A bathroom design with transatlantic texture
From London to New York – A simple little project that turned out to be a beaut with lots of ideas that we hope you find useful.
Our lovely clients wanted to use colour and texture but didn’t know how to pin down their ideas. In fact they had rather pinned themselves in circles on their own Pinterest board – an explosion of ideas that needed focus. And that’s where we came in.
The client had a great collection of mid-century and vintage Scandi pieces, which gave us an idea of their personal style and plants were everywhere so we knew they liked natural texture.
We wanted to add something new to this so we opted for industrial mixed metallics and a soft pale blue to give a calm backdrop, with the added layer of matt and gloss tiles, subtly used above and below the dado level taken from the hallway outside to tie the bathroom into the architecture of the house.
The ceramic floor tile is in the style of stripped original wooden parquet complimenting the industrial lighting.
The pale natural linen window dressing softens the look and gives that scandi touch with the addition of vintage pieces from Etsy, grounding the space and giving it soul.
Concept delivered = Happy clients and excited designers.
Then came the nitty gritty – the refit. Though small, this bathroom required the works, stripping it back and starting from scratch. We put in a new ceiling, had it re-plastered, the floors needed tanking to make the most of the tight floorplan with wet room layout. we added underfloor heating, new tiling, fixtures and fittings. so the budget was a stretch but we got there.
Experience has taught us to remain open to change whilst still firmly holding onto the heart of the project. If you remember the story you set out to tell, it makes the unexpected plot twists easier to handle and you learn that they are in fact what makes the story.
