Another bathroom in the house is fit for a princess. Wilson says the only instruction from the daughter of the house using this suite was to use the color pink. “We researched plumbing products and found a fuchsia pink mixer and faucet. We also discovered the new Laufen Mimo collection, offering a handbasin collar and toilet seat in a bubblegum pink shade.” The designer then created a dramatic pink-fronted vanity cabinet, which is cantilevered from the wall. “We positioned the vanity opposite the door so this would provide the most visual impact – it is the first thing you see when you enter,” he says. The vanity features pink, heart-embossed drawer fronts in a new Laminex product – 3D Forms & Illusions in the color Lovely. Further embellishment is provided by diamante-style handles that catch the light. “We introduced an unusual glossy white tile to the vanity wall for added pizzazz,” says Wilson. “The tile has a textural wave pattern that is highlighted by LED lighting around the vanity mirror. The designer says the pink elements can be changed out easily if required in the future. Facing page: Everything in this girl’s bathroom is either pink or white. The distinctive vanity features a white quartz top and pink heart-embossed drawer fronts with Diamante handles. Fuchsia pink metallic paint was used on the ceiling. The D-shaped bath is semi freestanding, with one side fixed to the wall for ease of cleaning.
