Here is the hideous before pic, the colour is the previous owners choice. I had starting planning this out awhile ago so of course I have changed my mind a couple of times. Which is what happens when you don't get right to it.
My new plan is for a more modern light instead of a lantern style, and add a floating credenza to the wall where I was originally going to place a mirror.
Instead of a painted stair runner, I am going to paint the whole area black. I think it will have a more sophisticated look then the painted runner.
Here are some halls that I have drawn inspiration from.
Here is my rough plan for my front hall.
Scope of work to be done
* Paint the walls BM Cloud White
* Paint the stairs black considering BM Black Onyx
* Paint all doors high gloss black
* Source rug, light, credenza
* Create a gallery wall using family photos
* Style and accessorize
I am excited to get going on this project and to check out each week what everyone else is designing along the way.
