In the Mood
No shy, retiring hues here. the bath goes smoky, dark, and deep.
The primary bath in this 19th-century Arts and Crafts estate features deep-green onyx walls and opulent gold details and finishes by Drummonds. Taking center stage, the Usk tub is accessorized with the Mull bath and shower mixer, and finished in polished brass. The shower is also outfitted with fixtures from the Mull collection. The Double Lowther vanity completes the picture.
