Bucket Brigade

This bath, fitted with more framed mirrors than I can count, reflects the fondness that its designer, William Monaghan, has for vernacular style. A native of New Orleans, he founded Build Now, a design/construction firm that specializes in traditional, Delta-influenced architecture, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In a most unwelcome coincidence, Hurricane Isaac has set upon the Big Easy seven years to the day of Katrina's arrival. So far, the levees have held up under a deluge that may total 20 inches of rain.
