the colors.
Galit has some terrific choices. Which one do you think she should go for?
