CHIC SHACK || upstairs hallway art project

The time has come to drag you all in to my twisted  web of indecision that is our upstairs hallway art project.  These walls couldn’t be calling out any louder for some pretty pals to join them, but thanks to my innate ability to research and mull over every option available on planet earth, they’ve been lonely for some time.
This is what the hallway looks like now, there are 2 prime spaces for some big size beauties  (the other plot is to the right of this wall, separated by a door).  Directly across the way is the staircase and my most favourite, monochromo graphic wallpaper adorning the wall leading upstairs.
So here we are...of course my natural (some may say boring) instinct is to gravitate towards something black and white, but I think I need to spice it up. Here are 3 fab options; help me pick!
 If I’ve learned anything about myself during the decorating process it’s that I’m OBSESSED with animal art, statues and accessories of all kinds, so these stunning beasts are definite contenders.
But then there's my obsession with doors. These are colourful and glammy with their pretty accents, a pop of colour might be what the design doctor ordered?                                                                              via via
And lastly, some retro looking pics of Palm Springs (Joshua Tree Park) our honeymoon hot spot and a more natural option, these trees are soooo cool!

So there you have it, 3 very different pairs that I totally adore, I just can't make up my mind. What do you think?
P.S Happy long weekend to my Canadian pals, enjoy!


  1. Erin - I just found your blog - you have fantastic taste(I love what you did with your backyard)! I've added you to my blog reading list.

    Would it sound too biased of me to vote for the cheetah and zebra, since I'm the photographer? I don't think black and white is ever boring, and I do think they would look great in your hall... but then again I might just be biased! Actually all the photos you chose are lovely and would look great. Have fun choosing!

  2. So glad you stopped by! Your photographs are beautiful, either way I'll find a special place for the cheetah, gorg!

  3. Love the wallpaper! It definitely makes a statement. May I ask where you found it?

  4. Thank you, I'm so happy with how it turned out! We got it from Crown Wallpaper, but I don't know which line it was from?

  5. Really nice doors! These days I made a In-Home-Consultation with Exterior Transformations and these experts suggested to have a new entry door by installing a French door. I am really excited about these transformation!
