Hallway – Stripes

In the next couple of weeks Jeremy and I are going to tackle the hallway. We need to install a new light fixture, paint and organize my closet. My closet is also the hall closet.

I keep my clothes color coordinated and recently purchased 100 wooden hangers (8 for $3.95 from IKEA) to hang all my clothes on. We’re going to reorganize a little so everything fits a little more efficiently. Currently everything is crammed in there and wrinkling my clothes. I decided that if I have more than 100 pieces it’s time to edit my closet anyways.

We also got the KNAPPA light ($24.99) to hang in our hallway.

I love the idea of elevating a mundane space with the use of color, decoration, etc. I’ve always thought our hallway would be a fun space to add a dash of bright color. Today on Design Sponge
I noticed a striped hallway in a sneak peak.

I love this. I think we could do something like this in our hallway but with perhaps with brown and cream or brown and tan instead of black and white (though I do love black and white stripes).

What do you think?

  1. I love that idea, I think it will look awesome. Another option is wallpaper, to add some pattern.

  2. OMG, I am dying over that striped entry. That is so gorgeous. I think the black and tan would be equally chic.

  3. wanderluster – I love the idea of wallpaper… but at this point I think painting will be a little easier and cheaper. Maybe one day!

    rachel – I thought of your old bathroom and almost posted a photo of it with this entry! I think I’m going to go for it!

  4. yes yes and yes. love it!
    it’s also great for the fact that you are a design ho, because those lines will be perfect!!

  5. Thanks, Hal! Yesterday I was in my hallway, staring at the crooked ceiling and over textured wall a little scared of trying to tackle horizontal lines, but I think I can make it work.
