I like to think of hallways as places you pass through on your way to somewhere else so a color that might not work for a whole room can in a hallway because you are moving through rather than sitting. My favorite color for a dark interior hallway is a mocha (mid-value) brown. You could also use a deep neutral blue-grey. It looks amazing hung with bright or white/black artwork and simple recessed ceiling floods will light it nicely bringing the artwork to life. (Think of how dramatic art looks in a museum when it's hung on a dark, painted wall). You'll want to consider the rooms you can see the hallway from and vice versa and choose a color that works well whatever you decide go with.

Hi, This is Elizabeth - thanks 'idontdobeige' - love the suggestion of the Command hooks. For those of you wondering what the paint color is:

Benjamin Moore 'Sparkling Sun' #2020-30

I'm a big believer in paint color name karma, and this one looked and sounded like a winner for a sunny South-facing room.
