    So very bright and fun! And yes, you should add the crosses to your shop. (maybe in other colors too) Have a great day!

  2. Julia – that wall is AMAZING!! I am loving the black and white and would never have thought to use crosses…I am a huge owl fan and he looks gorgeous on that black wall! Great job!

  3. Wow, this is so unique Julia, I love it! Your clever ideas always surprise me. I love the star light too. Where is it from? And yes, you should definitely add these to the shop!

  4. Wow, such a difference, it looks great, so much brighter. And your owl also looks great there.

  5. Love this space! One thing that caught my eye after inn admiring this awesome transformation is the cut out in the door for the cats. Do you have a tutorial on your blog on this? I need to do this for our laundry room for the cat’s to have access to their boxes. Thanks!

  6. L.O.V.E this! What a transformation! Maybe, my favorite of yours so far! Do you feel like the Valspar Ultra White comes off like a true bright white in person? I’ve been on the hunt for a great white (after nixing BM Decorator’s White). We have quite a few spaces that are darker with no natural light so I need something great. Anyways, I LOVE your hallway and that owl art is still one of my favorites.

    1. Thanks so so much and yes I adore the white. All my other whites look dirty now and I created a ripple effect ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. This is crazy, insane good! It came out so fantastic and I’m a huge fan of graphic black and white. Plus, the owl print…love!

  8. Wow, I wish my tiny hallway was half that spectacular. I love every tiny little detail. What caught my eye is the kitty kat door…… you know me, I pay attention to the critter stuff a bit more. I know I have seen the door before but it is special.

    1. Forgot to answer a loud YES to sell them. And I would love to make a light pendant like your gold one…. even if out of cardboard….. wondering if I could make one and attach it to the ceiling in my tiny dining room….. these new light bulbs don’t get so hot as incandescent ones did…. thinking.

  9. Outstanding!! What an impact the contrast makes. I’m new to your blog so wondering about what appears in one photo of the bathroom. Do you have gold circles on the ceiling? Would love to see a picture of that room as I’m wanting to do something with gold dots in either a spare bedroom or spare bathroom.

  10. What a transformation! Love the colors…great artwork and that ceiling light…awesome!

  11. That looks awesome! Everything about it looks amazing. Good job!

  12. I literally cannot get over how much I absolutely LOVE this space! You nailed it…100%!!!! Great job, Julia!

    And YES, add those to your shop!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. oh, wow—it looks SO GOOD! nice work….and, yes, definitely add the crosses! (I’m pretty sure I’m going to be ordering something from you for my bathroom soon :))

  14. so crazy impressed! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I’ve never worked with wall vinyl before, what did you have to do?

  15. Oh my gosh Julia, that is one rocking hall way. So good. That owl. So fab for that space. I love that cat-door in your door. So smart. I love everything about this design. That cabinet is beyond awesome!!! Love everything!!

    Yesterday after I saw your close-up teaser, I was looking at my entry hall and thinking…. copper crosses on this wall… hmmmmm ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Love love love Julia! You nailed it! I have seen that blanket a couple times on IG. Love the pattern! Translates so well on your hallway. I thought I loved the stripes but of course that was before you blew me away with this! Way better:)


  17. So awesome Julia! Love it so much that I’m burning the pancakes I’m cooking. Can’t pay attention to anything else ;). Beautiful!

  18. Wow! I never would have thought to do something so bold but it looks really great.

  19. It’s fantastic!!! i actually wanted to do our entry way in gold crosses, but haven’t got there yet. I really like that black and gold combo though.

  20. Simply marvelous! You’re a rock star, Julia! I love the wall. I have seen a similar blanket around and want it even more after seeing your gorgeous hallway.

  21. This looks great! I love the crosses and the light fixture together.

  22. So freakin’ awesome! Especially with that owl art. (I may actually have squealed when I saw it.)

  23. I really liked your stripes because they are a bit different from the rest of the striped hallways out there in blogland…and there are many, but the crosses are SO unique and spectacular! Wow. I was just thinking this morning about paint options other than stripes and chevron, both of which I’m over. This is great.

