One of the most interesting elements of the staircase interior is the decorative painting of the arch of the second floor, made in the style of eclecticism, which needed to be restored. It could refer to the end of the 19th or the beginning of the 20th century, and, most likely, the name of some enterprise was decoratively displayed in this way. This work was done by the restorer Inese Ozolina (Inese Ozoliņa) together with the restorer Kristine Sirvinska (Kristīne Širvinska) under the guidance of the experienced restorer Gunita Cakare (Gunita Čakare).

It should be added that the equally luxurious decorative finishing of the arch was also present on the first floor of the building, but it was worse preserved, therefore, only the decorative painting of the arch of the second floor was exhibited.
