Autumn/Winter is almost certainly here in London.
We’ve had three new commissions in the past month for bathrooms. People are starting to think about preparing their homes for the new season, hunkering down and making their quiet spaces as warm and luxurious as can be.
While bathrooms are now considered to be beautiful spaces for relaxing, they have to be practical and hardworking. It’s a tricky balance. How to make the space look amazing while working within the practical constraints?
We want our bathrooms to look amazing so mix up storage with some fitted pieces (super practical) and freestanding items (vintage/antiques make things exciting).
I like to mix contemporary sanitaryware with classic accessories. It makes things more interesting. A few luxe pieces will move things up a level (spend on taps and baths). And introduce some pattern to give it some edge – floor tiles are our favourite.
London bathrooms tend to be constrained by space restrictions. We think this is no bad thing. In smaller spaces you can be bolder and braver. Exciting design has more impact.
So our inspiration is contemporary pieces mixed with classic styling, a punch of pattern, and a few luxe items, giving us a masculine and feminine look (which should please everyone in the house).
