Sneak Peek: Hallway Update

I have been hard at work on the hallway project and I just couldn’t wait to share a few images with you!

The final decision is the runner and I have ordered two samples of this rug in natural and green from Ballard Designs:

Thank you for all of your input and comments on the hallway project — they have been very much appreciated!  Y’all are the best.  Stay tuned!

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). 

Green Color Scheme

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!
