20 Eclectic Hallway Design Ideas

Our hallways are an often neglected space in the house. We reserve all our creativity and talents for our living rooms and bedrooms but when it comes to the hallway we are lost for ideas. But this shouldn’t be the case because the hallway is the first place where our guests set their foot and as we all know the first impression has always a lasting impact. It therefore becomes imperative that we do up the hallway in enticing patterns and styles such that they simply mesmerize anyone who passes through them.

1. Rustic style

Although the overall décor of this house has been designed in a rustic style there is a lot of eclectic mix and match going on. An ornate baroque mirror looks out from an exposed brick wall while metal chairs add a contemporary flair. The surprising element in this room is clearly the carpet in a pattern of colors which is so much out of place in a rustic setting yet seems to fit in so well with the overall décor.
