Hallways: Wild, wild wallpaper

Oh, the hazards of blogging: I almost forgot that I promised to round up hallway inspiration!

I actually had a lot of fun pulling these images together, despite the fact that I myself can't afford to wallpaper the upstairs hallway, the long boring space that I'm thinking of revamping next.  And despite the fact that I lost this entire post and had to resource most of the images--twice.  I know the formatting isn't consistent, but I'll tell you what: blogger just kicked my ass.

No introduction necessary.  I'll keep my oohs and aahs to myself.

And, of course, stripes. They work thick or thin, black and white, two-tone, or all out color.  Traditional, modern, or funky.  Talk about versatile: no wonder they're everywhere.

We've seen less of this, I think, but I love it in a long hallway to break up the tunnel effect.

Now this last one is not technically a hallway, but when I stumbled upon it flipping through my Domino collection, I realized it must have burned itself onto my retinas only to remembered later.  That's right, my plan for the upstairs hallway had been to do tone on tone raspberry stripes.  Hmmm.  So original!


Well, I'm exhausted. what do you think: could you handle such a bold statement in a hallway? Or is it just too much?
