To keep with the modern theme of this particular project, we kept the main wall a colour that was consistent with the bedroom, living area and other rooms of the home. The colour used here was Dulux Glinks Gully.
We decided to complement the main walls with a feature wall at the end of the hallway to really set it off. The colour we used here was Dulux Winter Sea. One of the great things about feature walls is that you can use them to change the visual aspect of a room without significantly changing other colour schemes around the house.
Another thing we decided to do here was use a lighter shade on the skirting, architraves and doorways. The colour we used here was Dulux Vivid White. Lighter colours have the visual effect of adding depth to a light colour without darkening the room. We also kept the ceiling a light colour to give the perception that they were higher and brighter than they actually were.
PRO TIP: When painting the ceiling in the hallway, always go with the light to avoid unwanted roller marks.
This particular hallway project had floorboards, was well lit, long and wide and had an extra high ceiling. The natural timber flooring enhances the natural warmth of colours in the room.
The end result is a new, fresh looking hallway with a feature wall that makes it pop.
