The hallway with this photo looks like some sort of million dollars. It’s classy and understated, like something outside of a 1920′s novel around the upper class. The metal and black leather recliners are cool and contemporary, while the beige walls and gold table lamps add a note of warmth. The door is usually painted black–an unusual selection, but one that ties in nicely while using other black elements from the room. I am also enchanted with the round, metallic lamps over head.
You might think that you would have to hire an experienced decorator and spend a fortune to make your house look this good.
Functional hallways connect the spaces at home, but they’re also some sort of canvas ready for redecorating. Use these tips to produce a hallway that’s decorated plus the rest of your home.
Turn a vacant hallway space in a place to stop and take notice. Transform a blank wall in a family gallery. Before you hang anything, trace the contour of your frames on top of kraft paper, and tape the shapes towards the wall to plan ones arrangement until you’re pleased with the look. Complete the style with other cozy elements to feature interest to your lobby. Incorporate a bench, paisley jogger, and pretty throw pillows to make a welcoming vignette. Or make use of a narrow table or bookcase to come up with a family collection, fresh new flowers, or an assortment of pretty candles, knickknacks, and dishware. When decorating any hallway, keep safety as the primary goal. Use rubber grippers under rugs, and choose narrow furniture that will not impede traffic.
Keep Hallway Decor Simple
Hallway decorating doesn’t need to be complex to be impactful. A few simple accessories and furniture pieces can create a gorgeous transitional space. In this front hallway, a half-circle table anchors two pieces of art on the wall. The arrangement creates a unified vignette, giving passersby a reason to pause. If you have a floor you’d like to show off but are wary of wear and tear, consider a narrow runner. It protects the main walkway, while still keeping the floor on display.
Color-Coordinate the Hallway
Hallways physically connect spaces. Complete the connection with a visual tie between spaces through the buffer of a hallway. Decorate the hallway with a color from one space, which then carries that color into the connected spaces beyond. Here, a gallery of green-frame photos carries the preppy Kelly green of the downstairs space into the home’s upper quarters.
