Lately I’ve had stairs on my mind. Well, not just stairs but entrance hallways in general. The reason for this is while we’ve lavished attention on most of the rooms since we’ve moved in, the rather narrow hallway in our Edwardian home remains the most sadly neglected space of them all. Which is a shame really because that’s a guest’s first impression. And everyone knows what they say about first impressions.
So when I come home in the evenings to a hallway that remains in a sorry state, I’ve been filling my Pinterest boards with inspiration on what other people have done with their own entries. And making a statement as soon as you walk through the door just makes a person want to see the rest of the home and stay awhile, right?
I thought I’d share three of my favourite ideas for creating an entrance that really makes a statement so if you are struggling with your own neglected space like I am, you might find some great inspiration too.
So while I look upon all the images that I’ve gathered, I’m still no closer to a decision although I’m incredibly inspired. The hallway is rather narrow so there’s not a lot of room for accessories but making a statement via stairs, wallpaper and artwork are all things I’m considering.
Which direction would you go – stairs, wallpaper or art? What’s in your hallway?
