The cast bronze, under-mount bathroom sink in the powder room vanity features a medium patina finish that deepens in color over time. The stylish sink includes an intricate Art Nouveau-inspired textured floral pattern that makes it feel like a piece of art.
The elegant curves of cove ceilings and turret windows, along with exquisite pillars and moldings, retain the authentic Victorian sophistication of this living space, while an Art Nouveau chandelier, wingback chairs, yin yang table and assorted eclectic accessories add a more modern bohemian look. Design by Lisa Bakemis.
Once the center of the American slave trade, Charleston is a city always contending with the good and bad of its history even as it has transformed into a food-centric and sophisticated Southern city where wealthy New Yorkers and Hollywood types flock for the easygoing pace and refined lifestyle and have scooped up homes at a ravenous pace that has threatened to price-out locals. Charleston is consistently named one of the country's top cities by glossy travel magazines and websites beguiled by its idiosyncratic beauty and charm. Homes, gardens and the people of Charleston are exceptionally gracious (especially so considering the 7 million tourists who flock to the city each year), furnishings lean toward the traditional but there is experimentation galore when it comes to the arts and food. There are endless options in high-end lodgings from the nouveau luxe Hotel Bennett to the bespoke, chic Zero George whose epic porches are the local answer to Prozac.
