First off, let me say these pictures don´t do the finished hallway justice. While it is a sizeable room for a hallway - more like a foyer, really (native speakers, help me?) - it is really difficult to photograph. I took about 100 pictures in the course of today and this is the best I can do.
Anyway. The point is, we finished the hallway. I looove it.
I really am a little obsessed with this wallpaper. It´s "Scroll" from the Morris archive wallpapers, and it was very generously sponsored by Wallpaper Direct. I´ve ordered both the wallpaper in our bathroom and bedroom through Wallpaper Direct and was very impressed with the speedy delivery and their reasonable shipping costs. They have a great range of wallpapers that aren´t available in Germany or at least not for that price.
I love how the yellow of the flowers echoes the warm wood tones of the doors and goes so well with all the greys in the adjacent rooms. The hallway went from cold and functional to whimsical and warm. Wallpaper, you guys. It can do miracles.
I think I´ll paint the door a lighter shade sooner or later but for now it´s fine as is. We didn´t wallpaper that particular wall since there isn´t much wall to speak of anyway and there´s a lot happening here already with the two windows and the door. Also, I´m very happy with the dado we did in here by the way. I think if we had done all the walls from top to bottom it would have been too busy. This way, it´s just right.
Look, so pretty. This makes me happier than it probably should. Thank you Wallpaper Direct!
