It was typical of this movement to bring ideas and motifs from the old country to America and recreate them.
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.
“That’s why I chose to pair the more modern Pop Round Under Counter Lavatories with classic Carrara marble,” explains Susan. “And I placed the Fitzgerald Freestanding Soaking Tub, with its clean lines, right under the more historic Palladian spiderweb window.”
Finally, a whimsical pop of green upholstery makes a bold graphic statement amongst the black-and -white Georgian floor and grisaille wallpaper.
“DXV gives me products that I can use for a classical design or a modern design. With clean lines and the ability to go brass, chrome, nickel – wherever I’m going, DXV is right there with me.”
