Stained Glass Vestibule

Create a formal-meets-fun welcome area.

This room is decked out in offbeat Forbidden Fruit wallpaper (by Piero Fornasetti for Cole & Son) for a look that's playful but also feels old world. Its theme echoes the Art Nouveau stained glass on the interior doors. An "industrial revolution-style" hall tree adds function; it's topped with bamboo hat holders. Black-lacquered doors and marble flooring add polish and formality.
