Hallway Update: Console-ation

Happy New Year!  Thanks for all of your comments on my hallway update.  So, I have chosen the green color scheme! 

I luvvved the contrast of the red against the gray walls, but I decided that it didn’t have any “flow” with the rest of the house.  Also, the hallway doesn’t have very much natural light and the red may have been a little too dark for the space. 

Anyway, I found the most GORGEOUS console at Wisteria. 

{Insert SWOON!!}  Measure first, get excited later.  Lesson learned.  At 19.5 inches deep, it’s way too deep for the space.  {Insert gnashing of the teeth.}

To quote Chicago, “don’t look back, never look back.”  

Moving on.  I stumbled across this lovely console at Brocade Home, which is perfectly long (52 inches) and not too deep (17 inches).  At $499 + $50 shipping surcharge, it’s a little pricey, but it’s a fabulous, lifelong, investment piece.  I love the high gloss black finish.

I also love the Parsons console (pictured in my inspiration board above) from West Elm:

The dimensions work (54 inches long and 18 inches deep), and the price is about right ($349 + $30 shipping).  I love the simplicity of its lines and Parsons tables will always be a classic look. 

I also like the idea of the Parsons book shelf from West Elm.  The extra space would be nice for storage (books!) and fun to style.  It’s the same price as the console and the dimensions are still about right (48 inches long and 16 inches deep). 

In a similar vein, I have always liked the Chloe tables from Pottery Barn:

It is on sale ($299 with no shipping surcharge), and the dimensions work well (47.5 long and 17 deep).  My only concern is that I will get tired of this look over time.  These tables have been around for at least 6 years, maybe longer.  I am not sure that this console has a timeless, classic look that I will love for years to come.

The console will sit centered on a long wall in the hallway with black gallery frames hung above, and two lamps on each end. 

What do you think??  I would love to hear your opinions, thoughts and ideas!

So, I have been on the prowl for attractive and functional shelving for my home office.  Look at the swoon-worthy ledge shelves ($69) that I found at Brocade Home:

This lovely headboard ($599 for queen) would look great in a girl’s bedroom, well okay, almost any  bedroom.

And, of course, you know me and white bedding, I HEART this amazing textured duvet cover ($249) (pictured above too).  It just went on my “wish list”!

I love these artistic chairs ($199) and one would look fabulous by itself as an accent in a bedroom, or as a set around a kitchen or casual dining room table.

This innovative and unique ruffle shelf ($499) is adorable.  Wouldn’t it look great in a powder room with pretty jars, soaps and toiletries?
