West Africa Design Inspiration Secrets

Whether you’re welcoming guests for the first time or coming home after a long day at work, a great hallway should be a gateway, separating the stresses of the outside world from the haven that is your home. So even it is a non-living space, don’t be tempted to relegate it to a dumping ground.

The secret of a great hallway is to make a statement, whilst keeping it simple and clean! Therefore great storage in hallways is the key. I have a beautiful vintage ‘Black Forest’ chest in my hallway, which houses all our everyday shoes (it is lined with rose scented lining paper, so it also acts as a source of scent). I display my West-African statues and have (always )fresh flowers in Merino or mid century glass vases underneath my hexagonal Art Deco mirror, which fits my 1930s house perfectly. This is just a glimpse, but it gives any visitor an idea of what is to come.  Article By Eva Sonaike
