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.
