How to Improve the Feng Shui of a Long Hallway

In our new home we have one very long hallway. I mean, it’s long, y’all. (I just now stopped to measure it – it’s actually almost 20 feet long).

On one side of the hallway, there are entrances to the nursery, the guest bath, the office and the guest bedroom. On the other side, all there is is an entrance to the living room and then this HUGE blank wall. I feel like it just goes on for miles!

What in the world am I going to do with this hallway? That was one of the first things I asked myself when we moved in. I thought of a few things…

  1. All the pics over the years of the girls, I could just keep on framing them and adding them to the hall. But then, who would see them? Just us! I would want those to be out everywhere for folks to see!

This will aid in laying the foundation of a peaceful and serene retreat. The bedroom shouldn’t be too large as it makes you feel less in control of your surroundings.
