If old walls could speak, what would they say? I’m always fascinated by interiors that keep decayed walls [or ceilings] as decor statements. In French, we have an expression that says “les murs ont des oreilles”, translated literally as “walls have ears.” Is there a similar say in English? I wonder.
If these walls could speak, they’d certainly have long stories to tell, tales from the past to share. In any case, they add instant charm and character to a renovated building, don’t you think?
Here are a few examples of interiors that embrace decayed walls, or old painted ceilings magnificently.
How about you? Would you keep a decayed wall [or old ceiling] as a decor statement if you were renovating an old home?
