This is the cutest small hallway I've ever painted. In fact, it's so small I couldn't even get inside to photograph it. Just as the name says, the color is burgundy, but I think with just the suggestion of raisin to make it more interesting...
I like dark colors like this in small transitional spaces, and though you can't see them in this picture there are four white doors and a white ceiling to break up the dark mass and keep the color from being overwhelming. An off-white bedroom lies beyond this hallway, and also a bathroom with grey wallpaper.
This hallway is like a lemon custard intermezzo—something rich and delightful between more substantial courses.
