All three spaces feature the same principal surfaces to create design harmony across the home. The herringbone floor is created from single wood tiles. These match the natural tones of the travertine walls and bookmatched Neolith sheet in the shower area. search | save | share at the sense of space in the master ensuite. The negative detail under the benchtop, combined with the floating shelf below the cabinet unit, gives the twin vanity a pulled-apart, modern aesthetic, accentuated by backlighting. The wood frame around the mirror-fronted wall cabinet over the vanity adds a homely feel. “In addition, the top extends beyond the cabinet, creating a makeup desk complete with an oval mirror and a pouf,” Armstrong says. “We chose red gold fittings where possible to play off the stone surfaces. However, where elements couldn’t be sourced in this finish we went with black detailing – as seen in the heated towel rails and operable shutters above the tub. “Another way we addressed detail harmony was by leaving out the hardware completely – the glass toilet cubicle door has a cut-out handle and the shower door is simply push to open.” The powder room – together with two other bathrooms in the home – has similar material treatments, including the travertine tile, book- matched Neolith sheet and herringbone floor. It also has a simpler version of the bathroom vanity, sans makeup space but with the same contemporary deconstructed appeal.
