Instead of fighting the architecture, just go with the flow.
We are coming to the end of DD2’s master bath remodel and facing a slight dilemma of how to hang the mirrors. The wainscot is on the wall where the mirrors must go. In order to hang the mirrors the correct height, we (meaning Mr. Shops) must account for the trim. I like that the owners of this home [above], with help from designer Antonio Martins, were able to throw caution to the wind – tossing aside the “rules” – and doing not only what was best for their space, but to make the bathroom useful. With the wainscot and an ornately trimmed window to conquer, Martins simply hung the mirror from the ceiling with chains. Underneath is a vessel sink and high arc faucet mounted on an vintage side table. Used only as decoration, the antique carriage lanterns are a delightful touch. Shelves hold seldom used items and old family photographs. Kudos for remodeling an 1891 Victorian and keeping its charm.
