Monochrome chic. Simple is best in a narrow hallway. White painted stairs make them appear wider and the grey runner is both practical and elegant. Seek out a slim console - vintage or modern - thats useful and decorative but not space-consuming.
Love this look for the back stairs. The gray carpet is lovely.
Enjoying the single dark wall here. Something I would consider for my own hallway...
