Room of the Week – Mirrored hallway
This weeks Room of the Week is an entrance hallway featuring a wall of mirrors. From the House to Home gallery it shows that you can easily achieve a stunning entrance to your home with some simple design elements.
The hallway is the first room of your home seen by visitors but is so often neglected when decorating and designing your interior. Just adding a few choice elements to the room will ensure it is welcoming to any guests and also every time you come home.
Although the trend has been for painted neutral walls recently, adding wallpaper to your hallway can create a softer, more welcoming look. If you only apply wallpaper to one wall you can be braver in your choice. The Nabucco paper below from Designers Guild would be a smart addition to any hallway.
A console table is an essential and very useful furniture choice for any hallway. The Montana console from Heals shown below would be a simple choice to provide storage without dominating the hallway. On a security point, just make sure there is enough distance between the table and your letterbox so thieving hands can’t reach through!
Using multiple framed mirrors as shown is a good way to add an interesting design feature that also helps to increase the natural light in the room. The mirrors used in this hallway are from Ikea and retail for around £30. The Molger mirror shown below would also work and you could easily paint the frame to build on the colour scheme of your hallway.
However you design your hallway remember to make it welcoming. Use a few simple cost-effective tricks and you will always be glad to return home!
