I think third time is a charm when it comes to my hallway. When it comes to decorating, I think sometime we have to experiment a little before we get it right. The first time was too bright, the second time was too boring, and now...... I am totally crushing on it :) We finally had some sunny days after a ton of storms so I was able to get decent pictures of my new hallway.
This is the view from the front room
I love playing with patterns. That is why I hoard fabric and why I love to stencil.
And I am kind of infatuated with polka dots.
I used the small scale polka dot stencil from Cutting Edge Stencil. The wall color is Almond, the trim is Heirloom white, and the dots are a mix of the 2 paint colors. I will be giving the paint code info later this week.
My hall is really just a small 6'X8' "room" that is the hub of the upstairs. It is in the center and all the rooms branch off from it.
I moved my mason jar planter planter back to the hall. I had moved it into my kitchen. I loved them being in the kitchen BUT they were on the wall right above a heat vent. The poor plants dried out in just a few days. Whoops! So they are back to the hall. They do well there. The house plants that I used need indirect light (medium to low) and they thrived there. If you missed it, you can read the original post about my wall planter. *I am still planning on an update post all about them!*
I realized after looking through my other posts about my hall that I have never shown this angle with my pantry. I love older homes with their fun built ins :) There was a plug on the inside of the pantry so I drilled a hole through the wall so I could hang a CD player. We love music at out house and this was the perfect place. It is tucked away in a little corner and with it facing the stairway, the music is easily heard downstairs.
Thanks for letting me share my new hall!!!
