Inspired Design are shortlisted for the Bathroom award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014

Winners from the International Interior Design & Architecture Awards 2013, Inspired Design, have been shortlisted again this year for the Bathroom award.

The project required three small rooms to be knocked into one large walk in dressing room with a large en-suite. This was all designed down to the smallest detail to accommodate the clients exact storage requirements.


Nicola O’Mara of Inspired Design had to design a space that was sympathetic to the client’s home and existing surroundings. Nicola sat down with the client and together drew up an exact list of storage requirements, from cufflinks and suitcases to sports wear and hidden drawers, everything was planned down to the smallest detail.


The walk in shower was the main focus of the bathroom, which should have plenty of useable space. The old stone mullion windows were to be a feature and contrast with the contemporary interior. Colour was to be bold and masculine comfortable and had to evoke a sense of sanctuary. This was created by using a mixture of textures; tactile timber, silk carpet, luxurious marble and fabric lined drawers. The standout aspect of the project is the strong contrast of light and dark and the cleverly lit interiors of the wardrobes.
