I thought I'd give my eyes a break from all the colour that has been on the blog lately and show you another perfect monochrome scheme that caught my eye on Pinterest.

This light, bright hallway is totally the opposite to what mine's going to be!  Simple styling gives this little nook a purpose and I love the miniature gallery wall - displaying pictures in an unconventional layout is a great way to create a focal point and in this case it draws the eye upwards so you really get a sense of the space.  

The only thing it's missing is a chair so you can linger in this lovely area while you put your shoes on.  Having said that, I'd never want to leave so it's probably just as well there isn't one!
