This room may just be a dream come true- and you can use it as inspiration for your own home! #colorlover #design

I have heard some arguments for not insulating wall cavities in older homes. They say focusing mainly on the attic, since heat rises, you can stop the more there. And in older homes with no vapor barrier, the concern is that moisture would condense in the newly insulated walls since by adding insulation, you have now changed the location of the dewpoint. Potenitially this creates mold issues in loose-fill insulators, and other complications. Anyone want to elaborate or comment on this? I have been wondering if anyone has heard of the track record of a slow-rise, closed-cell, spray-foam insulation in wall cavities? Which in theory should be less problematic as it’s closed-cell construction works as a vapor barrier (when applied properly)
