You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!

The first few seconds on entering a home are when first
impressions are made and whether we feel comfortable and relaxed or not.

There’s nothing quite like walking into a space and instantly feeling a sense of warmth and comfort.

We all deserve arriving home to a nice welcome.

So, lets give some attention to the design & decor of the rather neglected Entrance Hall.

Whether we live in a Mansion with a Grand Entrance Hall or an Apartment with an Entrance passage,
with some clever planning and stylish features, we can achieve both beauty & function…

Halls tend to have ample wall space so consider a photograph gallery or a large mirror or add interest
to a long narrow hall with a dramatic wallpaper on
one wall or a rug runner.

The thing about a hall is that as an area you walk through and don’t spend a lot of time in, you can add a touch of drama without getting tired of it.

So, come on in & lets put a bit of your personality of show.

        

         Green brings life to any space

      

A big space with a little pop of colour adds a touch of warmth

     

Textiles soften a space adding colour & pattern

From fun colours –

to funky patterns –

to something more Formal


Wallpaper is an easy way to add personality to your Entrance Hall

Lighting a candle or turning on a lamp for a cosy
welcoming ambiance as you and your family come
in the door, is a simple way of creating an escape
from the busy outside world


An elegant Entrance hall made friendly and welcoming, just add some grass baskets,
lots of knobs for hanging up bags & jackets

 


Perhaps you want to create a Zen feeling on arriving home, by simply introducing some Eastern flavours this is easy to achieve.


A colourful rug can bring a scheme together beautifully

Soft colours – Simple elegance

             

The greenery brings life to this otherwise very simple Entrance Hall

Natural muted textures with a couple of simple grass baskets with just some favourite decor pieces or poppies for colour!

Take inspiration from this beautiful green door, a cactus adds textural interest & an element of fun!

These clever decorating ideas will help you create a space that’s a pleasure to come home to.
