Project Entrance

Making an entrance. That’s what this small space, a.k.a the hallway, is all about.


The brief

The client recently moved into a newly built home and although the living area was coming along it was the hallway that was still bare and unwelcoming. They wanted a place that was functional, welcoming and fitting to the rest of the house.


Design Process

In several rounds the client was guided through:

+ A moodboard with clean elements in different color palettes.

+ Options for shoe and coat storage

+ Wall treatment options

+ 3D visualization of the narrow space

+ Additional accessories


Wall Treatment

For this space the wall treatment was very important. We even looked at eye-popping wallpapers and pink fresco paint, but opted for a cleaner and more durable look in the end. To match the rest of the house we ended up with the Setting Plaster paint by Farrow & Ball. It’s an interesting color that has elements of dusty pink and gray in it. It will add warmth to  the space without making it too (stereotypically) feminine.


Sophisticated Ikea hack

In a narrow hallway storage is crucial for all the shoes and coats. Sometimes the best option is a built-in, but here we ended up making an elegant shoe cabinet reminiscent of a vanity desk. The Ikea hack is a combination of an Ikea Besta unit with the fronts and legs by Superfront (love their designs and options!). See the different options I played around with in the images. The brass handles and legs finish off the cabinet, giving it a more exclusive feel.


Stay tuned for the pictures of the final result.
