Sensory discovery – one of the most important characteristics of House of Grey’s Circular Salutogenic Design – begins from the floor up. A tactile Armadillo x House of Grey rug crafted from natural materials such as raw jute, wool or silk in each room creates a sensory experience underfoot and a textural foundation to build upon. Hues from House of Grey’s natural paint collaboration with Bauwerk on the walls and ceiling complete the blank canvas; a lime-based paint free of toxins made using a variety of bases including clay, stone, chalk, earth, slate and limestone.
