Blue Traditional Entrance Hall

Create a welcoming, cosy entrance hall in traditional shades of warm blue and crimson. The light blue tone chosen here is fresh, bright and welcoming, and its red tones are complemented by the floor-length door curtain. A layer of thick fabric that can be pulled across the door once everyone is inside is practical as well as attractive, providing extra insulation in an area of the house that can often be draughty. The gilded mirror frame and polished marble tabletop provide bright glints that prevent the scheme from feeling too dark.
