We haven’t even completed on our new home yet, but I’m already starting to think about how I would like to style the new rooms in our home. Someone send help! I know it’s a rookie mistake, as nothing is certain when buying a new home until you sign on the dotted line, but as a self-confessed interiors addict, I just can’t help myself!
I thought I’d start small and think about how I would like to style the hallway, it’s quite a dark place as the front door lets in a minimal amount of light into the space, so I want to keep it fairly light and airy with a pale colour on the walls, light coloured flooring and a mirror to bounce any light around the room.
I just love the look of cast iron radiators in period properties, especially in brushed brass finishes. Over time I plan on incorporating them into all the rooms in the house to add a sense of rustic charm. The parquet flooring is also something I have been lusting after recently, which I think adds some texture to what would otherwise be a fairly basic room. If you invest in a good quality finish it provides a robust canvas for all those feet which will inevitably walk across it, and arguably most importantly, I also think it offers such an inviting entrance.
Let me know what’s your favourite item and if there are any other details you would add to your hallway.
