    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.

  • Industrial-style hallway with festive decorations and red chair

    Industrial-style hallway with festive decorations and red chair

    Overturn convention by stringing baubles from a pendant – Sid Santa would definitely approve. A good first impression is key in your hallway, so step away from the norm by introducing a riot of colour and punk-inspired accessories into your scheme. A large red chair draped in the Union Jack will provide guests with a place to perch while they take of their shoes for an evening of festive frolics.

  • Grand hallway with flashes of gold

    Grand hallway with flashes of gold

    First impressions mean everything so creating a grand entrance hall is key. Use flashes of gold and lashings of foliage to really make an impact. The organic form of the large foliage-filled Gilles Caffier vase and the trees in the painting give a natural dimension to the otherwise sleek, urbane décor.
