Spring cleaning’s on the horizon, so it’s as good a time as any to ensure your country hallway is the ultimate in practical as well as pretty!
Hallways are notorious for being dumping grounds, but you can easily transform your hall into a clutter-free zone by incorporating some well-chosen storage solutions.
This pretty entrance way, for instance, uses free wall and floor space for a classic country storage bench and wall shelf in fresh spring pastels.
The storage bench is super practical as well as beautiful (this bench is from The Dormy House and can be painted in different shades). Cupboard doors make it perfect for hiding away shoes, while a wicker basket is a neat solution for tidying away hats and gloves. And of course, the seat cushion makes it ultra comfy when sitting down to put on or pull off boots.
The wall mounted storage peg shelf (also from The Dormy House) is perfect for hanging baskets, keys, dog leads, and again, the wicker baskets can be used for knick knacks and are easy to slide in and out.
What we at Country Days particularly love about this scheme is that it’s also a masterclass in mixing classic country fabrics – florals, faded florals, ticking stripes and polka dots in toning shades work beautifully together.
