- Entry hall, from front door to dining room/kitchen/living room/"back" hallway
- "Back" hallway: to guest room (music room) & guest bath, craft room, coat closet, and laundry/garage
- "Bedroom" hallway: to master suite

I'd originally painted this hallway dark to keep it "out" of the living room, also because this deep purple was a paint mixing mistake - but I LOVED it and wanted to look at it all the time.
|(3) 2010 living room paint job & less-is-more hallway art|
When I painted the living room (and the entire free world - living, dining, kitchen, and entry hall) last year, I incorporated the bedroom hallway back into the room with the same paint color - which I like quite a bit. I also got rid of the big picture arrangement and hung just a few related pics under a painted-on "picture rail".
(Now, I adore the bust that you see in the bedroom hallway, but I hate the pedestal it's on, and I don't like either of them where they are...but I'm not sure yet where the bust's new home will be).
And here's the entry hall:

|(1) Landing area on the left as you walk in|
|(1) Artwork on the opposite side|
You can consider this last one a "before" picture, also. I like the artwork here, but I'm not done playing with it yet. The canvases need new hangers on the back so that they'll hang straight; I'm also thinking of painting a "picture rail" on the wall to match the one in the bedroom hallway, but I'm not sure about it yet.
The coat hook behind the door is going away soon; and the inside of the front door is getting a paint job soon, as well. Just as soon as it stops bloody raining, so I can leave the door open so it can dry without thoroughly humidifying the house!
Also, the blue ceilings in the entire house are going away as soon as I can muster the troops to paint nearly 1,500 square feet of ceiling (white). Awful job, painting ceilings. But that's a story for another post.
* Wait, where's the #2 hallway? I don't have any pictures of it, because...I don't have any pictures of it. It's, um...green. And it's dark. Which is why I don't have any pictures of it. And because it is also a story for another post.
