Ek, it’s been a few weeks since my last post. It’s been a bit busy between work and just living life. The weekends have been jammed packed the past few weeks, just like yours probably have. A good friend of mine got married Memorial Day weekend!!! It was nothing short of perfection. We had a grand ole time!! We had the Taste of Syracuse the following weekend. Wasn’t really planning on going this year but whatever, we always somehow end up there! Just Donuts stole my heart and my Instagram this year, for sure!
This past weekend we went down to Hershey Park and saw BEYONCEEE! First off, the park is amazing and I have NO IDEA how I’ve never been there. We WILL go back when so we have more time to do everyyyyything! I will do a Bey post showing her amazingness shortly
Onto the real task at hand, I have these spirts of SERIOUS decor envy and then get a few things done around the house. Unfortunately my budget doesn’t allow for a full reno on a random Thursday but I try to make baby steps towards the bigger picture. Last weekend I finally painted our hallway! It was repulsive before with just weird stains from moving stuff in and out and to be honest, we weren’t sure if it had been painted in the last 10+ years. I went with Armadillo from Behr Marquee’s collection. It’s number N230-3.
The Marquee guarantee’s one coat of paint gets it done and it sure did! Only had a few touch up spots due to my amateur paint rolling skills. It’s extremely close to my paint color in the living room. I can’t be too mad because I guess it means I just loooove the paint in the living room, right?!
My only debate now with the hallway (and everything else in the house) is painting the trim WHITE. And this would possibly include 2 built in closets in our hallway… They are definitely mid-century modern era since the house was built by John’s grandparents in the 50’s. I just love how the brownish color tones will look with beautiful, white, crisp trim, but I don’t want to paint over something that I could never get back. So, I’m just going to share some amazing decor inspiration of hallways in the mean time as John and I make a decision…
Love me an accent wall
These lights!!! And painted doors!
Hello beautiful white everything
Obsessed wif that wittle chair!
White & Gold & White & Gold
IS THAT SHIPLAP??!?!
What’s this I see in the mirror
Hello handsome chair and rug and accent wall
My Lord, sign me up for it all
The character in this rug
By the end, I can only hope our hallway is up to par with the few above. Nothing beats a little decor inspiration on a chilly day, on a pay week I’ll keep ya up to date with any progress of the hallway. Hallways have the most character is people’s homes so it’s important to nail it!
