Long Hallway!

emoney007January 15, 2013
Hello - I have a long entry hallway in my home and I am not quite sure what I should hang there. I tried to do a picutre wall of family and personal photos... but it came out really bad and I needed to take it down.

Should I look for three or four matching larger prints, try a collage?

Hang a series of pictures in a row, so the middle of the pictures are at your eye level. Then they will be a pleasant thing to view as you walk through this space.

I like large prints intermixed with some smaller and put the pictures as low as you want. The trick is using frames that are similar in style as opposed to all different. The chair rail makes it a little harder to place them- would you consider painting the lower half of the wall? A think a soft gray would be gorgeous. Or better yet white wainscotting? This would balance out the pics above. Benjamin Moore Dried Basil, it has a touch of green is great color. Lastly, a hanging light/chandelier would be amazing!

I would divide the hallway into sections and repeat the decor so there is a rhythm happening.
