A long passageway in the front of the house connects the living area one way and the bedrooms the other. All glass in the front so I'm wanting to put something on the back wall of the passage. I want a really
nice inviting entrance
The photo gives a bit of an idea , but an inside shot would really be needed , plus an idea of your favourite things .
Probably the two best guesses would be art on the walls , and/or plants . Plants would only work if it 2 metres or more deep , but boy could you have fun , with different coloured leaves , textures , heights , leafy plants , cactuses , all sorts . A marble statue or a rock water feature depending on style and taste .
Art is more personal -- family photos may be important to you , or you may like WW2 planes , or large colourful abstracts may suit your tastes and draw looks .
Other things like a wallpapered feature wall , even timber may work , but you need to suss out what suits YOU -- unless you want a home and garden magazine clone .
Thank you for your comments the passageway is not deep. I have just brought this house and don't move in for another couple of weeks. Was thinking of wallpapered feature wall. Will send more photos when I move in. I was thinking of a forest in natural tones but might be too much.
1940's NZ kitchen - small, awkward-ish layout.
Not sure where to start!
Kitchen redesign ideas needed
How to modernise the exterior?
I assume it is the wall that can be 'seen' through the glass along the front in the photo ? You can get that wallpaper with oversized leaves in a strong green and an almost safety yellow . But if you really wanted a conversation piece , how about that wallpaper , but also half a dozen of those 100mm or so round rings that you can screw to the wall in a random pattern , and have small terracota pots with a small cactus in one , a maidenhair in one , one of those soft green balls in another , a yellow grassy flaxy one , etc -- a few small real live plants for maybe $200-300 on top of the wallpaper which would be a similar figure if you did it yourself .
Not quite the right wallpaper , but this shows the direction I was thinking .
Thank you this is what I was aiming for and I think the colours would also work with the red brick and dark green paint of the house. Thank You So Much
