Making an Entrance
If you want to make a real style statement and create an inviting space to come home to, then your hallway is the perfect place to start.
Designing an elegant and practical space can really set the scene for the rest of your interior, and welcome family and friends into your home.
Careful planning, well-proportioned furniture and the right accessories will all ensure your hall doesn’t become cluttered with bags, coats and shoes.
Let there be light
When it comes to interior styling, lighting can be a game changer and the entrance to your home is a prime location for a statement piece.
Sculptural pendant lighting looks fabulous with high ceilings or double height spaces, allowing the light to descend into the room. Metallics such as brushed gold and brass are on trend for this season.
Relaxed curves and orb shapes are perfect for your hall as they can encourage you to unwind as soon as you walk through the door.
Streamline your space
Getting your proportions just right is essential when selecting hallway furniture. Too large and you risk closing in the space, too small and you may be inviting clutter. Keeping your lines clean and your shapes classic is key. Referencing Scandinavian trends, light woods bring a relaxed, modern feel while introducing this season’s hottest colour of black can create a striking look, with a nod towards Japanese style.
There’s an element of practicality to consider in any room, particularly a hallway, which is such a multifunctional area. Think streamlined combinations of shelving, coat hooks and even magazine racks on the walls alongside galleries of family photos to create a personalised feel.
When it comes to accessories, minimal choices can make the biggest impact. Natural shapes and textures will keep your look on trend, and elements of greenery can give the space a fresh and fragrent ambiance.
Mirrors will enhance the feeling of space and light. We love circular frames or rounded edges to keep your finished look soft and stylish. Opt for metallic finishes for added luxury.
