The Stylish: Hallways

It’s the first thing people see when they enter your house, here are some tips on making a great first impression

For a home that’s light and airy throughout, play with soft colours. Create a colour palette, and choose a wallpaper which will complement it. This geometric Simplicity Two wallpaper comes in a variety of pastel colours. On the other hand, if you have a fun, free-spirited home, opt for brighter colours. If you’re feeling bold, you could even paint the side of your staircase! Take a look at how Little Greene used their rich Royal Navy paint:

Don’t be afraid to use it. Especially if you have paler walls, try using pattern on the floor, in the form of staircase carpet, a runner, or floor tiles. Again, consider your chosen colour scheme, and decide to go with an unusual or conservative pattern like the Mr Jones floor tiles by Laura Ashley in Dove Grey.

 

Lighting

If your hallway is a little on the dark side, here are some solutions. Glam up an understated hallway with a chandelier, or something similar. There are so many creative takes on the classic chandelier to suit every taste. Built-in LED stair lights are a stunning way of lighting the way in the day, or, more fabulously, at night. For a more vintage feel, try wall sconces.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a large hallway, create interest and consider utilising the space by adding a dressing table, seating/shoe storage, coat rack, umbrella holder, or mirror. Place some family photos on the walls to greet guests when they enter. The honeycomb ‘Honefoss’  mirror is by IKEA, and the hexagons can be hung any which way to suit your space.
