From Return of a Southern Beauty
, This Old House magazine, December 2003
This bathroom isn't large, but it has all the elegant essentials of a grand pre-war (that is, pre WWI) lavatory: Carrara marble countertops and floors, nickel-plated fixtures, glass shelving and stained oak woodwork for the mirror and door. To me, this combination of traditional materials and styling has the comfortable, historic feel of a club that Teddy Roosevelt and his Ivy-League Rough Riders might have belonged to. Only the shower stall gives away its true age.
