Narrow Hallway Ideas?
January 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We live in a small condo with a contemporary, home-y style. Our hallway accents are black - so far we have 3 slim black shelves, a black magnetic key/mail holder, and a black framed mirror. As you can see, we have mounted a surfboard and across that there is a canvas photo of a boat.

What can we add to this narrow hallway for function and design?

Any suggestions on paint color? Do hallway hooks make the area look too much like the inside of a closet or would they work?

I really like the surfboard there both as a handy place to store it and as a design element.

Found a few examples of narrow hallways that I thought work really well.

put hooks on pieces of driftwood,keep it in style with the surfboard or find coathangers that are a bit different and place a mirror with it

I like the idea of adding three lighting fixture down the hallway (have attached photo for idea). In my opinion a bold runner is a must. I would get one close to the length of your hallway. Depending upon the color you could pull a paint color out of the rug

LOVE the idea of adding a few hanging lights down the hallway!
Right now we have a 60s pattern runner with light green, yellow and beige and you're right - we definitely need something bolder.
