  • Edwardian terrace with dark colours and dramatic interior

    Create a dramatic entrance to your home, that gives a clue to what design lies inside. Here the dark door with intricate window details suggests something more exciting than your average Edwardian terrace. Don’t forget to think about the porch or entranceway. Here the tiles are interesting and colourful and show that someone’s really considered what people will notice first.

  • Dramatic white hallway with Christmas decorations

    Add a little dramatic interest with unusual pieces such as this hallway table. The owner describes it as ‘looking Gothic and slightly mad’ and we have to agree it adds a touch of Tim Burton to the otherwise classic home. It’s perfect to display a little Christmas cheer too – we love the cute red Christmas house and wee Santa figure.

  • Arched hallway with flag-stone floor

    This sleek space links the sitting room to the kitchen with the utility room and snug at the opposite end of the house. To break up its length, arches were built and each section is further delineated by lamps, which the owner had kept in storage for years until she found the perfect spot for them.

  • Period hallway with statement patterned furniture

    A tropical print rug and mesmerising patterned upholstered bench bring a lightness and sense of fun to this hallway space. Painting the panelled walls a soft, chalky pink helps to keep the patterned elements calm, rather than crazy, and ensure a warm welcome to a period home.

  • Green panelled hallway with pocket bunting

    Team deep green with red in your hallway for traditional festive spirit. A crafted pocket Advent calendar made from a mix of country fabrics joyfully adorns a practical peg rail. Delicate decorations hang alongside, enhancing the country Christmas charm. The rich panelled wall makes the perfect backdrop to a bijou button chair. A charcoal runner and soft tartan cushion keeps the look smart and sophisticated.


  • 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.

  • Festive hallway with smart sofa and sculpture

    If you have the space, putting up a Christmas tree in the hallway adds an extra special welcome for guests and visitors. This smart space features a lovely sofa, dressed with festive red velvet cushions, and a warming rug. A modern sculpture and wirework chandelier bring a contemporary feel. Having a sofa in a hallway creates a useful extra socialising space if you have a houseful over Christmas.

  • Country style Christmas hallway decorations

    Brighten dark evenings with the glow of metallic lights and pretty mirrored decorations in the hallway. Arrange pine branches to create a rich green backdrop then place candles in pierced or shaped candle holders, like this pretty Dutch-style house. Add further candles in holders with a birch-bark exterior, or place delightful pine cone shaped candles in with the real thing. Complete the rustic display with a seasonally appropriate word or phrase – here, SNOW (in a rusted finish) adds the perfect Christmas finishing touch.

  • Contemporary rustic hallway Christmas tree

    Welcome guests in style with a small tree for the hallway placed in an attractively aged zinc pot with copper handles. Dress the tree with just a few ceramic decorations – pale grey contrasts beautifully with dark green pine needles – while a few white tree lights are essential for a touch of twinkle. Place the tree on a rustic bench to add height and surround it with presents wrapped in interesting fabrics – an eco-friendly, re-usable way to give.

  • 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.
