Last summer, when I updated my life list I included an item about my hallway upstairs (number 16, for those of you playing along at home). The plan was to strip the wallpaper, paint the wall and then add some wall decals that I'd been admiring at Elephannie's Etsy shop. Stripping off the wallpaper and painting the wall was a big job and when that was complete I decided to live with the walls for a while. This winter, after hours of daydreaming about the wall decals I wanted, I bought some flowers to place by the hallway mirror.
the living room re-do; this upstairs hallway paint is a shade lighter than the living room and for accents I wanted to use the same dark red and brown in the room downstairs. Flowers were an easy first choice but I didn't want the hallway to be too girly. Elephannie's shop had lots of options. I went with a nature theme and selected some birds and a squirrel.
