Renovation Ruminations: Bright hallway ideas

As we’re currently getting the knock through done to our bedroom (into the dressing room) part of our house is resembling something of a building site. In order to avoid thinking about it I’m doing the sensible thing and fantasising about part of our house that I really dislike (decor-wise) and really want to change, but don’t have any plans to do so for probably a year or more. (We have already blocked up a doorway in the hall and have yet to move another, so there is no point decorating before that is done.)

Our hall has great bones but an old fashioned wallpaper below the dado rail and an abundance of cream paint. The floor is half decent as its one saving grace, along with the pretty bannister spindles. I’m envisaging a bright and light white painted hallway with a blue and white patterned modern wallpaper for practicality below the dado and lots of super bright accents.

I want to create a space that is bright, modern and welcoming with tons of personality and family friendly too. I just wish we could do it sooner!

What do you think readers?

Love,

Right now, I’m on a real mission to get some key areas of my home sorted out and it’s lead me to re-investigate some of my favourite online stores. (Remember when I first featured Magpie Miller in 2011?) Magpie Miller recently shot their latest offerings for their spring/summer collection and I loved the styling so had to take a second look…

I love the curated collection that Elissa oversees, mixing salvaged and re-loved pieces with decidedly modern bright and beautiful finds like these gorgeous geometric shapes. I can just imagine these hanging in a baby’s room or as a decorative feature in a modern home.

I thought I would share some of my favourite pieces and invite you to look around the rest of the store. I’ve got my eye on a few things – how pretty is the oh la la print and the mint green moon screen print? Or these 1960’s ombre pastel glasses? I’m imagining summer cocktails…

What’s your favourite Magpie Miller find?

Love,
