Well, well, well, this is quite the scheme to make all the other houses on your street green with envy! Don’t be fooled by the clean lines as although this hallway appears to be simply decorated it's actually a very well-considered space. When layering one shade on top of another from within the same colour family, in this case green on green, it's important to pick an accent shade that differs in tone from the other. This entryway is a fine example of how to execute this approach in a real life scheme as the rustic weathered tolix chair is not only a juxstaposition to the high gloss clean lines seen in the rest of the space, but is also a key element for bringing visual depth to the narrow space. This is achieved by placing the darker green chair in front of the brighter and lighter wallpaper. I'd certainly be happy to see this each time I walked through my front door, especially with that adorable tennis racket wallpaper! What do you like about this entryway?

OK, folks, here’s a fun task to make Tuesday a little more bearable for you! Which of these two striped hallways do you like best? Do you opt for the olive green and dusty mauve wide split stripe design or the classic blue and white combination of the nautically themed second space? Whilst I like how both spaces have echoed their colours and stripe patterns in the runner rugs, I think the effect is more suited to the second space. That said, in the first space the bold azure blue within the artwork really lifts what are fairly muted colours, adding a dash of quirk to the scheme. However, on balance I’m just airing a little more on the side of the second hallway. I love the combination of red, white and blue and think the untreated exposed stairs adds just enough ‘grit’ to an otherwise safe and gentle scheme. Which takes your vote?

For me, not much can beat that feeling of walking through the front door after one of those days. We’ve all had them, when you just can’t wait to get home. Whatever it is you love about your hallway – the smell, the colour, the pile of fabulous shoes…(!) – I can bet there’s one thing from these stunning hallways you would like to add to your own. I’d like to add a little Tam Tam stool (5) to the base of my staircase, and I think the burnt orange (8) entrance hall makes for a great statement space.
