  • Neutral hallway with Easter decorations

    Is your family going hopping mad this Easter? Then add to the excitement with pretty decorations (and lots of chocolate!). An Easter wreath, decorative eggs (why not try painting some yourself?), a bunny cushion and some pretty spring pastels are all you need to transform your space this bank holiday weekend.

  • Exposed-brick hallway with spiral staircase

    Exposed bricks and solid-oak flooring make for a super-impressive spiral staircase, where architectural design meets rustic materials. This look is all about the materials, so the oak treads have been given a very neutral-looking varnish that highlights their natural variation. A slimline handrail and white paint under the stair keep the scheme uncluttered.

  • Hallway with oversized wall clock and bench

    Make your entrance hallway something special with pieces you won’t be able to miss. Here, an oversized clock with a distressed finish takes centre stage. What else do you need to make a neutral space look cool? Not much is the answer. However, a pretty bench is ideal for taking shoes on and off.

  • Green entrance hall with Gothic arched door

    Think of your hallway as another living space. Consider your colour scheme carefully – the green paint here makes it feel like another room in the home, while white acts as a highlighter to the beautiful period details, such as the Gothic doorway. Tiles that reach into the next room help to connect the hallway to the rest of the home.

  • 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.

  • Neutral hallway with storage unit and seagrass boxes

    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).

  • Country hallway with elegant console table

    Add elegance to a country hallway with interesting pieces of furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in a townhouse. Here, the console table and starburst mirror provide interest as you walk through the door, while the reclaimed flooring enhances the rustic feel. Fun touches such as the wicker goose and love heart add character to this welcoming home.

  • Grey hallway with old pub sofa

    Furnish your hallway with individual pieces to create a truly unique scheme. Grey walls provide a striking backdrop to the old leather pub seat and antler heads. A vegetable crate has been put to good use for storing wellies, which keeps the floor mud-free.

  • Neutral hallway with stone flooring

    Make neutrals your friend in a modern hallway if you want a light and bright space. Texture is added with the different styles of flooring. Stone flooring downstairs is great in high-traffic areas; carpet on the stairs sends out comforting vibes, while deadening the sound of footsteps.

  • Neutral hall with understairs table

    The sense of flow in this hallway is greatly enhanced by the open space under the staircase. Instead of a cupboard door, a Gustvian-style table has been tucked in neatly and used to create an attractive display.

  • Dark green hallway with Marmorino wall plaster

    Wall coverings are a great way to give any space a distinct identity. Here, Marmorino plaster in a dark green colour and a velvety looking finish creates a moody atmosphere, accentuating the white woodwork on the staircase and doors.

  • Traditional hallway with red walls

    Give your hallway a traditional but striking look with red paint. Reminiscent of the grand homes of decades gone by, a red hallway has classic appeal that will endure. A tartan curtain creates a cosy shelter from drafts while adding another dimension to the space.

  • White hallway with colourful chandelier

    Paint a hallway in the purest of whites to create a light and bright space. A slightly off-white shade below the dado rail provides a bit of warmth. Chandeliers are excellent for emphasising high ceilings and this intricate design has plenty of space to spread some colour.

  • White hall with grey stair runner

    Go for a classic look in your hallway with neutral walls and a dark stair runner. Stair runners have a dual role, providing visual impact, while also deadening footsteps. A wallpaper at the top of the stairs marks the start of a new scheme on the next level.

  • Light-filled entrance hall with textural wallpaper

    This space has been carefully thought out so that it feels homely and welcoming, while displaying serious style. The beautifully textured wallpaper matches the paint on the other walls exactly, for a seamless look. Interesting shapes in the dark wood furniture make the most of this hallways’s generous proportions.

  • Snug corner in hallway of Scottish-inspired home

    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.

  • High ceiling staircase in modern hallway

    Make the most of your joining rooms and hallways. Here the staircase makes a pleasing contrast to high the green walls, which inspired the colour scheme throughout the house. The carpet and stair runner add a touch of luxury and warmth, while the open fire brings the whole thing together in a homely way.

  • Rustic open hallway with muted palette

    Get inspired by traditional Scottish bothies (outdoor shelters) and embrace the rich, layered palette of muted shades, rustic weaves and hand-crafted design on show in this gorgeous open hallway. Add patterned textiles for depth and comfort, and look for contrasting colours in rugs and cushions.

  • Deep blue hallway with bright, exotic Christmas decorations

    Deep, rich tones are making a real comeback, and dark blues and purples are ideal for hallways and connecting rooms. Here the rich blue is the perfect backdrop for these colourful Christmas decorations. Dried branches and artificial birds add a touch of the wild all year round.

  • 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.
