As we progress through our home build I am continuing to share the design details & the process I follow for each space in the hope it may inspire some ideas for your own decorating projects. This week is the upstairs family bathroom & powder room - if you have questions on any of the details dont hesitate to reply to this email, I am very happy to share!
Start any decorating project by collating images that inspire the way you want the space to feel, this becomes a style guide you can refer back to when choosing colours, finishes and decor items.
We wanted this space to feel light & family friendly, a simple, classic design that wont feel dated in 5 years time. My moodboard is full of images of bathrooms with creamy, light coloured tiles, simple but beautiful fittings & fixtures with wood elements for warmth & contrast.
COLOUR & FINISHES SCHEME..
Our stunning & simple, matt finish tile in a creamy sandstone colour was chosen first & was the basis behind all other elements in the space. We used this tile in 300 x 600 size on the floors & full height on the walls - with such a simple, neutral tile we needed to introduce some punch & contrast, so we went with a textured wood look laminate for cabinet doors (Polytec Ravine Maison Oak) and chose an interesting flecked white composite stone for the benchtop (supplied by our builder - try Caesarstone Nougat for similar)
Keep things simple in the bathroom with beautiful neutrals & you cannot go wrong!
Rocca Semi Recessed Basin - Reece - Our tapware designs are a square look so we stuck to a square shape for our sink.
Missoni 'Niles' Hand Towel - for a beautiful colour pop, can be changed up when you want a new look.
Planet Luxe Hand wash - Australian made, all natural & no nasties.
Kado Freestanding Bath - Reece - The simplicy of the tiles meant a freestanding bath could become the feature in this space.
Drum Stool (Persimmon Cushion) - arriving soon to Bowerhouse - ties in the wood element, brings some colour and a handy place to perch or place belongings (place a tray on top - add glass of bubbles, chocolate covered strawberries, a good book and you have heaven in your own home!)
Milli Towel Rail - Reece - plenty of towel drying space.
