Steal This Look: The Baths at High Road House in London

October 16, 2018

Here’s an all-time favorite Steal This Look from our archives: In the High Road House revamp in London, designer Alexander Waterworth tweaked Ilse Crawford’s standout 2006 design by introducing dark accents and a more muted color palette.

We especially like the en suite bedroom/baths, with traditional faucets, antique mirrors, and classic porcelain accessories installed against a Shaker-style paneled backdrop. Here are some key elements to replicate the look.
