The hallway is one of those mostly neglected areas of the house, but considering it’s the first thing you seen when walking through the door, we should be paying it a lot more attention. I’ve had some plans in mind for mine for quite a while, but lack of time has meant that the fraying, stained wallpaper still remains, along with the plucked brown carpet that goes all the way up onto the landing. Despite being a relatively small space, it’d still take a good few days to complete, so I thought I’d talk through my plans to try and give me a good kick up the bum and implement them!
The wallpaper is the most daunting task, as it goes all the way up the hall, to the stairs and onto the landing, so it’d take a looooong time to strip it all and get something else up. Instead I’ve bought primer and grey paint, so I’ll be fixing up the wallpaper and painting it a nice medium grey shade. I’d love to add some pops of gold in the West Elm mirror and Oliver Bonas frames.
My hallway has a really small amount of space, so this console table from Quercus Living would be amazing there. The oak material looks lovely and looks really well made, and it actually has a bit of a retro 1950s vibe going on, which would fit in so well with the rest of my furniture. It’s a good size for some storage too, with a handy little shelf at the bottom which I could pop some shoes on instead of them littering the floor. Where I can I always like to support smaller brands, and Quercus are actually from Lancashire (like me!), so I think I’ll be saving up and trying to buy this.
Other than that, I love these Made.com hooks and this cute little West Elm doormat. Of course, every space needs a plant too, although the lack of space means I’d probably be best off with this artificial one from IKEA.
What do you think of my plans?
