This over­sized up­stairs bath­room was cre­ated with re­lax­ation in mind. In­spired by mod­ern Ba­li­nese re­sort bath­rooms and the clas­sic weath­er­boards of Queens­lan­der homes, Kobi and Ge­or­gia set out to de­sign a sanc­tu­ary.

The win­dows are set high so no cov­er­ings are needed and views of the sky and tree can be en­joyed through­out the day. Shelv­ing is in­set for low main­te­nance – and to keep the space free of hang­ing shower cad­dies. Although it’s open plan, Kobi hid the toi­let be­hind a nib wall be­side the dou­ble shower, as “the last thing you want to see while show­er­ing is the toi­let!” By keep­ing the room white with light-grey tile floor­ing and de­tails, the space has be­come all about na­ture, with its warm wood tones and those views through the win­dows. “I love the win­dows, espe­cially when the tree out­side is flow­er­ing, so you just see the tree and sky­line,” Kobi says. And while in­set shelv­ing is a fea­ture of the bath­room, the set at left is espe­cially savvy. Kobi can take out the tim­ber shelves and re­move the rear of the shelv­ing to ac­cess the wall cav­ity should ex­tra elec­tric ca­bling be re­quired or the fire­place flue need check­ing.

Pretty prac­ti­cal The open shelv­ing pro­vides stor­age and dis­plays bathing es­sen­tials.
