Charleston. This bathroom represents the Classic Movement in Charleston, 1890 to 1920, when things went from fussy and overdone to modern convenience. And that relates perfectly to what Susan did in this space, taking classical architectural elements from some of Charleston’s historic homes and pairing them with modern fixtures.

A mix of old and new. Yesterday and tomorrow.
