Warm welcome

August 21, 2012

It’s a space I never get tired of looking at. Mainly, I think, because of the initial impression it gives you – it’s important to get it just right. What am I talking about? Hallways, of course!

Now, you may already have your hall nicely decorated, but don’t let that stop you – no one really needs a reason to redecorate, sometimes we do so simply because we can. After all, there’s nothing more fun for an interiors enthusiast than planning the next scheme.

Here’s a few beautiful ideas to whet your appetite.

Carpet in a hallway just looks so inviting and this Natural Look design by Carpetright is in a practical grey shade.



If you’re lucky enough to have a hallway of this size, why not go all out with the glamour? Statement furniture and an elegant glass pendant certainly create a room to be proud of.

This stair runner cosies up a plain painted staircase and is bang on trend for this year’s autumn/winter season.

Get creative and add a splash of colour by painting your banisters or banustrades. I love this quirky hall, and the green spindles look stunning when set against crisp white.


Dark and mysterious

Not all of us have the space to achieve a bedroom like this, but it’s a great example of how taking your time to really think about your scheme and what look you want to achieve can pay off.

I love the moody, dark tones of this room, with its elegantly draped curtains and period details. There’s just an air of grandeur about it, and the mirrors either side of the bed are a great way to bounce some light around if you have a small, dark room.


Geometric style

What better way to make a stylish entrance than to add touches of on-trend geometrics to your hallway? My favourite feature has got to be the framed carpet on the wall – it creates impact and is a sure-fire talking point!

Stylish stripes

Tired of your carpet? The graphic striped flooring in this living room makes as much of a statement as the rich aqua wall colour. Team with an upholstered chair in a similar fabric for extra pizzazz!
