What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add impact with colourJewel tones are always a success when it comes to feature walls. They have a depth of tone and, even in the darker range of colours, often have a surprising luminosity that will add impact to an entrance. Detailed artworks placed on an adjacent wall will balance the energy of the feature, especially when framed with natural materials.
Console yourselfPick an update of the traditional hallway console for a strong look. This reflective slimline unit on trestles works as a place to display glassware rather than as a workaday piece of furniture, and makes a strong decorative statement.
Use in incidental spacesUsing strong, bright shades throughout a home can look overpowering, but many of us enjoy a splash of bold colour and would like to treat our walls to some super bright paint. But where to use it? Try painting the wall in a hallway or corridor. It’s a space that benefits from some impact — these parts of a house are often overlooked — but you never linger here, so will not have to live with the shade for hours at a time.

Here, a white hallway has been given a crisp, colourful makeover with a single wall of vibrant jade green. Explore ways to update your hallway
