When we bought our house the walls were painted peachy-mustard throughout. The first floor and basement were painted before we moved in but the upstairs hall remained. It barely took any time at all to paint, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Now, every time I walk upstairs I swoon, just a little bit. The new rug and light are just an added bonus.

First attempt at a rug from West Elm. This rug was hideous in person and too small.
I love it
