My hallway and stairway should be painted today! I am so excited to see what it looks like all freshened up. It feels like home-makeover day today even though I am just giving it a coat of paint, but with the disrepair it is in from my ceiling fan throwing dust into 20 feet high corners and toddler hands caressing the walls for the last 4 years, I think it will look completely different - at least that's my hope! It is just going to be painted the same white as my living area (benjamin moore: vapor) for a couple reasons, but the best reason is not torturing myself (and loved ones) with another round of trying to pick the "perfect"paint color. And the fact that I am not doing the painting myself, for the first time ever I might add, I can't see not loving it.

With my long awaited anticipation of the project being completed I have been looking at (white) hallway & stairway inspirations and have rounded up a few of my favorites to hopefully inspire and motivate me to put all back together better than it was.


  1. Oh, I'm so excited for your repainting! I'm always up for a refresh and a redo. I hope you'll show some after photos. The pictures of your home that you shared on Erin's blog were so lovely and so YOU! I love these hallways too. We have one hallway in our home that is all counter/shelves on one side. It feels more pantry than hall, really. I'd love an expanse of wall to hang some photos from...

  2. It's amazing what a clean coat of paint will do for a space, seriously. Even when we painted our downstairs guest room a new shade of white from the builder's off-white that came with the house, it was a massive difference. I can't wait to see the outcome! And the best part is you're not doing it yourself. Taping off all those angles of a 20' ceiling would have been torture for you, I'm sure!!

  3. I love that the white you chose for both your living room and hallway is not a stark white - it's perfectly cozy! I bet it also helps hide any little dark marks from your boys playing. I live with my fiance and although he isn't a little boy - he might as well be with how dirty he makes our walls after drawing or painting :)

  4. Those built-in shelves are such a great way to use the space.

  5. I think white is a great choice, especially if you want to open up the space. I'm a big fan of contemporary, minimalistic decor and feel to homes, so white color is a great choice, and these are some fabulous inspiration shots. Do post pictures once you are done, and good luck :)


  6. With such gorgeous images inspiring you, I can see why your excited. I'm excited! ;) Hope we can see some after photos. Pretty please. Gosh, this whole post is making me want to paint the whole house white. Currently, our walls are a nice vanilla, but it's not the same as a snowy white.

  7. White walls and wooden floors...The perfect pair!
