Hidden hallway meets modern living room

Here’s a hallway that’s so short you might miss it. It takes you from the front door to the comfy sofa in the living room area in a few steps. The look is mostly modern but with traditional-style panel door wardrobes. They help unite the two zones and add a lot of tidy storage.

A feature wall with wardrobes

A lot of times a feature wall means an eye-catching paint colour or wallpaper pattern. But here, it’s a panelled wall effect created by two wardrobes with panel doors. And they also give you organised storage for clothes and shoes and a calm look when the doors are closed.

      Less colour can make more impact

      The colour scheme is mostly beige and white but with a few carefully chosen items that add an accent colour. For example, the curtains and the bench with storage that‘s been painted a yellowish ochre to match them. The overall effect is a space that’s calm but has energy, too.

          Lamps for light and style

          Finding the right shoes or telling the difference between your dark blue scarf and your black one is a lot easier when you have enough light. The lamps you choose also contribute to the look – like these modern-style ones here. The light reflecting off the wardrobe doors adds extra cosiness, too.

            Brightening up the mood

            This lighting strip with its different colours that’s placed under the cabinets helps set the mood and adds more fun. How about white light to see if your shoes need shining, bright purple to kick-start the party feeling?