    1. Thanks so much! I will always love stripes, I have since I was a little girl but I am also glad there are other options out there ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love this pattern! It looks SO good! I love how it looks with your light floors. Yay!

  25. Love it Julia!!! It is so bold, modern, and I love all the gold accents!

    I was thinking about purchasing your star decals for one wall but not sure how many I would need. Any recommendstions?


  26. I am late, but I have to tell you that I am CRAZY about your hallway makeover! You have the perfect eye for these things – the black crosses mixed with that black accent wall, the owl art, and the gold light fixture are KILLING ME! Seriously, you are so talented! I love it!

  27. Shavonda@AHomeFullOfColor says:

    Umm yeah…Seriously with this hallway, though!! GAH! Its so freakin good Julia. There’s really not much more to say than that!

  28. OBSESSED with the star light fixture! Where did you find it?!

    1. THANKS! It’s an old Pier1 candle light holder that I converted to a light fixture ๐Ÿ˜‰

    2. Ok, now I need to know if you did a tutorial on converting it to a light fixture somewhere? I have TWO of those from my days working at Pier 1 and I cant tell you how many times I’ve almost put them in a yard sale because they’re just like weapons( deadly sharp metal points). Help a girl out please…
      Ive even got gold spray paint on hand. Just need the overall idea for how you converted it.

  29. I’m in love! Like head over heels, out of my mind love with this hall! I asked Nick the other day if I could just do this instead of wallpaper in the living room. He said no. I’m going to show him how incredible this looks!

  30. Wow I am so in love, this is definitely the best I’ve ever seen. It’s beautiful creative and unique. I’d do anything to have this in my home.

    1. Thanks so so much! It’s so easy to do too! You could totally do it in your home ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. Caitlin @ Desert Domicile says:

    Wow! You’ve done an AMAZING job, Julia! I love how your hallway looks, especially that owl! If you add those vinyl crosses to your shop, I’ll buy a set (or two…or three)! ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. Im dying over this. Not only because I love the black and white, but because I used to manage Pier 1 stores and I have TWO of those same star candle holders!!!!!!!! Those babies are like weapons, are they not?! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ive held onto them for over 10 years knowing, just knowing that some day Id see a different way to use them. I officially love you now:)

  33. Absolutely beautiful! I may just have to adapt this idea for my own room… Hmm… ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks so much Tyler. I’m glad you like it and good luck with your hallway transformation.

  34. Cute site but what i’m not seeing is any help to your loyal viewers, or perhaps I am missing the point? It’s a blog where you show off your cute d.i.y’s but you’re not actually linking to any help pages or listing directions? I’m not understanding the point of this blog except for you to show off and sell your Etsy items. #lame

    1. Hi Clara, I’m sorry you feel this way. I’d be happy to help you if you need help or directions. This is the first time I have received this complaint. I have lots of actual tutorials though that do not include a highlight of my Etsy shop items. I only have 4 items in my Etsy shop.
      Hope you have a great evening.

    Hi there Julia! Beautiful space. I came across this post from a link off Pinterest which brought me to your blog and then I just started perusing around on it.

    I am OBSESSED with that owl print, and have been looking for one. I swear I’ve seen this one before but cannot remember where. I tried looking in the previous comments to see if you posted where you got it, but did not see that anywhere. Can you share where you got it from?

    Thank you! Definitely will be reading more of your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Rebecca A Meier says:

        Hi Julia! Thanks for the reply! I KNEW that was where I’d seen it. After I commented, I remembered I’d seen it on a pillow that H&M sold, but when I looked it was gone…their stuff sells quick. But thank you so much for taking the time to respond, I do appreciate it.

        Love your house, you’ve done some great things with it. You have a good eye for style ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Thank you so so much for the sweet words. I was just thinking and they have some owl dishtowels at West Elm I think. Not the same as this one but nice too. Have a great weekend.
