AT reader True Blue's comment on this post got us wondering: how do AT readers feel about the decor of the common space of their apartments?...

Our building's entrance and hallways are painted mauve from a renovation 20 years ago. We can't stand the color, but otherwise we quite like our building's common spaces: the ceilings are high, with decorative traditional light fixtures, and the floors are terra cotta tile. We're thankful every day that the common spaces aren't carpeted. Still can't get past that mauve, though.

Individual apartments generally have much nicer decor than the building's common entries and hallways. We put our hearts into our apartments and the common spaces are generally overlooked or at the hands of a landlord or building manager. However, there are some really cool building lobbies out there, too. What about your common spaces: do you love your building's entry? Hate the hallways? Have any AT readers ever influenced the decor of their building's common spaces? photos via Flickr
