The Back Hallway
Once the front room and front hall were finished, the next
logical project to tackle was the back hallway. We decided to keep the
wall color as is: an almost greeny-yellow cream color called 'Ice Cream'
that worked out well with the front hall green color. Where the current
paint job took the cream color all the way to the ceiling, we dropped
the new white ceiling color down to the picture
hanging rails, keeping the Ice Cream color between the
picture rail and the wainscotting. This tactic both opened up
the top of the room (with the white) while making the each room feel a
little more intimate (with the color).
In the picture below you can see where we painted the ceiling white from
the far end of the hallway to the light fixture.
