White hallway with grey painted stair runner

White hallway with grey painted stair runner

Take an innovative approach to painting your staircase. Rather than one colour of paint, choose two so that you create the effect of a stair runner. Paint banisters white so the grey really stands out and you don’t have lots of different shades to confuse the look. And make masking tape your friend to get a straight line.

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.

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.

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.
