Clapham Georgian Cottage
In the entrance hall we designed bespoke full-height storage cupboards with attractive panelling and integrated bench seat. We chose an earthy colour to match the natural limestone flooring, with printed cushions and aged Oushak rug lending to the warm, welcoming feel.

…or pop in a seatThis idea works for a seating nook, too. By going up and over, the designers at Lisette Voute Designs have managed to create masses of storage while still providing a spot to sit down.The cushioned perch is ideal for putting on shoes, and the hooks above can be used for hanging small items such as scarves and bags.Take a look at more hallway photos
1. Corral entryway clutterIf there’s one area in the home that’s hard to keep tidy, it’s the entry hall. That longed-for calm place of welcome can often become an obstacle course of shoes, bags and umbrellas. To conquer the clutter, think about installing cabinets to hide your outerwear from sight. Lisette Voûte Designs came up with this cabinet wall, which has plenty of space for all sorts of paraphernalia. At the centre, the team even put in a seat and hooks, which provide a handy perch and easy access to frequently used items.
