Yesterday we featured the
latest residential design project from Workstead founders Robert Highsmith and Stefanie Brechbuehler in Charleston, South Carolina. The project, the restoration of a three-story Italianate Victorian row house, features a master bath with an impactful palette: super dark green, modern brass lighting, and traditional fixtures. Here’s a run-through of the sources that make up the look.
