Before I reveal my completed hallway design, let me remind you of the original space and design plan.


Green and white were the colors of this house when we moved in.

Based on a Powder Room sign I purchased a while back to hang over the bathroom door at the end of the hall, I planned to dramatically change the look of this space.


Elements of my Glam Art Deco Hallway Design Plan

After hours and hours of painting, additions, updates and a few finishing touches we now have a very dark and dramatic Glam Art Deco Hallway.

This has been an absolutely amazing experience!  I am thrilled to have been a part of this cooperative design challenge.  The support and encouragement I have received from my fellow participants have been so touching and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their progress and helping them make their decisions when doubt has crept in.  I have learned so much and I am very glad that I shared this transformation with all of you!  Thank you for following along and thank you One Room Challenge for creating this fantastic event!

One Room Interior Design Challenge

interior decorator vs designer

A trend that will never die.  Whether it is family photos or artwork, a collection of items hanging on a wall together looks good.

Arrangement can be difficult and seem daunting.  How am I going to fill that space and make sure that it all fits and looks good?!

My new house had a HUGE wall that needed to be filled so I had to figure it out.  I started by picking out my biggest pieces of artwork and laying them out on the floor.  I moved them around until I found an arrangement I liked.  Then I took a picture of that arrangement so I wouldn’t forget it!

These are just examples of the arrangements I tried out because as you can see from the featured image, neither of these arrangements ended up on the wall. 

Next I cut out the shapes of what I wanted to hang so that I could arrange them on the wall without banging a million holes in the wall.

Again, you can see that even at this step my decision was not finalized.

Lay out the items, try different arrangements, take some pictures, make some paper cut outs, try hanging them again then finally decide and hang the gallery wall.  *sigh*  I am not going to lie, it was a lot of work but that is why I do what I do.  So you don’t have to!
