    Statement hallway

    This statement entrance has been created with a large tree-form stencil. The result is a horizon that doubles as a dado. Although there is intricate detailing, the subtle block colouring ensures the look is unfussy and contemporary.

    Georgian hallway

    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.

    Make the most of a large hallway by using a simple table from The Conran Shop as a communal space to eat or simply left as a dramatic centrepiece. A comfortable Take 5 wing chair tucked discreetly under the stairs makes a cosy nook for phone calls, while the generously patterned Rug Company rug helps to create the feeling of a room.

    Stripes hallway

    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. Console tables don’t have to be bold and brassy, opt for a simple design that doesn’t dominate your look and choose one with a drawer to keep keys in one place.
