when not to decorate!

At the Curious House we specialise in celebrating and cherishing the old, the original, the historic and the reclaimed. Although there are some fantastic paints, papers and wall – coverings out there at the moment sometimes its more effective to strip back and reveal a historic piece. Interior design doesn’t have to be about finding colour schemes and adding new pieces, sometimes stripping a 100 year old door sympathetically can create a more beautiful effect than any paint can. Stairs do not have to be carpeted and poled, they can be left to reveal a historic tread and original paint. Here at the Curious House we mix and match – we used a new paint to frame an original staircase – sympathetically¬† framing and documenting a period feature.
