Hallway colour schemes to inspire you

26 images

First impressions count for a lot, so choosing the right hallway colour scheme is more important than you might think

A beautifully decorated hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house and introduces your own interior style for guests and loved ones as soon as they step through the door. From a palette of bright colours to dark navy hallways with an edge of grown-up glamour, check out these decorating ideas and be inspired.

With literally every variation in the spectrum to choose from, deciding  between potential hallway colour schemes has got to be fairly nerve-racking even for the most daring decorator.

When it comes to paint colour, you can either go for bold statement hues or choose a welcoming and soothing palette. Neutrals will obviously ensure that your hallway feels light and airy, but also consider light and mid-tone shades of yellow, green, pink and blue – pastel colours will feel cheery and uplifting. And, of course, there’s always the perfect grey paint for a timeless shade.
