"You can make a statement by how you dress,” muses Ralph Lauren. “Clothes are really part of an expression; they make a statement about you. It’s sort of an introduction.” Entry ways, or often hallways, serve a similar purpose in your own home. A mere introduction, of sorts, for first impressions and glimpses into one’s character. Often it is an accumulation of the denizen’s routines and leisurely pursuits: Wellies for post-storm strolls, clubs within arm’s reach for the range, umbrellas for spring showers...a makeshift, yet functional, still-life. Because my hallway is quite narrow, I keep it tidy yet ground on a threadbare Persian runner. I dress my home like I dress myself—layers, colors, and a little something off. What does your hallway say about you?
