For just £87, Hannah has transformed her dingy hallway into a color block dream.

“My husband and I don’t believe in taking life too seriously and our apartment reflects that,” Hannah said, speaking to Leader Doors to explain exactly how she did it.

“I love playing with unusual color combinations inspired by the world around me, like the bustling beach huts in Brighton where we met or the street art around Leith where we now live.

“I’m always looking for fun ways to transform spaces on a tight budget.”

With just £87 – spending £77 on paint and £10 on filler – the couple have totally transformed their hallway.

“I love the lilac alcove, that’s where I think the color combo really shines,” she explained.

Speaking about transforming something on a budget, Hannah pointed out that “preparation is key, especially if you’re transforming something with paint like us, you’ll always need to sand more than you think. .”

She continued, “The good thing about just using paint to update a space is that you don’t really have to add anything, we just made the most of it. who was already there.

“The only thing I added was a perforated mirror that I made with yarn from my stash and a cheap mirror from Amazon.”

And as far as prep goes, Hannah did all the work herself.

“Before we started, the walls were covered in mint wood chips, so we started by stripping which was not an easy process.

“Once this was completed we inspected the walls and decided to use a filler to smooth them rather than pay to recreate as we were on a budget.

“We then got to work ripping up the old carpet that was there, removing the handles and nails from the carpet, filling all the holes with wood putty, before sanding down every wooden surface and the handrail several times.”

To recreate the look, she suggested, “Pick two cool colors that often aren’t in combination with each other (mint and lilac or pink and yellow) and paint.”

“Our interiors are a lot of trial and error, we try everything and are not afraid to make mistakes.

“If you can get rid of the fear and just try things out, you can land some really nice spaces.”
