Hallway to heaven

There’s nothing like walking into a passageway that has great space – it can be treated like any other room in terms of colour and decoration. This lovely lilac design is so big and bright, it’s practically a living space in its own right. Large windows let the light stream in, and with a high ceiling, the statement fittings look right at home. I love how the polished floors are softened by the use of a deep purple runner rug, helping to create a  wonderfully inviting space. These days, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to mixing different shades, so splash out on accessories – and let your hallway sing!
