{Our Hallway}

Let me show you the next finished project, inside our home. Husband Pieter, did also change the wooden baseboard in our hallway into a tiled one. These white tiles for the bathrooms, kitchen, veranda and hallway came back with us from Italy in a 40-foot container with all our belongings. Life in Italy was over as we did not build our home in Italy but went back to Georgia/USA. Okay, welcome into our hallway!
From the front door you face the dining room to the left and straight ahead is the living room.
The white ceramic chandelier from Italy you can find below this post in a previous post's link.
Those white tiles are from Italy, we bought them at the time we worked and lived there. 
When we did not construct the house in Italy, we did bring everything back to Georgia/USA.
Here you see husband Pieter's work; a tile baseboard after he removed the wooden one.
This is nice glossy and a lot easier for cleaning and it looks better with the tiles in this room.
Turning now back towards the front door, past the dining room door.
You cannot see my French DMC Rose Filet Lace Crocheted Curtains here, due to the glare.
But in the link below this post you can view them. By the way, that is my 3rd most viewed post!
Our French oak coat rack with chest.
Looking all the way to the end of the hallway, where our master bedroom is. 
First door is to the staircase, next door is a closet where we keep our winter coats and boots.
Next is the office (you recently saw a post about it) and last door is the guest bedroom (you also got to see that).
Stepping halfway down the hallway you can see the office door to the right and guest bedroom next with the master bedroom straight ahead.
These beautiful Ipomoeas in blue (Pieter's favorite color - which he CAN distinguish very well) are done by my sister Diny Van den Munckhof, in 2004.
The brass plate with peacock was a gift to Pieter when he was still principal at the practical training college in The Netherlands.
Sister Diny's artwork...
Frame is by Irok gallery, our favorite as they do museum quality framing.
Looking back to the closet where we keep our coats and boots and the door to the staircase.
Looking to the right you see a row of  10 hand painted wild mushroom plates by A. Zen Nove, ITALY.
That was a gift from our company in Italy. They had each year a different one painted by this artist in a limited numbered edition of 100. See link below post for more details.
Three Royal Tichelaar Makkum pieces in polychrome.
Made by the The Netherland's oldest company and framed in French oak.
Royal Tichelaar Makkum wall plate in polychrome.
This photo is taken from the door opening of the master bedroom.
To the right you see our bi-fold closet which I did show in a previous post: My closet looks like a neat store - see below post.
the next door is a closet where we keep albums and the vacuum cleaner and such.
A bit more recessed is the door to the guest bathroom, that you recently saw in a post.
Turning towards the master bedroom door.
These hand embroidered wild mushrooms in cross stitch, I made long time ago and they hung in the office of Principal Pieter at his practical training college for mushroom growing.
Looking up to the ceiling where a foldout staircase leads to the attic.
THAT will be another project...
Hope you enjoyed the tour!

      Thanks; glad you like it. Oh we always loved our French doors! It makes all the difference for having light in a room. Except for our bedrooms, bathrooms and closets we got others... Just stay tuned and I will show you.
      Happy weekend to you.

  8. Hello Mariette, The lamp looks beautiful, and Italian tiles have a special effect on your home, they look beautiful! Here in the constructions of households use Italian and Spanish tiles. In decades ago in my country all or nearly all structures were of wood, but being in an area prone to hurricanes and other climatic phenomena, changed the ways of building homes etc. I looks beautiful earthenware, as you say it is much easier to clean! and looks beautiful! You have many details with memories and very significant, but my favorites today are the mushrooms that you have made and framed cross-stitch! is significant for your work, and you were beautiful! Hugs, and thanks for sharing! Rose Marie

      Thanks for your compliments. Yes in our entire home we have but Italian and Spanish tiles too. It is beautiful plus hygienic and practical! Such fine cross-stitch I did a lot more in my younger days.

  9. Magnificent work! The tiles from Italy and white baseboards really enhance the space. Your husbands project is quite impressive! All the little accents like the hand painted plate, your sister's painting and hand embroidered mushroom pieces are such special touches and truly make for an exquisite look. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your attic!

