I prefer a few and simple details in the hallway. Right now I have a large plant, a little pottery and a small marble tray for the keys. The mirror makes the long and narrow hallway feels bigger and the brown marble lamp gives the perfect light. I also like to have some personal stuff, like a purse, a coat or a pair of shoes. Together with the plant, it gives a warm and personal feeling to the room.
With just a few details, it’s also easier to keep it clean and it’s a big advantage. With small kids in the house it’s hard to keep it clean everywhere, but I try to keep it clean in the hall since it’s the first room people see. And you know what they say about the first impression.
All the best,
