Help with colours, dark hallway.

Hello. Moved into our Victorian mid terrace 6 months ago. There's nothing wrong with our hallway and landing but the walls need a lick of paint and I'm overthinking what colour.

There's no windows but light bursts in through the top bedroom window in the afternoon, and the front door panels in the morning. The dark carpet doesn't help one bit and we plan to change this to something lighter or maybe even stripped boards.

For one small wall in the hallway, I have gorgeous white wallpaper with sketchy navy boats (we took inspiration from the honeymoon B&B we stayed in in Cornwall!) and it's also a nice touch as our house address is Harbour Rd, so I'd quite like to keep with nautical ideas to some degree.

Floor is lovely Victorian tiles, hints of duck egg blue in them but don't know whether this colour would be too much on the walls.

Last consideration - the walls are imperfect - would prefer Matt to hide this but also needs to be wipeable (filthy handed kids.)

Anyone have any ideas?
