When we were on vacation in South Carolina last month I stopped in Pottery Barn. It was such a treat for me because we don’t have one in Lexington. I know right?! I happened to find some beautiful, must-have pillows on sale – 50% off! I snagged them up immediately!
|That’s my pirate’s booty treasure chest that I use as a coffee table 😉 I heart it so very much!|
The two white ones and the navy floral are my new PB pillows! I just love them! Especially because I got them at half price and didn’t have to pay for shipping! Oh happy day! The ikats are from Ballard – love them too – bought them months ago. The solid navy is a Target find. Love the texture of that one.
Okay, so enough pillow talk, let’s get on to the good stuff shall we? I have been stumped on what to do about the hallway. (It leads to the master and the guest bath.)
It was painted red (Porter Apple) by the previous owners. When we moved in our painter friend gave the walls a fresh coat of paint in the same color (the previous paint job was terrible) because we surprisingly liked the red walls. Red isn’t the most popular color for walls right now. I believe in doing what you love in your home regardless of trend or popularity. Something about this color just spoke to me, and I decided we should keep the room this color. It’s bold, warm, and spicy……just like us. 😉 However, I’ve decided that I don’t want the hallway to be the same color. I want it to feel separate and break up the wall. I painted a large swatch of Waverly Cafe Cream (the color in the dining room) to see how breaking up the color would look here. I definitely like the break it creates, but I’m wondering if I should do something more fun. What do you think?
Should I paint the hallway one solid color?
If so, should I stick with the cream color for a little house continuity; or should I try another color?
Or, should I stencil this hallway and bring in a fun pattern to the space?
Or, should I get stripey with it and add bold stripes?
Black and White?
Navy and White?
I’m not leaning in any direction yet. I can’t wait to hear what you all think! Because you all always give me the very best ideas! So you better bring it! Ready – set – go!
