When their property experienced residual damage from a neighbouring fire, our young, dynamic client took the opportunity to redesign their family entertaining spaces, including the lower ground floor library and media room, master bedroom and all the luxury guest bathrooms within their home. With a love of natural materials and an inclination towards a modern, industrial style, our brief for the design of the bathrooms specified a welcoming space with a focus on luxurious textures and refined finishes. Using natural stone, textured finishes and industrial style light fixtures, we were delighted at the opportunity to transform each bathroom into a cool, contemporary space that radiates elegance, warmth and character.
All savvy bathroom designs start with a key focal point and in the design of both the master bathroom and guest bathroom, we combined a striking bespoke vanity with dramatic light fixtures and lavish textures, including bespoke natural stone. This delivers a statement bathroom that showcases a timeless, contemporary, industrial-luxe style.
The guest bathroom features silver honed travertine flooring and oak graphite doors with a natural oil wood finish. The vanity doors have a textured surface by Xylo Cleaf while the counter top and bespoke basin are in Pietra d’Avola, a rich chocolatey limestone. The tubular light fixtures in matt black complement the pull bar vanity door handles in solid metal and heated towel rail in gun metal with a bronze finish. The sink faucet in matt black adds a sleek, modern touch. The silver travertine shower flooring has been lightly sand blasted and oiled while a crittal-style shower screen in matt black frames the space elegantly. A walnut bench is both functional and adds a further element of warmth to the interior scheme.
In the master bathroom, the walls are covered in Amaya limestone with a velvet finish and the bespoke vanity in a textured wood with a matt finish. The luxury vanity counter top and bespoke basin feature silver honed travertine. The vanity mirror with sleek steel frames sits in striking architectural proportion to the suspended, tubular light fixtures in brushed brass that complete the contemporary look of this timeless, industrial-luxe bathroom.
In the shower of this cool, contemporary bathroom, a bespoke waney edged oak bench has been fitted on powder coated metal brackets and perfectly complements the Brooklyn thermostatic shower set and wall mounted volume control in aged brass (The Watermark Collection).
Form and function merge in this well-designed and liveable family home to realise a stylish and versatile interior space with the contemporary design of the bathrooms a particular triumph, where a focus on rich textures and sophisticated finishes take centre stage to display a prevailing appreciation of style and natural stone beauty. We relished the opportunity of bringing warmth and cosiness to what is often a traditionally hard, neutral space and welcomed our client’s wonderful appreciation of luxury aesthetics.
