  8. The rug in the first picture made me wish for hardwood floors in my hallway. I actually have hardwood floors but we haven’t ripped up the carpet over the hallway floor yet. This makes me want to get in there and start ripping away! : )

  31. Great inspiration.

    The hallway in our beach cottage is TINY – no room for any furniture, although I would love to add a little more character/color

    I have some shabby hooks, a couple of signs (“Bless this home” and “Home Sweet Home”, and some vintage postcards. The walls are cream.

    Any other suggestions?

  32. Love (LOVE) the rug in the first pic and the floral romans in the last and… and… and… Thankf for all the pretty, Melissa!
