Hardwood Hallway

Sometime near the of November, we had Brazilian Cherry hardwood installed in the hallway upstairs. Isn't it gorgeous? I (Justine) was really conflicted with all the choices available - light, dark, red, brown, laminate, engineered, exotic... while the Brazilian Cherry doesn't exactly match the other woods in the house, it has a beautiful warmth, and we can always stain the wood downstairs to match - or install the same wood there, as well. It will darken and richen as it ages and is exposed to light and we're pretty happy with it.

Here is a close-up of some of the grain:

We also installed some shelving in our brand-new hall closet:
