Paint the ceiling the same colour as the walls

The ceiling in our hallway
Our hallway is my "room for experimentation". Since it is not that big and it is not a space where you stay for hours, it is less scary to try something new here. Ideal for painting the ceiling along with the walls. In addition, it is not a large surface so the physical work can also be overseen. Top!
I thought it would be nice to paint all the walls this time instead of just the right wall, so the intention was to let the colour of the ceiling continue downwards. Last year we painted the corridor wall in the autumn colours of Pure & Original. This time I wanted to get started with the HUIZEDOP paint colours. I have 3 basic colors that we use throughout the house. This is an ideal colour palette and can be used for multiple interior styles. Our house colours are Slate Gray, Evening Shadow and Island White. On this page you can read which colours we have used in which room and also which paints from Pure & Original we like to use. If you are looking for the perfect basis for your interior, then I recommend this colour palette!
The hallway is quite dark and although I think it would be cool to paint Slate Gray on the ceiling, I didn't think it would be wise, so I chose Evening ShadowEvening Shadow. A very nice mouse gray shade. We used Classico chalk paint on both the walls and the ceiling. An ultra-matte wall paint. You apply it with a roller and with 2 layers it is perfectly covering and streak-free! Really great because painting a ceiling without stripes is not easy. Now it appears again that it really is largely due to the paint.
The layout of our small hallway
Good is good, so the bench could stay and of course the mirror! Behind the meter cupboard we have the coats hanging and a shoe rack for the children, but in practice the children's coats always swung on the bench. I was done with this, so I bought a second coat rack! Something we should have done much earlier. Since this coat rack hangs, the hall is a lot tidier and that makes me happy!
When it was completely finished, decorated, styled and the jackets hanging on the coat rack, I was really very happy. What a beautiful hallway it had become again. The colours are of course beautiful, the effect of painting the ceiling and the combination with the mirror and the bench remains great. In short, another successful metamorphosis and I am very curious what you think of it.
