I would go all white with different finishes. BM White Dove, (or maybe the white you have is fine, just put it all over in the different finishes.)matte on the walls, semi-gloss on the woodwork and gloss on the ceilings.

I can't see any ceiling lighting, but I am sure you have it somewhere. Find a ceiling flush mount fixture that shoots out beams…a crystal would be good. It will lighten up the ceilings so beautifully.

Yes a very dark hall...what about mirrors or mirror wall to reflect light and create illusion of more space. No dark colours in my opinion, as it is dreary!

Have you looked into solar tubes? Less expensive than skylights.

The only rooms I have decorated are my daughters. I love sage green and cream or soft grey and white but I'm not sure how it will look in this area. I also need a colour that will blend into the living room although I'm not sure what to do with the big feature wall. : / I normally have a good eye for colours but not in this house!!!
