A palette straight from na­ture brings style to a busy fam­ily bath­room.

“We’re shy­ing away from stark white and are start­ing to in­tro­duce colours — soft greys and warm neu­trals — into our clients’ con­cepts,” says in­te­rior de­signer Terri Shan­non of Bloom In­te­rior De­sign and Dec­o­ra­tion, who lent her tal­ents to this two-bed­room, Fed­er­a­tion-style home in Mel­bourne’s south west. With its large for­mat, stone-look ce­ramic floor tiles and bath sur­round, and creamy white wall tiles, this fam­ily bath­room is a case in point. “The bath is un­der­slung into the tiles, which gives the ef­fect it’s sit­ting be­neath the tiles,” says Terri. “The idea is sim­i­lar to that of a pool.” Bring­ing the floor tiles up the wall helps to an­chor the bath and make it the key fea­ture in the room. The per­fect fin­ish­ing touch?
