2019 Condo Renovation - before
This hallway is the central space that connects the kitchen, dinning room, living room, entry and all bedrooms. In order to separate the spaces, I installed a raw slab of walnut wood on the dividing wall here so that there were different materials on the kitchen counter (granite) than the dividing wall and fireplace mantle. They all originally had the same gray granite from the previous contractor. This way, each room had its own character but still had a flow because all rooms were painted greige.
