Hall of Fame!

Great use of light and shadow, playing off the angles in the architecture! The antique frames with mirrors in different sizes, not only bounces the light around, but they also make the eye wander down the hall way, ultimately landing on the cabinet and the longhorn skull at the very end... Cool, huh?

How is this for a foyer? Welcome home!!

Love those tall, glossy, black doors with the round door knockers in the middle. Their circular handles echoing the door frame, the transom and the round hall table...
great eye for detail!!

This house is located in New Canaan, Connecticut.
