One of my friend asked me for ideas about doing up his hallway. It's quite a big hallway with a main rectangle shape entrance and a long narrow corridor going to the kitchen. At the moment it feels dark (no natural light), a little depressing and quite disjointing.
He had already decided he wanted to go for a darker colour, which I completely agreed with. Painting it white would be fine but it wouldn't have the same impact as painting a rich dark blue for example. I used it as option 3 in the brief in case he chickened out:)
