Steal This Look: Schoolhouse-Style Bath by S. Russell Groves

January 5, 2010

One of our favorite projects of 2009 is the house of designers Russell Groves and Neal Beckstedt (partners in the NY firm S. Russell Groves) on Long Island, profiled by Audrey Templesman in the New York Times. Recreate the duo’s take on schoolhouse decor with the following elements.
