Summer season is finally here and that means it’s time to bring out the shorts and flip-flops, and don’t forget to slather on that sunscreen!

With that being said, it is also time to introduce some bright, vibrant colors to liven your house and more specifically to brighten your interior finishings. Often times, our hallways get neglected for the spaces that we spend most of our time in, such as our bedrooms, kitchen, living room and so forth. However, our hallways are just as important as any other living space, after all, they are the tunnels that connect all the spaces within our house and they document a journey from one room to another.

Here are some of our favorite hallways.

Stay tuned till the end for some summer trend alerts!




These gorgeous bright yellow doors draw instant attention to this beautiful, brooding hallway that wears a dark forest green color, and is a great transition into the summer!

Not to mention, the beautiful baseboard and panel mould in tandem with the color palette creates a rustic ambiance with a touch of class.






This hallway primarily wears a variety of cooler tones that range from teal to navy blue that essentially invites the summer breeze. The dark chair rail contrasts against the lighter tones on the wall that makes for a simplistic wall treatment, while leading guests from one room to another, effortlessly.

Meanwhile, the neutral tone of the ceiling and subtlety of crown moulding creates a beautiful contrast to the rest of the hallway, which radiates an understated elegance.




Last but definitely not least, one of our favorite hallways is this pink paradise!

The gorgeous and cheeky pink colors add a playful vibe to the hallway that is truly unique. Also, how can we forget that remarkably patterned wallpaper!

The color choices along with what seems to be the perfect wallpaper and three-panel door together create a refreshed, yet vintage feel. We bet the owner of this hallway must feel like they are time-traveling every time they venture down this hallway!



Trend Alert & Tips

Doors are, oh, so important in any living space. They can be any space’s complementary or statement piece. That is why you shouldn’t be afraid to color your doors this summer!

In addition, another trend we spotted was painting your casing the same color as your door. Just recheck the images above in case you didn’t notice.

Painting your casing and door the same color not only adds a sense of uniformity, but it also makes your door appear larger than it actually is and, in turn, makes your hallway look more spacious!
