The client liked the idea of re-creating a ski lodge feel or a Bali spa. He liked dark dramatic spaces, but needed it to be practical, as it was the only bathroom in the property, so needed it to function well, making the most of the space, despite its awkward shape with cut-off corner, and stepped back section.
The Samuel Heath Country Bronze brassware, really sets off this bathroom, against the dark textured wood effect porcelain tiles, and pebble mosaics. If chrome had been used, it would have killed the calm and complimentary tones.
By introducing the granite washbowl, solid teak unit, and pebble mosaics, I was able to combine many textures and tone, and even better, were all natural products, plus they were all either waterproof or durable, perfect for a bathroom.
The use of pebbles within the shower and bath area was to create a feeling of being in the natural outdoors whilst showering. Once that bathroom door is shut and the rain shower head is on, you are transformed to another world, and the stress of the day in the busy capital city, are washed away.
