The biggest changes we made to our hallways included painting a lighter and brighter color (read here), adding more natural light and space by tearing down a wall (read here), creating a corner gallery (read here), and the most recent--replacing the light fixtures as well as the old thermostat.
Take a look at the transformation--from Dark to Light:
Paint: Benjamin Moore
Light Fixtures: Ikea
Smarty Pants Thermostat: Nest
Our corner gallery has been rather upset with me these past few weeks because I have not put a single thing in their frames! I have been collecting things from various trips, family photos, and artwork from Etsy to hopefully fill them with joy soon, stay tuned :)
Thanks for visiting!
