back hallway update

Spending money on a part of the house that is mostly only seen by our family is questionable. But I finally decided that we are the people living in this space the most, and I want it to be pretty!

This is the back hallway from my garage. There is a small coat closet with bins for coats, shoes, and such, to the left of the mirror, and the back bathroom is to the right of the mirror...

I just purchased this gorgeous new runner online. I loved the blues and reds which work perfectly with the wallpaper in my back bathroom! It makes me so happy when I get home and walk in the back door :)

Could it be prettier?

This wallpaper is perfect for me because it doesn't show the million nail holes from the 50 different things I've hung in here over the past 20 years.

I also had Andy Moore paint the cabinet a pretty blue :)

I'm squatting on the floor in the corner by the toilet to get this shot...

And this is looking the other way, towards the laundry room at the end of this hallway...

And of course, the gorgeous new laundry room wallpaper!! (full post here)

I bought that bread rack and that darling stool at the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show here in Omaha. Plus a couple small antiques on the shelves!

Won't it be pretty?

I was lucky enough to receive an email from a longtime reader recently, who knows my obsession/love for Ira Yeager. She had this pair of paintings and was looking to sell them. I adore them!

I bought this rug from a company in Atlanta, J & D Oriental Rugs. I found them on 1st Dibs, and then went to their website to really dig deep. I could find a rug for every room in my house. I love the colors with the brick floors...

Other updates around the house...

Had these pillows made for my bed to brighten things up. I had gold check on the three large square pillows, and found this gorgeous discontinued Fortuny fabric to replace them... I think it's perfect!

As I mentioned in my instagram story, I am so sick of spider mites! If killing my ivy wasn't enough, I happen to be allergic to spider mites, and they really come around during the summer months it seems. Do you struggle with spider mites on your ivy? The last two I bought didn't last long at all... I begrudgingly bought something to replace the ivy, and to my surprise, I like it!

Stay tuned for updates in the future!

Have a fun Fourth of July week!

I'll be posting on my instagram account... Click here to follow along.
