One of the last big projects in my house is the hall/stairway and I'm completely blank about it!!!
I'm painting all the woodwork white as you can see in this picture, because it was mismatched, needed a lot of plastering and to make the hall look brighter.
I also hoped it would make it easier to see what colour on the walls would be nice. But now I'm in the final stages of painting the woodwork and I still have no idea what colour I should pick
I have the doors upstairs open most of the time, You can see it here, its a picture of what the hall upstairs is like when you walk up the stairs.
My bedroom is mostly a bright green, my clothing room is a seablue, my study (you can't see it here) is deeppurple and has a huge wallfilling worldmap which you can see from the stairs.
The colour I'm thinking of most is a very light gold, a lot whiter that this one
. Other options are a light silver, aqua......
And I'm also not sure what I would do with all the wall-space. I have a half circle stairwell (I'm sure there is a professional term for this, but I don't have a clue), there is a very small window next to my front door and above that there is a wall space about 3.5 x 2m.... quite big to fill with a few picture frames.
(Excuse me for all the junk on the stairs
This is the huge boxlike space above the window (you can just see the edge of the door)
I think this might be a better picture for you to see
and this is the view from the top of the stairs, it just like a huge boring box!! And real ugly!!!!!!!!!!! Not to say dirty!
I would like to put pictures up, probably in a neatly organized way like 3 rows of 5 frames (I'm thinking of putting the freaky, ugly pictures of my boyfriend , friends and me up so it won't be too classic) But that would mean I would only use the wall that are close to the eye, leaving the whole space above it empty. Maybe I will put in a few nice lamps on a long cord, maybe oriental or, depending on my budget, nice ricepaper ones. This is the only picture i could find of lamps hanging together in a staircase. I like it, but it would be a bit to modern for my home, but he, its just to get an idea....
Or i could do a big photoprint in top part of "the box"? Like this Buddha:
or this smaller (1.15 x 1.75 m) one:
Or one of my own pictures blown up... also possible.
But wouldn't it be weird to have only the top part decorated with such a print, while the parts below are just painted???... i guess it would be too busy to hang pictures here...
To sum it all up: I don't really know what to do with this space. Please help me!!