    1. Dearest Julie,
      Thanks for your compliment! Hard work always pays off. It is so rewarding after all the hard labor; being for hours on your knees. I had to clean the baseboard after Pieter got done but it all shines and is easy to clean. A home is all about special and personal touches. Far better than copying some magazine that does not reflect the owner(s).
      Hugs to you and happy weekend.

      Good afternoon Ayu,
      Thanks for your visit here. Yes, those French doors (with glass) are very beautiful. Also the others in the long corridor. Yes, my Pieter can actually do everything himself. That is a great blessing. Best wishes for you and your baby, hope all is okay. Enjoy the summer with the kids and your husband.

  11. Je hal en gang ziet er lekker fris en koel uit Mariette... Mooi ook al die hand-en kunstwerken aan de muur.
    Je zus kan echt wel ontzettend mooi schilderen, en ik kreeg een glimlach bij de foto van je voordeur...die paraplubak...daar staat geen enkele paraplu in, maar wandelstokken.
    Paraplu's heb je daar niet nodig denk ik...hier is het andersom, de wandelstokken ergens in de kast en de plu's binnen handbereik.

    1. Beste Marian,
      Dank je en ook voor het compliment over mijn zus haar talent!
      Die paraplubak dat klopt inderdaad maar onze gróte paraplu's liggen n.l. in de auto! Daar heb je ze nodig omdat je uit de auto op parkeerplaatsen door de zware regen moet vluchten. Fietsen door de regen doe je hier niet en zeker niet wandelen. Het zijn zó'n harde tropische buien, dat zou gewoon pijn doen.
      Wij hebben niet vaak een bui maar àls dan is het ook enorm. Diezelfde zus die zo mooi schildert was hier op vakantie in juli en kon niet eens met mijn man en haar man vanuit het tuinprieeltje naar binnen komen. Zó enorm gaat dat te keer; ze moesten gewoon blijven zitten en afwachten tot het over was. Ik was toen binnen en heb hun gefilmd hoe ze naar het midden toe moesten huddelen om uit die slagregen te staan.
      Lieve groetjes,
      Mariette

  14. Dearest Mariette ... I always enjoy your home tours. Each living space is created with so much thought, love, care and is truly inspiring. The tile baseboards look brilliant (great choice to replace the wood). I love the small touches such as your sister's painting, the mushroom plates that hold so many memories for you and Pieter ~ really that is what life is about creating wonderful memories that will travel with us on life's journey. Many hugs and blessings to you both... and an extra little hug for Pieter on this Father's Day. xo C. (HHL)

      Glad you enjoy them! The way we have created our interior is a reflection of our lives. My sister's painting is a perfect touch to look at every day, many times and also friend Lei's that hangs next to it. Many special gifts from special people. Memories are food for our souls forever.
      Hugs and blessings to both of you and thanks for the extra hug. Pieter is a proud Dad and he just received such a meaningful message from his daughter...

    As usual, you have taken what could have been a very utilitarian space and made it into an elegant and welcoming area.

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Thank you Karen for stopping by and giving your approval and compliments. Those baseboards are a lot easier to keep clean and it is more the Old World style. The older we get, the more we go for practical ways. My sister's artwork is indeed very lovely. My cross stitched mushrooms are done on very fine linen; would be hard to do this now but I will treasure those for as long as we live.
      A home ought to reflect ones personal history and walk of life and should be full of memories with some heirlooms, however insignificant and photos...
      You are a master in doing just that!
      Hugs to you,

  22. Good Evening Mariette, Your hallway is so beautifully light and bright and such a wonderful welcome for your visitors. The Italian chandelier is just so beautiful and you have so many beautiful items of interest to look at. It must take you an age before friends walk into your living room, they must stop with every step and enjoy your beautiful pieces on the walls. I especially like the Royal Tichelaar Makkum wall plate, there is so much beautiful detail to enjoy.
    Thank you for sharing your lovely home it has been a real treat to visit.
