Currently the walls are painted blah renter-white and the door is an awful dark brown (it will get fresh weather stripping as soon as it is re-painted). Most of the rest of the trim is the original dark finish, though a prior owner stripped some and left it unfinished. I think we will restore all of it. I have no artwork for the hall aside from one black-and-white photograph that could go elsewhere. The bikes, however, are a permanent fixture. A more orderly storage solution is in the making. We plan to replace the light fixtures with a style more consistent with the age of the home (1907) and strip off all the painted-over wallpaper. However, we are not doing a historic rehab. Beyond sticking with hardware consistent with building style, this is a blank slate. Suggestions? Sent by Kat Editor: Leave your suggestions for Kat in the comments — thanks! • Got a question?
