It's The Little Things That Make A House A Home

To add some interest to our hallway I added wide stripes in a colors two shades apart on the color swatch. For a small hallway, like ours, it is much more visually appealing than a solid, painted wall.

To see how I did it, check out my blog post:

The Lettered Cottage added this to Fine Lines: Decorating With Stripes
Monochromatic stripes encourage you to "walk this way".
I love seeing big clocks used in hallways and pass-through areas of the home. What a great way to keep track of the time on your way by. The horizontal stripes create movement and flow...while the clock with it's tick tock passage of time just further accentuates the energy of this space.
