One of the things I love most about owning an older home is having a hallway. Granted, it’s not spectacular like in a country home (but that’s ok too because I don’t have a butler to answer the door). But it’s welcoming and more than just a dumping ground for coats and boots and for me it’s such an important area of the home. There’s still so much to do (that laminate has got to go) but for now it’s looking prettier with a beautiful new mat from Artsy Doormats.
Now, before I go any further, they did kindly send me a mat free of charge. But they didn’t ask me or expect me to feature it on the blog. I chose the Tree of Life doormat in grey and love it so much that here it is anyway. There is the most amazing selection to choose from at their website, and all are hand-sprayed in the UK using durable paint to give long-lasting effect. Plus, the mat itself is made from natural coconut husk so all natural fibres, finished with a non-slip backing and suitable for indoor or sheltered outdoor use.
Arsty Doormats also offer a full personalisation service so if you wanted to customise the mats either for personal or business use that can be accommodated. On reflection, I should have gone for ‘A Naughty Dog and A Lazy Cat Live Here’. Very appropriate. I love that they have a specific grey section (because despite what the interiors trends say, I still love grey and it’s not going anywhere for me) plus a unique and unusual circular selection. Definitely something for everyone, especially if you love text print.
So there we go, sometimes it can be the smallest changes that give a space a whole new look. I love working with small, independent businesses and know how hard it can be to really make a success – if you do ever need a new doormat please do think of Artsy Doormats as a place to look.
Thank you so much to Artsy Doormats for sending me a doormat of my choice. And thank you for supporting the brands which make my blog possible.

I really like your doormat. Who knew they could be elegant? Our hallway is on our agenda for a revamp and a lovely new mat would be just the ticket to finish it off! #homeetc
I love how little touches – like a new doormat – can make all the difference to a space. Good luck with the revamp X
Love the doormat – we don’t have a hall here sadly – the porch is our smallest room and the whole floor is “carpeted” in doormat – it seemed the easiest way! #homeetc
Oh yes, I think those carpeted doormats are very practical especially in a smaller space. One day I’d love to tile the floor so fingers crossed we’ll get there eventually X
I have to say that doormat is really cute 🙂 And I like how you styled this space too, especially those plants 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂 The plants don’t actually live there all the time but now I put them there for the picture I think I might need some more! X
Love this Lins — what a pretty doormat! We have an older property, but we don’t have a hallway as such. We have a 2 ft.² vestibule!! One day I will have my amazing hallway in a grand country house; so big I’ll be able to rollerskate round it.
I just got a lovely doormat with stars all over it, to sit by the back door (to feed my store obsession even further!). Thank you so much for being such brilliant co-host on #HomeEtc
That sounds like a wonderful dream home, I keep wondering if I can ever tear myself away from London to move to a similar country pad, perhaps one day Xx
