Our hallway is boring. Just look at this >>>
Boring, boring, boring!
The rest of our house is, I think, homely. It is open plan and bright and airy. The kitchen leads onto the one large living space, meaning that wherever we are downstairs we are together. It says “a family lives here”. It shows that we like to read and that we like to play.
But our hallway says nothing like this. It says a boring, lifeless couple live here. I am fed up of it. I want people to enter our house and see vibrance and colour and fun. I want a hallway like this >>>
I want a hallway with storage under the stairs that is accessible and meets our needs. Not cramped and impossible to use without emptying everything else out first.
<<< This storage system will take some making by a very skilled tradesman but it would really do the job and I’d know exactly where everything was.
I want a little bit of wallpaper that makes the tight space look larger, vertical stripes will make it look taller than it is and complementary paints in yellow and white to lift the whole look. Crisp white woodwork and a funky flooring. Wood on the hallway floor and a carpet runner on the stairs.
<<< I want the front entrance to entice our guests in.
