Hallway art

I was going through some photos the other day and changing out some frames that I have hanging in the hallway, something I don't do very often, and then did some rearranging.

Do you have hallway art or hallway photos?

I think it makes a long (dark, in my case) hallway more interesting and pretty. I've also added mirrors to reflect some light. You could use all the same color frames or do a mixture.

I started with the big mirror in the center and then worked out from there. You could fill the whole wall if you wanted ~ a gallery of your favorite photos and artwork.

Well, today I'll be spending more time outside because the weather is cooler, finally. After weeks of 100 degree days we got a break. This morning when I was sitting on the back porch having coffee I was actually chilly. Otis and Riley and I had a long walk to the park, and now it's out to the garden to dig in some dirt.

Enjoy your day!

I've just recently found your blog while researching different ones and I love your garden and the pictures of your home are lovely, as well. I have a collection of mirrors on my entry way wall and I've recently thought about updating it, but I like it too much! In my upstairs hallway I have a collection of family photos that I just recently updated when we repainted. I think it's important to keep your home fresh and update things occasionaly, as well as seasonaly. Love the ideas I get from your blog. Thank you Donna! Truly, Sharon

I can't think of a nicer way to brighten up a dark hallway. It looks great.
Isn't this cooler weather heavenly? I'm enjoying it while I can.
Have a wonderful weekend, Donna.
