Gorgeous & Graphic Front Hall

Update any space by painting out dark woodwork and replacing threadbare stair runners.

Hand-screened wallpaper in a monochromatic print makes a big statement in this front hallway. Painted woodwork instantly refreshes the room, while black stair treads and handrail play up the bold black-and-white colour scheme. A weathered bench and low-hung art create a focal point under the stairs, while mini hexagonal floor tiles add texture.
