home decor: our hallway

We’re just days away from December which begins the countdown to the best holiday ever – my birthday! It also begins the countdown to my moms visit. It’s something I look forward to all year long. The thing is, every December when she visits I roll out my laundry list of projects that I want to tackle and at least every year there is something house related. Last year we re-painted the entryway and covered the front door in chalkboard paint which I posted about here. This year I have two projects planned though I’m not certain we’ll get to both.

A few Decembers back we hung wallpaper in the hallway. The paper is decadent and spot on Euro-glam. I wasn’t certain it would work but it does and I love it. The pattern is pretty busy and what I love most is that from the living room just a sliver of the wall is visible and you see this yummy wall draped in pretty paper. We only did one side since I felt doing both walls in such a narrow space would be a bit much. I think it works except the other wall is still the original wall color from when we moved it. It’s a boring blah vanilla beige. I’m still mulling over paint chips but I’m thinking a milky chocolate brown to match the main color of the wallpaper. I’m not going for an exact match, just a good match if that makes sense. My only dilemma is that the hallway will be really dark if I go that route which is fine on one had but the hallway leads to our bedroom which is painted this deep charcoal gray so it’s sorta like dark space leading into dark space. If we had ample lighting in our home I think it would be less of an issue.

Here go a few images I found of random things that capture a bit of the space in it’s present form. The colors of the wallpaper are probably most true in the first image.

And here go a few of the colors I have narrowed it down to. I think I’m digging the middle paint chip, color 8766 the most (second from the bottom).
