Many old cottages used to have siding like this inside from expansions. I love this as an intentional detail. The entry bench is great. I would love to start seeing hall trees more ofte though. The Doors, Mudroom, Back Doors, Black Doors, Dutch Doors, By Dutch, Mud Rooms, Front Doors, Under Stairs

Love the window above the door as opposed to on the sides. Let's light in, no privacy issues.
Ughhh I wanna do this to my apartment so bad! That might be pushing it with my landlady though.. haha.
