Roundup: 4 Inspiring Ways to Decorate A Hallway

Because we have new projects on the horizon we are considering giving our hallway a much needed make-over. Four inspirational ideas after the jump...

We love this hallway. Not only is the graphic design hand-painted (holy moly) but we like how the graphic design is broken up by the wainscoting. Because the graphic design is bold, our eyes need something soothing to balance the look.

Hallways are typically pretty darn narrow but Cathinca manages to add a couple tall storage units to house her belongings. The important thing to note here is that the storage pieces utilize vertical space, which makes the hallway still flow visually (and not look cluttered). Cathinca also goes the extra step and hangs a single curtain panel to make the space visually interesting.

Use the hallway for seating and shoe storage. This is great for a hallway that gets natural light--simply store purses, shoes and other items that would go on a landing strip.

Using mirrors is great for small spaces because they reflect light, open up the space and act as windows--perfect for the narrow hallway. We especially love keeping them all one color so as not to seem jarring.
