We fill our recycling bin with catalogs from the previous owners. I read most of them before giving them the heave ho, leaving me with a large stack of "inspiration" pages. One of those ideas that would be great in someone else's house is a hall tree. I love the way they're styled in the catalog pages and how they make a house look so relaxed and lived in. It feeds the part of me that looks forward to lining up little shoes and lunchboxes as kiddos head off to school.
No matter how much I love them, our entry starts immediately with stairs and small landing that cannot accommodate the more furniture type pieces. Our NC house also had a small entry with no wall for a hall tree. So for those of you with a wall and a will, here's a behemoth I love and a few accessories to boot.
