Keep your hallway floor clutterfree by suspending decorations from the ceiling. Retro-style honeycomb lanterns create dynamic focal points. ‘I love the way they start off as boring piles of paper and then unfold to become the most fantastic and intricate shapes,’ says Nicoline Falmer-nielsen, founder of Pipii. Try iridescent decorations, too. ‘They’re very effective at picking up the light, creating shimmering, cloud-like formations,’ says Talking Tables founder Clare Harris.
Project details In this cheerful hallway, traditional Edwardian detailing has been brought up to date through the use of aquatic wall paint shades. Hung from the ceiling and echoing the hues on the statement chandelier are a collection of large tissue paper honeycomb balls, £4.75 each, Pipii. The walls are painted in Arsenic and Cook’s Blue estate emulsions, both £45 for 2.5L, Farrow & Ball.
