Before & After: Nashville Hallway

Happy Sunday!  Taking a little time today to share what we did with the main hallway that ran the length of our Nashville home.  The hallway was so long it almost felt like another room, but we knew we needed to break up the long space.  So I came up with the idea to install this arched bookcase.  
What we did.
-Came up with the design concept.
-Primed and Painted the arch "Polar Bear White" by Behr
-Painted the front hallway "Intellectual Gray" by Benjamin Moore.
-Painted the back part of the hallway "Worldly Grey" by Benjamin Moore.
-Painted all trim and doors "Polar Bear White" by Behr
-Updated light fixtures
What we paid someone to do.
-Install the bookshelves.
What we still wanted to do.
-We wanted to have a second arch put in towards the back of the hallway with a door to section off the master suite at the back of the house. 
-We wanted to drop a third light in to the middle of the hallway. 


  1. Ooh I love seeing what the place looked like before you put your touch on it. I always thought that the arch/bookshelves were original… great job!

  2. Wow, it looks so amazing. Everything you did really lengthened and opened the space up!

  3. I've never seen that before! So fabulous!
