Simple in a narrow hallway. White painted stairs make them appear wider and the grey runner is both practical and elegant. Seek out a slim console - vintage or modern - thats useful and decorative but not space-consuming.
Entering into the narrow hallway, the palest of taupe paints above the dado rail, and a chalky, putty paint tone on the panelling below. This is the shape of our hallway- should I put a picture rail up so we can have two colours on the walls?
