Dramatic Front Vestibule

Robert and Karen King rejuvenated one of the most architecturally interesting spaces of McLean House.

Key Elements
Black-Tie Palette The elegant black and white colour scheme looks fresh and formal . "That, plus mixing textures, showcased the proportioned oval dimensions of the room," Karen explains.

Dramatic Wallpaper A dark, oversize wallpaper adds a luxe feel to a small space.

Flooring The partially reclaimed granite floor was updated with a mosaic insert.
