First impressions are everything–so they say! Nowhere is this more true than in your home. Whether you have a modest corridor or a grand foyer, it’s important to make an entrance!

The hallway is your first opportunity to give your guests a flavour of your personality and what your home represents. There are plenty of ways you can decorate. With this type of room it’s often best to stick to light coloured walls to maximize space and exude warmth. However, there are plenty of other ways to decorate! Use lights, runners, floor tiling, side tables, art work, miscellaneous objects and foliage to create an entrance bursting with personality.

Lights and runners are the perfect ingredients for creating that welcome feeling. A runners’ silhouette alludes to a walkway, inviting guests into your home. Effective lighting works in a very similar way. Not only does it add warmth and appeal to a space, creative installations can become the central focus of a room and draw visitors in.

Making an impact isn’t all about big, bold and colourful. A room can be easily as impressive due to the lack of these components. Think muted palettes, ikat patterns, minimal furniture and raw materials.
