We have a gorgeous hall in the house. From entering via the front door, you come into the main hall with the original arch which had some patio style doors installed (not originals) which have now been removed. We are planning on installing Crittal style doors in this arch for heat preservation as the staircase is big and very high with a huge window on the 1st landing which is approx. 3m tall so lots of light.
The ceiling of the stair case is beautiful barrel shaped with 3 ceiling roses. At present there is no ceiling lights but I think it would be stunning to hang some very simple bulb design lights from the ceiling rose by the window and a single pendant on ground floor and the top landings.
Below are some pictures of how it looks now as well as some images on the lights I have in mind.
