Welcome, friends, to a part of my home you’ve never seen before! Since I started this blog way back in the dark ages (2009), I have never shown this part of my abode. The reason is that for about 15 years it was just a wall painted a dark brown color. I passed by it every day, sighing, and thinking that someday I should do something with this small space.
This hallway connects the master bedroom and master bathroom. Yes, you have to leave the bedroom to go to the bathroom. We like it better that way (less noise, more privacy). On the other side of the hallway is the guest room, so any friends or relatives staying will have access to this bathroom. I decided it was time to update this narrow hallway between the two bedrooms and give it a bit of style.
I’ve always wanted to display my travel art prints, especially my black and white photos from around the world, and I’ve finally done it here. We painted the hallway with Benjamin Moore’s Simply White and hung the art in an asymmetrical grid format. We’ve added a narrow console below the display for easy space.
I’ve had a basic metal console for years and it was originally black, but I repurposed it here and used hot glue to attach the two top shelves with light brown cotton rope. I wrapped it up and painted the legs the same color to give it some texture.
Now, this console is a little more interesting, but less common. This hallway doesn’t get any direct or indirect light, so I thought it would be best to simply decorate it with faux stems.
Your favorite travel snapshots are a great source of images and a great way to customize your walls. Plus, you can’t go wrong with timeless black and white photos.
