A Suburban Sanctuary

This residential bathroom could easily be mistaken for a resort: a suburban sanctuary where colour speaks volumes and no detail is overlooked. The bathroom sits inside a stunning federation abode set in a heritage garden suburb of Newcastle. The design takes on a theatrical design concept that effortlessly pays respect to the vintage features of the home while creating an elegant and contemporary space for the client.

A serene colour palette with shades of Dulux Bruin Spice and Nood Co peach concrete adds warmth to a south-facing bathroom, complemented by dramatic white floor-to-ceiling shower curtains. Finishes of handmade clay herringbone tiles, raw rendered walls and marbled surfaces adds texture to the bathroom renovation.

Colour was the leading design element of this bathroom design, ensuring a move away from trends of white and neutral. Dulux Bruin Spice and hues of peach are sophisticated and feminine while creating a tranquil, calm and rejuvenating haven for this on-the-go client. Tones of peach are known to have energetic healing properties and put people at ease, the perfect colour for this city escape. It’s time to soak, unwind and restore your brilliance in a true sensory experience.

The Residence

The task for this beautiful Hamilton East federation home was to create light-infused and timelessly sophisticated spaces for my client. This is proof in the success of choosing the right colour scheme, the use of mirrors and light-toned furniture, and allowing the beautiful features of the house to speak for themselves. Who doesn’t love the chandelier, ornate ceilings and picture rails?!
