Festive Hallway Decorating Ideas

From cool and minimal to bold and ostentatious, these clever ideas will make the right first impression this Christmas

Hallways and staircases lend themselves perfectly to festive decorating, as these gorgeous spaces below demonstrate. From wow-factor wreaths and traditional baubles to wild foliage, fancy feathers and trails of fairy lights, there’s no shortage of festive hallway decorating ideas.

Why not think beyond traditional decorations and welcome guests with a colourful light installation? Or light the way with curtain lights trailing down the banister to create a wall of twinkling lights. Go for versatile gold for plenty of pizazz, go wild with foliage for a more natural look, or add drama with feathers.

Wreaths and baubles offer a more traditional take; usually hung on front doors and in windows, a festive wreath can be just as effective elsewhere in the home. Whether hung individually or clustered together to form a display, heavily embellished or strikingly plain, indoor wreaths are a simple nod to traditional Christmas decorating, but with a modern twist.

Or Keep your hallway floor clutter-free by suspending decorations from the ceiling.

Prefer the paired-back, Scandinavian winter look? For a clean look, use just a small spray of greenery across the mantelpiece, or a single branch in a vase. After all, sometimes less is more.
