Please Come In....

I always forget what you can do with a hallway until I see something like the below. They are often so small, and hard to do anything with. I for one always forget how useful they are and that they make the first impression when people come in, so make a statement and be bold because you can very easily

1. Classy, old world colours but detailed and interesting makes you feel like you in a country pub where you're going to find an open fire and amazing Sunday roast (the best feeling you could get when you walk into somewhere). House to Home

2. This hallway has a really lovely 'taken from the workshop' feel to it with the worn wood coat hanger, umbrella stand and utility table. Similar things could all easily be picked up at a flea market, car boot sale or charity store. Design Files

3. A hallway is a great place to display an array of oddities and randomness as the smallish space will hold them really well. The art deco double layered frames painted on the walls are amazing and would be easy to do yourself with some masking tape and patience. Design Sponge

4. Those fairy lights across an entrance wall make it inviting and warm and somehow doesn't look Christmas'y at all. ZsaZsa Bellagio

5. Farm house, checkered flooring with bare brick above high panelled walls. Yes please. Klikk

6. This victorian inspired hallway with swirly patterned wallpaper and decorative vintage umbrellas is kept modern with the simple chest of draws and bright colours.  Pinterest

7.  Aqua blue walls, barbie pink banister, bright white stairs and parquet flooring; who knew it would make for the most incredible hallway? Bright Bazaar

8. I have always been told that in a small space you dont want to clutter the walls too much or it will make it look even smaller. But this hallway completely goes against what I was told, still giving the illusion of a spacious corridor with space for coats and even somewhere to put on your wellies. I love it!  La Petite Lavande.

9. Two tone walls with the dado railing breaking it up and keeping it fresh. The contrasting bright colours between the two rooms is really nice. Unfortunately, for me, it's ruined by the tacky butterfly frames but the idea is nice. Design Files
