These in turn are complemented by the deep-toned benchtops. Graphite-toned heated towel rails also feature. “Of course plenty of storage space is another kind of luxury,” says Giorgi. “And as well as the walk-through wardrobes and broad, deep vanity drawers, the two banks of mirror-fronted wall cabinets also contain a wealth of storage.” The upper cabinets include mood lighting, adjustable shelving and internal power points – so the ensuite is as functional as it is arresting. Last but not least, the master ensuite’s many natural surfaces are bathed in morning light thanks to the inclusion of two high clerestory windows. The two banks of mirrors opposite each other reflect the occupants on into infinity and similarly help optimise natural light play. see more images online: search 259276222 at Above: The toilet cubicle is tucked away to the left at the end of the dramatic bathroom. Two clerestory windows bring the warmth of the morning sun into the room. The floor-mount tub pourer complete with its wall-mounted mixer is another touch of contemporary functionality in a room otherwise offering a more classic air. see more by this developer: search giorgi at search | save | share at
