  • Hallway with storage unit complete with helpfully labelled baskets

    Divide and conquer. This handy hallway storage unit is beautifully organised, thanks to an array of stylish woven baskets complete with colour-coded labels. With a basket for each household member this is a great way to ensure personal items don’t get mixed up.

  • Wood panelled hallway with rustic metal-framed console and plants

    Nothing gives a positive vibe like plants, so what better way to create a happy welcome. Use them to fill spaces large and small, choosing baskets for larger specimens (they’re easier to move around that way) and grouping little ones into tiny clusters.

  • Modern hallway with yellow ombre stairway and grey walls

    Start by painting the treads to match your other woodwork, then choose a paint chart in a colour you love and buy tester pots in as many shades as your have stairs. Start with the darkest at the bottom and work up, using a lighter shade on each riser. The bright yellows bring the grey walls to life – or try this idea with shades of pink.

  • Tropical hallway with palm-print wallpaper and ceramic furnishings

    Yellowy-green shades naturally freshen and energise a space, while keeping the vibe cool and calm. They work brilliantly in rooms that overlook outdoor spaces, blurring the lines between inside and outdoors. Mottled stone ceramic pots help contribute to this effect, evoking a shaded garden in a hot, humid country. The finished look is funky and summery, but still smooth and refined.

  • Black hallway with painted white stair treads

    Black isn’t a common colour to decorate with, but boy does it look good. The key to decorating with dark colours like this is to make sure you have plenty of contrast with brightening and lightening white. The stair treads here keep the look perfectly balanced, for example.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
