BESPOKE: DESIGNING WITH CONTEXTUAL DETAILS
As far as the bath goes, the decorator used more creative license but stayed with in the vernacular of a period home. Instead of the overly modern solid glass doors for the shower, paneled French doors with a durable enameled metal frame provides function and form at the same time. We like the black marble on the tub which is a nice accent but balancing it all off with subway tiles helps make the interior a little more accessible than lining everything with stone. Replica vintage cross handle fixtures are also a nice touch since they are the most accurate lavatory finishing one can find for a townhouse and much better than the severe single knob variety that somehow has found its way into so many moderate renovations.
