Decorating Awkward Spaces & A Giveaway

A Stroll Thru Life
Our upstairs landing is really a fabulous wide space, but it still has it's challenges when it comes to decorating.  The traffic flow in and out of all the rooms doesn't allow for a lot of furniture, but the space seems so empty without anything.

I have reached the part in unpacking where I am trying really hard to hang a few pictures and accessorize all the various spaces so that it reflects "us".

I think we all have pictures and accessories that mean something to us, but maybe not anyone else.  I have a collection of old antique portraits of my ancestors.  I love having these out, but where to hang them.  I thought the landing would be a great spot.   I found one curiosity about this house and where the builder chose to put light switches and wall pendants.  As you can see, he put the light right in the center of this wall and then down lower and almost in the center he put the light switch.  This does make it a little challenging when you want to hang pictures.  Working around those elements isn't always easy.

I found the same challenge when trying to hang my collection of clocks.  The light and switch are both in areas where a picture might hang, so working around them was again a challenge.

Even this corner piece of wall that leads into the loft area has a triple switch on it. (right above the right corner of the chair)

Creating a gallery on both walls worked fine.  If I had a large painting I wanted to hang, that wouldn't work at all.

Do you have quirky spaces in your home too?
