New Years Prezzie-lution….Hallway Update

 My New Years “Prezzie-lution” is a hallway update.  My upstairs hallway is, well, empty.  Aside from my pelmet box project, it is a pathetically sterile segue.  It has gotten left behind as all of the bedrooms and rooms downstairs got prettied-up.  So, as a half New Years Resolution and half “prezzie” to myself, I resolve to give it a little facelift. 

To start me off, below are two inspiration boards using two different color schemes.  This is a jumping off point, and sure to change!  The walls are painted American White by Benjamin Moore, and I have already started a gallery wall using black frames with wide, white mats.  I would love to acquire a runner, console, lamps and maybe recover my cute pelmet box (currently in the green P. Kaufmann fabric shown below).

What do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know whether you like the green or the red look better!  I can’t wait to take you along as I keep my New Years Prezzie-lution, for once!  🙂  Happy New Year, y’all!

  1. I’m loving the green… but it might be that it’s more spring-y and less Christmas-y than the red. Either way!

  2. That’s a tough choice… although I am partial to the red I think!

  3. Hmmmm….that’s a tough call. I like both of your idea boards. Guess it’s a matter of what “vibe” you want – cool/calm or warm/vibrant?? I think both have the potential to look fantastic!
