Experiment with colour and pattern in a hallway.
"Go bold when decorating a staircase or hallway, since we don't pass a lot of time in those spaces," advises Montreal blogger Kim Vallée. "This cheerful striped carpet adds a fun element to a traditional staircase. Instead of the mirror, I would hang a single colour art piece to pull one hue from the runner."
