This is Carolina Peuriot Bouché, of the architecture and interior design studio Prágmata that was responsible for giving it a soul between a New York loft and a Creole ranch.
"Those are actually the original stone stairs in that house. They'd been painted over, so I had them stripped. I even had that railing stripped too. You should always think about stripping things down to find out what the original material is. A lot of the time it'll be something that really gives the room a sense of patina and age."
