If you've been following me for any amount of time, you most likely understand the importance of hanging wall art in your home. Today, we're going to talk about some of the spaces you may have ignored - the hallways, stair wells. landings and the transition spaces of your home. It's time to make that sad walk from the bedroom to the living room special! Take a tour through abstract artist, Ann Golumbuk's home to see how we made those spaces come to life!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 1: LARGE SCALE SATURATED WALL ART
Hallways are are perfect place to place a very large scale painting like we did here. This one incorporates ALL of the color in the home and was inspired by the gorgeous area rug I placed in the living room (above).
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 2: ADD SCULPTURAL ART
The entryway would feel bare without this incredible sculpture created by the homeowner, Ann Golumbuk called, "Orange Is The New Black".
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 3: GO VERTICAL DUDE
We had this very vertical landing space in the stairwell. Ann took the cardboard roll that art canvas comes on, mounted them on wood blocks and created the perfect art for this space! The bronze men scaling the wall add interest to the stairwell as well.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 4: ADD DIMENSION
Dimensional wall art is a fantastic way to adorn your walls. I love how bold this white plaster "Ear, Nose, Mouth" wall art looks against the red wall.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 5: LIGHT THE WAY
We literally created an In Home Art Gallery in the downstairs hallway. We added track lighting so that we could spotlight the art. This is one of my favorite spaces in the home now.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR HALLWAYS BEAUTIFUL TIP 6: WORK WITH THE ARCHITECTURE, NOT AGAINST IT
This back stairwell was pretty nondescript when I showed up on scene. I immediately wanted to paint the ceiling and narrow vertical overhang in a dark blue so that the lighting would look like a graphic element. Ann created the perfect wall art to go into this space with these four pieces called, "Hot Lava".
