4 Clever Ways to Decorate Your Hallway

The hallway is way too often ignored when decorating… it is a space that is passed through so often, it deserves to have some attention! Since hallways tend to be small spaces, you don’t want to clutter or close it in, but you do want to add interest. It doesn’t have to be a boring, utilitarian space! Make sure you and your loved ones enjoy passing through… After all, isn’t life the journey, not the destination?  Here are 4 ideas to make your hallway shine!

This is great idea for making the most of a small pass through space… Add storage! This could easily be DIY’ed by installing pre made bookcase style cabinets, headboard and coat hooks. Finish with some trim to create a built in look.

Photos and white frames to tie the space together, yet not close it in. Professional photographed family portraits mixed in with candids shots of your kids as vacation pics gives an artsy feel to the space, and the grey walls warm it up. Using wide white picture frame mats helps keep a bright look as well.  NP Design & Photography will actually do a 'pre consultation' in your home to discuss your family photography session so that we can plan coordinating outfits as well as where your images will be displayed.

This may be my answer to my lifelong dream of having a library all for myself! Since it’s unlikely in today’s small home you can devote an entire room to books… how about using the least usable room for what should be the most usable things!

Children's art work is a great way to boost self esteem and add color and creativity to your walls!  A calming, pale grey to keep the space looking open and light. Gallery style frames along the walls in light colors draw the eye down. Don't forget to add art at the end of the hallway so it will make the space seem less like a bowling alley, and more like a room. Pretty, but never overdone!  High Point Framing & Art Gallery will have the perfect frame for your child's art!  With over 2000 moulding options, they have the right frame for any budget!
