Timeless Hallway & Cloakroom

This is stage two of a residential project in Carlisle. Click here to see to first stage of this project where we transformed the living room and dining room.

Before Images & Concept

The concept of this project is to transform the hallway keeping it bright, neutral and contemporary. The hallway should flow with the previously designed living room and dining room but can be slightly different in style and colour. The atmosphere created should be welcoming and relaxing, it should feel luxurious when you enter the home and be more of a statement. There are no windows in the hallway or on the landing so keeping it bright is important.

The downstairs toilet should also be transformed, but must not be anything cliché such as a seaside scheme with maps etc. There could be colour in here using wallpaper and tiles to create a statement. The toilet and sink should be replaced, there could be a new mirror, some art, possibly a shelf and ceiling light.


The hallway design has been kept neutral with pops of blue and green tying in with the previously completed living area. Panneling is going to be added along the bottom of all the walls, and up the stairs creating the luxury finish desired.

Neutral, contemporary, patterned wallpaper has been used on all the walls except for alongside the stairs where a statement dark grey paint has been used- this paint is also used on the actual stairs and to paint existing furnishings, pulling the colour through.

Hints of gold tie in with the previous interiors and add to the luxury, timeless finish.


The cloakroom design is a statement with contemporary, dark blue wallpaper around all of the walls.

This is softened with light blue tiles and white fittings.

Gold highlights again create the luxury, statement finish.

A wall hung vanity unit and toilet create the ultimate contemporary look.
