Black + White Photography Wall

Friends, welcome to a corner of my house you’ve never seen before! Since I started this blog in the dark ages (2009) I have never shown you this corner of my abode. The reason was that for about fifteen years it was just a plain wall painted dark tan. I walked by it every day, sighing and thinking that I had to do something about this cramped space.

This hallway connects the primary bedroom to the primary bathroom, yes you have to go outside the bedroom to get to the bathroom and we love it (less noise, more privacy). On the other side of the hallway is the guest room so any friends or relatives who stay the night have access to this bathroom. I thought it was time to update this narrow hallway between the two bedrooms and give it a little style.

I wanted to showcase some of my travel art prints, especially my black and white photography from around the world and I finally made it happen here. I painted the hallway Benjamin Moore’s ‘Simply White’ and then hung the art in an asymmetrical grid arrangement. Below the display I added a console narrow enough for easy clearance.

I was done Basic metal console Over the years, it was originally black, but I repurposed it here and gave it texture by wrapping the top two shelves. Light brown cotton rope Using hot glue, then paint a matching color on the legs.

Now this console is a slightly more interesting, less ubiquitous piece. This hallway doesn’t get any direct or indirect light so I think it’s better to just decorate it with fake branches.

Snapshots from your favorite travels are a great source of images and the perfect way to personalize your walls, plus you can never go wrong with timeless black and white photography!
