Stannum House boasts unbelievably detailed Rosette’s throughout the house. Each room contains a uniquely decorated Rosette, hand painted and restored to its original glory. Similar to every part of the house, the Rosette displayed has a story. The Rosette that you see picture is actually not supposed to be in its current room. It is meant to reside in a parlour room and the one that is in the parlour room (with the fruits and nuts) is supposed to be in a dining room. But John Reid, being a farmer’s boy, didn’t know the difference and he refused to listen to his advisors and was adamant that “the bigger one goes in the bigger room”.
