FOLLOW-UP OF WORK. In order to avoid unnecessary problems, think in advance the sequence of work on decorating and decorating the premises and follow it. Otherwise, it may happen that the wall, already pasted with wallpaper, will have to be ditched. BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT MAY IMPROVE LIFE. Surrounded by aesthetic and functional items matched with the soul, the mood will be better than without them. As the saying goes, "houses and walls warm." In a beautiful and comfortable house - they warm doubly. THE CONTENT OF THE DECOR IS AT LEAST IMPORTANT THAN ITS FORM. In order to choose a decor that fits harmoniously into the interior, a good decorator should know how and what it is made of. After all, the content is invariably reflected in the form. For example, putting a flower pot on the window from material that is not resistant to fading, after a couple of months you can find it has lost its original color.
The building is constructed in ashlar stone with a slate roof in an “exuberant free style” of architecture. It has a combination of two and three storeys, with attics and cellar. There are ten bays along Hope Street and three along Hardman Street. Its external features include a variety of windows, most with mullions, and some with elaborate architraves, a two-storey oriel window at the junction of the streets, stepped gables, turrets with ogee domes, a balustraded parapet above the second storey, a serpentine balcony (also balustraded) above the main entrance in Hope Street, and a low relief sculpture of musicians and musical instruments. The main entrance contains metal gates in Art Nouveau style, their design being attributed to H. Bloomfield Bare.
