Recently, we came across a house tour of a highly renovated apartment in Madrid. It included one “before” picture that made our heart sink: OMG, we thought, look what they covered up!

It reminded us of other spaces we’ve seen where a bit of the history and structure was laid bare. Photographer Maria Robedlo celebrated this uncovered wall in her studio renovation.
Occasionally, she’d use it as a backdrop in a photograph….
The question: When to Leave Rough and Aged As is?
