Front Hallway Painted

Another short post to show off the front hallway. I will just quickly mention that for some reason I'm rarely getting my notifications for new comments. Apologies if you haven't gotten a reply on a recent comment.

The front hallway was painted just before Christmas (the week before). I had been planning to paint the hallway for months and I absolutely wanted to have it done before my Christmas party on the 21st. Basically it wasn't a huge job, but it was definitely last minute. In the process of taking stuff down and prepping for paint, I figured out why my doorbell had stopped working. Turns out that the dust from sanding the floors earlier this summer had accumulated on the contact for the hammer and it wouldn't conduct electricity anymore. I just had to clean it. Works perfectly now.

The colour I chose was picked out about 4 years ago, and it's a shade of peacock blue. I had seen this exact colour used in a local historic house and wanted to use it somewhere. Depending on the lighting (especially in the evening in artificial light) it can look a bit more greenish.

This shows part of the staircase wall. The wall going up the stairs is very light grey:

Corner view showing front door (wood) with the doorbell I talked about above, the office doorway is on the right. I had put my Christmas decorations up:

View from the office looking across the hallway and into the living room. As mentioned above, the walls going up the stairs are very light grey:

This is the hallway (the main space of it) looking towards the kitchen, which is a hot mess. I had not yet re-installed my wall shelf/coat rack on the left wall:
