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.

Modern essentials basket for guests

Modern essentials basket for guests

Welcome overnight guests with a basket filled with fresh towels, a linen robe and cosy throws. It’s a thoughtful way to make sure they have everything they need. Attach a label with their initial if you have several visitors. Keep the colours of towels, robe and throws in the same tonal range to create a relaxed and welcoming feel. Understated decorations such as this simple lit star keep the setting subtle.

Overturn convention by stringing baubles from a pendant – Sid Santa would definitely approve. A good first impression is key in your hallway, so step away from the norm by introducing a riot of colour and punk-inspired accessories into your scheme. A large red chair draped in the Union Jack will provide guests with a place to perch while they take of their shoes for an evening of festive frolics.

Make a grand entrance with a simple, neutral scheme – sometimes less is more. Using white and muted tones accentuates natural light, creating the perfect contrast against the rich natural texture of exposed floorboards. Finishing touches like a radiator cover that matches the walls and a luxurious stair runner in an understated pattern will finish the look.
