Country Rock

From Adding a Bath Without Adding On, This Old House magazine, June 2006

Though this bath is built for a family, it's sexy. It's a little bit country, with blue walls—the color of hope, wainscoting and details like woven baskets seen through glass-fronted built-ins. And, with its exposed chrome plumbing, gooseneck faucets and black granite countertop, it's a little bit rock 'n' roll—or Weimar cabaret in its sharp vintage appeal. I imagine someone fastening her stockings to her garters and adjusting their seams by the light of the Deco overhead fixtures, her heels clicking across the hexagonal tile floor. And, beyond style, the built-in drawers and cabinets framing the dual sinks provide ingeniously unobtrusive storage space.
