We’ve always been taught that first impressions are important, and the same goes for your home. As the space that welcomes you at the end of a long day, and the first glimpse your guests are given of your personal style, your hallway is the perfect opportunity to make a statement. What that looks like – a secret pop of pink, all-over colour, or a floral feature wall – is up to you.
A Strong Start
Deep, strong colour doesn’t just make for a memorable introduction to your home, it also creates contrast with the rooms coming off it, making them appear lighter and larger.
The most welcoming spaces don’t take themselves too seriously – let your artwork do the talking with a colourful gallery wall, paper a feature wall in oversized florals, or paint an alcove in a shade that makes you smile.
Fresh and Bright
Clean and crisp, white woodwork is a classic choice for hallways, no matter what you pair it with. Try a glossy black bannister or deep wall colour for striking contrast, or break up a large-scale pattern with a white dado.
