  • Traditional entrance with gothic-inspired door and marble floor

    Enhance fabulous Gothic architecture with richly patterned marble and elegant wood doors that have been painted in grey. The darker the shade of grey, the more moody and dramatic – perfect for period features. Create a sense of symmetry by arranging two neatly trimmed Bay Laurel trees on either side of the doors. A festive wreath completes the traditional look.
