The wooden floor has been painted with Potmolen paint, and the fabric for the covered chair is from Vanessa Arbuthnott.

Warm cream-patterned Colefax & Fowler wallpaper reflects light, while original stone flags add texture. An 18th century coffer and other antique furniture and paintings from Guy Dennler Antiques create interest. An old wicker shopping trolley is filled with logs, an antique umbrella stand is decorative and useful. The open door frames the courtyard and a stone urn filled with lavender.

A striped carpet makes a striking statement on the hallway staircase and draws the eye up to the landing above. Walls are kept pale so the scheme doesn’t feel too boxy. A built-in storage cupboard is ideal for tidying away shoes, hats and gloves and keeping the limited space clutter-free.

A fresh colour scheme with touches of wood creates a warm welcome in this hallway. A large mirror hangs above the console table reflecting the natural light.

This all-white hallway has coastal views and is accessorised with sea-themed ornaments.
