Room tour: Hall, Stairs & Landing

Inspiration and interior ideas for styling your hall, stairs and landing. Tour my home to see how I've styled my hall, stairs, landing.

I don't know about you, but the hall, stairs and landing of my home has always been a bit neglected. It's a dumping ground to junk mail, discarded shoes, and the husband's car keys, which, seeing as its anybody's first impression of my house, obviously isn't really ideal. So, after a recent revamp, I thought I'd share how I've styled one of the most difficult areas of my home.

The hallway is deceptively narrow, meaning its a tough area to style. This IKEA shoe cupboard is really slim, meaning it doesn't take up valuable inches in here, but stores a LOT of shoes - no more tripping over trainers for me! The other nice thing about it is its height - being taller than usual side tables makes a nice feature to create a display on - I've used these mirrors from Laura Ashley, which also works to bounce light around a dark space.

I've jazzed up the shoe cupboard with some hare handles, and spray-painted the rest gold to match.

This corner is a super-awkward shape, which I've always struggled to make use of - however this tray table was a great find. It fits into this space perfectly, and takes up much less space than a more bulky set of drawers, for example. I've also popped a basket covered in a blanket here too, to hide countless magazines!

Our home has super high ceilings, which is wonderful for creating a sense of space in rooms, however an absolute nightmare to style - particularly on the stairs. Again, a large mirror adds light to this area, and I've styled some large A3 prints to break up the white.

At the top of the stairs I've created a gallery wall of wedding pictures (you can read about how I created it and download a free printable template to create your own here). I've also popped up some of my favourite photos in polaroid style.

Finally I thought I'd share the view from my front door - we've covered our ugly radiator with a cover, which is again an excuse to create a pretty display! 

How have you styled your hall, stairs and landing?
