It gets you from one room to another but does it have to be blank? Nah. Our designers give their top tips on styling your hallway like a pro!
I think hallways are great opportunities for things like a gallery wall. If you don’t know how to create one, of course there are some great tips in Betsy’s book and I also like Emily Henderson’s blog about gallery walls.

I like to keep it simple. A bench, mirror, and hooks for your coat and keys.
