Hello lovelies! I have my hands full with baking and other bits and bobs this weekend so Jenn from Arcadian Lighting has kindly written an informative and inspirational guest post on hallways/foyers for us. Enjoy!
A hallway sets the tone for the entire house – it is the first and last area of the home that a visitor will see, and this is why designing a stunning entrance is so important. Beautiful patterns/colours, a unique design, and great lighting will make all the difference in creating a gorgeous entrance to fall in love with. Here is a selection of hallways in different styles to inspire.
Give the space a focal point
The wood floors, double doors and rounded white staircase are beautiful, but it is the glass-topped table with the pretty patterned tablecloth that steals the show.
The architectural detailing seen here is what really makes this hallway striking, particularly the texture on the walls and the juxtaposition of the rich wood against the crisp white accents.
A touch of nature
Sticking to a theme helps to create an elegant entryway, as evidenced here with an antler-inspired ceiling light, organic touches such as the framed branches and potted plants, as well as the neutral colour palette.
Top it off
Wallpaper is a sophisticated design option, and it looks even more dramatic when applied to the top of the wall and even the ceiling, like in this entranceway. The large ceiling light is a great touch.
For the busy household
This family-friendly foyer is gorgeous for a number of reasons, from the chalkboard wall to the slate-grey floors to the modern ruffled ceiling light.
Warmth of the east
An entrance with a vivid Asian-inspired pattern, such as the cherry blossom wallpaper here, envelopes the room in warm inviting tones.
A hallway for a family looks stylish outfitted in warm cream colours and is much more personalised with numbered baskets so that each person knows where to store their things.
Reflecting on design
Reflective materials come together beautifully in an entryway, like oversized mirrors and clear furniture – it also helps the space appear larger and flows seamlessly with the rest of the house.
