  • Grey hallway with wall-hung basket storage and bicycle

    Keep a hallway scheme simple by painting a single wall in an on-trend grey. Choose an easy-on-the-eye mid tone that keeps the space practical and light but still warm. If you lack the space for large pieces of storage furniture, think about wall-hung shelving. This space features hanging baskets that not only provide cubby holes for hallway paraphernalia, but have the look of display pieces, too.

  • Country-house stairwell with picture gallery

    A small internal hallway will always benefit from an all-white decorating scheme. This one stops short of coolness with the addition of a plain neutral carpet that flows into the adjoining rooms. Break up a run of white walls with a selection of favourite pictures, photographs or art in matching frames – these ones in a burnished gold finish have real impact.

  • White country hallway with patterned staircase

    Give personality to painted stairs by pasting patterned wallpaper to the risers. Alternate different designs in fresh colours to draw the eye up the stairs and keep things looking bright. Pastel shades such as these work really well in a country cottage and although it may all appear to be a bit random, the look is extremely well thought-out – after all, even the rug at the bottom of the stairs matches the colours of the wallpaper.

    Balancing the inside-outside feel in a room with a view can, potentially, be tricky. Here, a monochrome palette keeps this hallway space fresh – and functional as a place to make and take phone calls – without detracting from the country views beyond.

  • Hallway landing with mirrored window frame

    Create an optical illusion on a landing by hanging a recycled window frame fitted with glass. Here the reflection suggests both a window and a second stairwell – a great way to bring a touch more light into a traditionally dark area of the house. Go for uncovered whitewashed stairs and clad the return wall in tongue-and-groove panelling painted in gentle grey for a country touch – and who wouldn’t be without a rather large ampersand?

  • Hallway mirror decorated for Easter

    A welcoming garland and ornamental rabbits set the tone for Easter visitors in this country hallway.

Easter cards perched on the mirror add a colourful finishing touch.

  • Hallway with pink chair and gold leaf-decorated plates

    Plates adorned with gold-leaf eggs form part of an elegant display of china and are a subtle way to evoke an Easter theme. The rabbit cushion, meanwhile, looks stylish rather than twee thanks to its smart, abstract-patterned fabric. A basket of seasonal bulbs is the perfect way to complete any Easter scheme.
