Recall that I vamped up the style in this long narrow hallway last year during the One Room Challenge. I loved adding that saturated magenta color to this area of our home (below).
Indeed there is something to be said about choosing great foundation pieces during a renovation. They allow a homeowner tons of flexibility when changing the decor. The wallpaper I chose for this space had been on my wish list for at least a year or more. Its tropical bohemian vibe could not have been a more perfect choice.
I happen to have a serious crush on anything - decor, accessories or otherwise - that reminds me of places where the temperature is hot - not warm - HOT. A few simple adjustments was all that was needed to transform this hallway into a semi-tropical oasis. Let me show you what I mean.
For those of you just joining me, the tribal necklaces shown in both makeovers were made using pistachio nut shells and leftover jewelry pieces among other things. If you'd like to make your own (the real ones are crazy expensive), you can view the detailed tutorial here.
This impactful change was achieved by simply, swapping out the heavy winter-like accessories with more airy ones. The total cost was less than $20 for the white ceramic vase and the gold lotus candle.
It took a couple of days for The Husband to absorb the new look (perfectly normal). When he did, you longtime readers know what the signature response was... You know what to do...hold your nose and say "whaaaow!" That means that this hallway refresh is Husband-approved! And that folks, is this week's Friday Fix.
