The article discusses the author's experience of visiting a friend's old country home and finding that sometimes there's beauty in letting the interiors remain unchanged. The author informs that there was nothing grand about the house, nor did it evoke a particular era. She thought it was just a lovely big old country home that encouraged a sense of calm. She told her friend that since it was not renovated since a long time, it was alive in its own character and was ageing beautifully.
