Dress up your hallway with refreshing colour and pattern. Draw the eye from the door to the floor with a floaty leaf-motif curtain and a lattice design washable rug. For an extra hit of colour, paint tongue-and-groove panelling to head height in a zingy shade of lime on the walls. Keep the look balanced by painting remaining woodwork white and go for rustic storage pieces like old fruit crates and vintage suitcases.
