Developers very often don't really budget to make hallways fabulous, or have run out of money, or just run out of enthusiasm! Either that or so many of the apartments sold off plan (those days are now gone??!) that they did not need to spend extra cash on creating a gorgeous entrance as their cash was already in the bank!
Well, whatever the reason this hallway was in desperate need of some Sian tlc, and was definitely more grim than moregeous. So with some slate tiles, a bit of boxing off, a palette of stone hued paint and lots of lovely greenery, it found it transformed into a space which owners and tenants alike smile to walk through.
