So, remember the failed silver hallway? Last week I finally got around to re-painting it. I based my color scheme off of this amazing vintage fabric I picked up a few months ago at the Alameda Flea Market (5 yards for $20) that I used to recover a chair I found the same day (best deal ever – only $1.) So since our foyer is red, the hallway became pink. And I love it. Pink is really one of the happiest colors, in my opinion. And I think it looks great against the red.
Most of our red or red-ish artwork has now ended up in here, although right now is propped on top of the bookcase wating for frames and rearranging.
I also really like how the pink plays off the rooms it leads into, the mustardy bedroom and the blue bathroom. T’s office is also off of this hallway, and is currently renter’s-white, but he just agreed to let me paint it, so get excited for that.
The color was custom mixed into a gallon of white paint I already had but didn’t like, but it’s an approximated Benjamin Moore color. I can’t find the paint chip right now, but will get it in the next few days and add the information here.
