i know it sounds boring but u cant go wrong with magnolia- we just painted our whole house magnolia and im looking forward to adding lots of coloured accessories, u could put a coloured Vase in your hall or a rug or painting on the wall that would lift the magnolia colour- its also a really warm colour- some colours can be cold and if you have tiles on the floor is can add to the coldness esp in the winter.

We have moved int our new house & just love our hallway, get so many comments on it, (had interior consultant help me with colours) the biggest thing she said you must take into cinsideration is the amount of light your hall gets. Our hall is quite big with a huge landing window and two big glass panels each end of the front door, os it is always full of light and very open looking. We went with cream/stone type colour porcelain tiles on downstairs floor which has a centerpiece with creams/browns through it. Stairs left natural white oak. Up my long wall - running up the stairs iykwim we put wallpaper, it is a pale green with large gold & cream floral& leaf print. the other three walls are the pale green. I think the name of the paint was providence(sp) - dulux, i have just ordered my curtains to dress the windows & Loving it all!! In my opinion sage green darkens a apace a lot, our last house had quite a small entrance hall & the couple before us had it painted a deep shade of green & it really closed the space in, left it quite cold looking, we painted over it (4coats) in a buiscuit colour & wow the difference it made we couldnt get over it. Good luck with your decission

we've just painted our hall, stairs and landing bright yellow! We also have crema porcelain tiles in the hall and a cream/coffee carpet on the stairs and landing and we LOVE the yellow, think it works really well. It's not a pale yellow either, really sunny and warm without being orangey - if that makes sense! It's like a warm sunshine bath every time we come out of the bedroom - love it! I agree with the last poster though - light is really important - we have loads of light, including a skylight on the stairs and it's all really open so could go with a darker shade, but you'd want to be careful your sage isn't too dark if you are a bit sparse on the light, last thing you want is your h/s/l to feel dark when it's supposed to be welcoming. For me, magnolia is a no-go, we're colourful people (kitchen is red and light blue, bedroom a rich blue and we're working our way through all the rooms... all changed from the verying shades of magnolia when we moved in!) but I do get the point that people want a clean space to accessorise! I fully advocate your choice of green though, just be cautious of the shade depending on your light situation.
