Planked Wall Hallway Gets *NEW* Light Fixtures!


Planked walls seem to be all the rage this year.  They are really a
great way to add character and cottage charm to your home.

I have expressed my frustration with the  'six-door hallway' in
our home.  Yes, I am not kidding, the hallway has 
SIX doors!  I tried painting an accent wall {a mistake, I admit}
then finally decided to add the planking. 

The hallway also had oh-so-blah recessed lights.
I knew adding some semi-flush mounted
lights were one more way to add some 
interest to my crazy hallway.
{and maybe take some attention away from 
all those doors!}


This is a really tough spot to photograph so bear
with me on these crazy angled shots!  

Last weekend my hubby got busy hanging these
wonderful light fixtures from Bellacor.com!
I love the simplicity of the fixtures which
I would say are both modern and traditional.

The fixtures are called the 'Livex Heritage Convertible
Semi-Flushmount' and at $99.00 are pretty
affordable for a light fixture!  Aren't the so pretty?
And if you aren't a fan of these, Bellacor has 
tons more to choose from as well as other
great items for your home!  


We have nine foot ceiling so the fixtures also fill in some of
that vertical space and add so much interest and charm
to this once very dark and boring hallway!



I often find the most interesting homes are ones that don't ignore
spaces that one wouldn't normally think of decorating.  I think
someone needs to start a movement to begin making uninteresting
spaces more interesting - at least ones that have six doors!

In all seriousness, I often tell overwhelmed clients that
small changes, like paint and lighting really can
work miracles!  I think this hallway proves that.


My 'Flea Market' sign was a find at a local antiques mall - it's not
authentic but a made by a local gal here in Portland.


Can you see where I have yet to finish painting my
planks???  See that *VeRy* think strip next to
the door?  Yep, just haven't been able to muster
the motivation……maybe this weekend???

  1. 99 bucks is a great deal for those. They add a lot character to the space.
