Before and After - Traditional Home "Terry" Showhouse - Mickey Sharpe and Jennifer Hutton

I hope you are enjoying the "before" and "after" photos fo the Traditional Home Randall B. Terry House.  Today's transformation feature is the downstairs and upstairs hallway but Mickey Sharpe and Jennifer Hutton

The Terry House features a central stairway that serves as a gateway to the house connecting the bottom and top floors.  Mickey and Jennifer paint the walls Pratt and Lambert "anthracite" which is a sexy, smoldering charcoal grey that adds glamor and mystery to the hallway and blended with the other rooms beautifully.  Anthracite is such a great background color for showcasing the art and anchoring the furniture in the hallway.

My favorite feature of this area was the art, which was a single acrylic painting  divided and framed into nine individual paintings and hung gallery style over a console in the hallway. Acid green chairs, flanking the console provided a pop of color and drama.  Egolomise' mirrors on either side of the art expand the hallway and add light.  The old carpet was replaced with a new Stanton geometric patterned carpet which added pattern and interest to the stairway.

 Are you ready to see the before?

 Jennifer and Mickey also transformed the upstairs hallway with new lighting, interesting accessories for the bookshelves and continued the anthracite paint to the upper hallway.  The back of the shelves was lined in metallic grasscloth to add texture to the shelves.  This is the perfect example of how a few tweaks can provide huge results when done the right way.


 I hope you enjoyed our little "before" and "after" tour today.  If you have questions for Mickey and Jennifer about their hallways, you can connect with Mickey here and Jennifer here.
