Chic - Collection Two - 2017 Trends
Classic, timeless, serene. Perfect words to describe this bathroom from The Block NZ: Villa Wars. With a focus on luxury, the designers have opted for an elegant touch on all features – chrome finishings on tapware and handles, moody stone tiles and the stand out bath.
Practical and luxurious, the generous shower sits conveniently in the corner. Having a wall recess in the shower is a handy nook for amenities while the glass doors keep the area open and the aesthetics visible.
The sizable 1200mm St Michel City wall hung vanity provides lots of storage space and a large vanity top for the user. Perched on top is the simple yet spacious Ideal Standard Round basin and Milano extended Basin Mixer in chrome. The added height of the mixer turns what is usually a basic element of the bathroom into a glamourous aspect while the chrome factor is timeless. The St Michel Dante Plus 3 door Mirror Cabinet adds further storage space and reflects both the dark grey stone of the tiles and the fresh textured white of the feature wall. A plain wall is transformed into a focal point with patterned tiles and varying textures adding interest. The tiles don’t quite extend to the top of the ceiling as the white of the ceiling flows down creating the illusion of more space in quite a narrow room.
Living walls were a highlight in 2016 and the living wall in this bathroom is no exception, being quite literally, a breath of fresh air. It livens and lightens the room, contrasting against the grey tiles. The raw timber shelves add a scandinavian touch.
And the highlight of the room – the standalone Adesso Edge freestanding bath. A luxury in any bathroom, this bath completes the symmetry and balance of the room, demonstrating that it’s not just what you put in your bathroom, it’s how and where you place it that also counts. It’s so valuable to think about the layout of the room – be visual and be creative.
