Because the client opted to locate the master bedroom on the parlor floor, special care was given to the delineation of the space as private quarters. The vestibule library, with its extensive built-ins, serves as a threshold to the master suite.

This space is really more of a vestibule between two rooms. It is approximately 5' x 8'.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Note that these shelves have artwork lights above them and baseboards at the bottom that coordinate with the rest of the room. This lends a uniform feeling.
