If you’re looking for modern, bold and eclectic hallway decorating ideas, you have come to the right place! On this page you’ll find five easy-to-implement ideas, perfect for spaces large and small.
But first – why go eclectic in the hallway?
The answer to that question is very simple: the hallway is the entrance to your home. It sets the tone for the rest of the house. Its a communal space that everybody can enjoy, so why not inject a little bit of fun and personality into the area?
Let’s not forget about practicality:
The hallway is also an area with a high footfall, used by all members of the household and, of course, visitors. This communal space has to serve many purposes: a place to set down keys, a place to put away shoes, an area to meet and greet guests, and so on.
While decorating your hallway, it’s important to remember that this is a multifunctional space. Although it should look great with tonnes of personality, it’s important the area ‘works’ for your family too.
1. Brighten up your hallway with a patchwork organiser
Create a patchwork organiser using bright, bold and patterned fabric scraps. The result is a colourful focal point for your hallway. This organiser is perfect for storing keys, letters, notepads, spare change and so on, leaving you with a clutter free entrance to your home … Get the DIY tutorial from IKEA.
2. Hang “look twice” artwork
This flamingo painting is so fun. It makes you look twice – it looks like a painting in an ornate frame, but upon closer inspection, it’s really an elaborate canvas! It’d make a great addition to your entrance hall.
3. Cheery ombre wallpaper
This yellow wallpaper will brighten up any hallway. (If you’re not a fan of the sunshine hue, a rainbow of other colours are available). For tips on styling ombre wallpaper, visit BrightBazaarBlog.com.
4. Show-stopping light pendant
Instantly transform your hallway by installing a show-stopping light pendant. Get the eclectic look by opting for a mismatched cluster of pendants, like these from Graham and Green.
5. Paint your hallway steps in bright colours
As soon as I saw this photograph, I was in love. Yes, the dog is cute, but I’m talking about those sorbet-coloured rainbow stairs! Just imagine the colour combinations you could play with. If rainbow isn’t your thing, paint your steps one vibrant colour instead, it’ll really lift the space.
