Great idea, just needs wood tone to tone down a bit, pale maroon would look good too (a pastel red-ish purple color to pop w floor). ceiling lights cool idea, pinkish looks good w floor's yellow-green.
DIY floor idea Nothing unusual about the bare wood floorboards. However we like the idea of stenciling on the black diamond pattern. It really pulls together this hall floor and is a cheap way to upgrade your hall.
Tip of the Day: Painted and stenciled floors are a thrifty décor solution for high-traffic areas. You can paint over concrete floors, any sort of wood floor you’d rather not refinish. Maybe for the laundry room or bathroom.
