Light-filled modern hallway with textural wallpaper

Light-filled entrance hall with textural wallpaper

Make your entrance hall a great introduction to the rest of the house. This space has been carefully thought out so that it feels homely and welcoming, while displaying serious style. The beautifully textured wallpaper matches the paint on the other walls exactly, for a seamless look, while the floor tiles and floor runner are in complementary neutral tones that enhance the space precisely because they aren’t an exact match. Interesting shapes in the dark wood furniture offer up a colour contrast and also make the most of this hallways’s generous proportions.

Snug corner in hallway of Scottish-inspired home

Dress up antique furniture with cosy fabrics. Cushions, rugs and blankets in a miscellany of pattern soften the otherwise unadorned simplicity of this hall for a beautiful back-to-basics effect. The tones of the painted wood offer the perfect backdrop here and the mix-n-match prints liven up the whole room.

Deep, rich tones are making a real comeback, and dark blues and purples are ideal for hallways and connecting rooms. Here the rich blue is the perfect backdrop for these colourful Christmas decorations. Dried branches and artificial birds add a touch of the wild all year round.

Hallway and staircase in a riot of pattern and colour

Hallway and staircase in a riot of colour and pattern

Create a fabulous blur of colourful patterns with a variety of wallpaper and rugs. This fabulously exotic mix of peacock features and jaguars consciously clashes with the door’s colourful stained class window and the patterned rug. For Christmas, there are white stars along the bannisters, bright birds and iridescent tinsel to increase the chaos of colour for the season.

Edwardian terrace with dark colours and dramatic interior

Edwardian terrace with dark colours and dramatic interior

Create a dramatic entrance to your home, that gives a clue to what design lies inside. Here the dark door with intricate window details suggests something more exciting than your average Edwardian terrace. Don’t forget to think about the porch or entranceway. Here the tiles are interesting and colourful and show that someone’s really considered what people will notice first.

Dramatic white hallway with Christmas decorations

Dramatic white hallway with Christmas decorations

Add a little dramatic interest with unusual pieces such as this hallway table. The owner describes it as ‘looking Gothic and slightly mad’ and we have to agree it adds a touch of Tim Burton to the otherwise classic home. It’s perfect to display a little Christmas cheer too – we love the cute red Christmas house and wee Santa figure.

Opt for a rustic woodland feel in your hallway this Christmas. Here a bark texture effect wallpaper creates a rustic neutral backdrop, while a raw wood console table adds an artisan feel. Continue the woodland theme with a snow-frosted wreath and robin Christmas decorations, and display gifts wrapped with green ribbons.

Illuminate the hallway to create a warm and welcoming look for guests at Christmas time. Here a traditional garland and twinkling fairy lights have been woven around the staircase, while candlesticks and tealights add a soft glow in the nook beneath the stairs. An eyecatching wall clock is perfect for this space, alongside an occasional table with fresh flowers and gifts ready for guests.

Give a traditional hallway with period features a contemporary touch. Here walls have been painted in a modern grey shade, with a fresh white staircase that highlights the beautiful Edwardian tiled floor. Opt for a simple herringbone weave stair carpet for comfort underfoot. The faux ivy, eucalyptus and pine garland looks beautiful with baubles woven through.

Green panelled hallway with pocket bunting

Green panelled hallway with pocket bunting

Team deep green with red in your hallway for traditional festive spirit. A crafted pocket Advent calendar made from a mix of country fabrics joyfully adorns a practical peg rail. Delicate decorations hang alongside, enhancing the country Christmas charm. The rich panelled wall makes the perfect backdrop to a bijou button chair. A charcoal runner and soft tartan cushion keeps the look smart and sophisticated.


Peacock blue hallway with gold console table and mirror

Peacock blue hallway with gold console table and mirror

Add easy impact in a hallway with a row of identical wreaths propped on a shelf, rail or mantel, and statement decorations, such as giant paper bells casually arranged to fill an empty corner. Let a gold console table be the focus of all your hallway elements, including a table lamp and gold telephone. Then bring in lanterns and fairy lights to make the most of all those reflective surfaces.
