Incorporate a soothing palette of beige, white and grey in your hallway to create a calming space to walk into. This gorgeous design by @sophiepeckettdesign uses texture to layer the entrance with sophistication. From the marble top counter to the softly patterned stair runner and bold panelling running up the stairs.

Wood texture and brown shades provide a sense of calm and relaxation when decorating your hallway. This country style hallway by @stef_durbin is put together charmingly. 

The cute wooden bench fluffed with cushions and the shaggy rug creates a statement look for a large hallway looking to double up and a pit stop before you leave your home.

Hallways that are not generous on space can still look great and inviting. If you’re brave and bold like @iamhayleystuart you can create a fun entrance way that is big on style by choosing your favourite colour from the rainbow to give your hallway new life. 

We love the gallery wall idea, which helps break up the colour too and adds personality to the hallway.

If you’re lucky to have a spacious entrance, a great tip to keep it looking inviting is by strategically placing furniture to maximise on the space you have. Whether that’s by incorporating plush seating like this gorgeous country style home by @deborahfitz_interiors_

This look is beautiful and airy with reflective decor to make the space feel extra airy. We especially love the assortment of flowers that adds colour and texture to the space.

Spruce up your bare walls with a flourish of fun artwork to make your entrance and stair pop with character. The great part of creating a gallery wall is that you can completely personalise it to exactly how you like and your own sense of style. It can be done really cheap too, by simply buying frames and mounting your favourite patterned gift wrapping.

We love how @mo.and.the.jungle mixes up the gallery wall up the stairs with travel, nature and typography as inspiration.

The small details make this entrance super cute too, like the ciao doormat and love heart reef.

Brighten up your hallway with bold prints, fun decor and colourful paints. @cloud_nine_interiors uses printed carpet to set the tone for a quirky hallway that combines unique furnishings to create a totally wonderful entrance. We love the gold and black dog lamp and metallic interiors that pop against the black decor. 

What’s more, the bold yellow door breaks up the dark tones beautifully for a modern vintage look.
