Neutral hallway with box storage unit

Hallways are high-traffic zones that can be tricky to keep tidy. But as with every room, good storage is the key. This shelving unit is filled with storage boxes that will hide all the bits and bobs you’d rather were kept out of view. A wooden bench is an ideal spot for putting on wellies (or for petting pooches).

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.

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.

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.
