White might be simple, but never dull.

Halls are pathways between living spaces, but they can be much more than this. Instead of seeing your hallway as just a way to get from one room to another,
 look at it as a gallery to display all that you love.
 Displays of treasured and found items bring vibrancy to a home. They give guests a glimpse into your life. By effectively using shelving, artwork for wall space or furniture (depending on size of hall), you can display the objects you love most. The hallway is a key place to do this. A key to successful hall gallery display is using a common denominator, such as color, a material, a shape, or a theme, to unify the pieces. Grouping elements in odd-numbered groups, usually three to five pieces, creates an eye-pleasing display. Varying the heights of the elements adds interest. 
Display collectibles by creating small groupings on an art shelf or within shadow boxes. Choose items in the same color family to create unity within the display area in your hall. Whatever look you choose, don't skip over the hallway when designing your home. It can prove to be the unexpected gem of your personal space.

And always remember: less is more!
