Supreme bathroom design runner-up
Natalie Du Bois Du Bois Design
In a home with three other bathrooms, this renovated space functions mainly as a powder room, with a shower for use on the odd occasion. A simple solid oak trestle table keeps things light and open and avoids the use of complex cabinetry. The challenge of creating a smooth, seamless finish with the addition of the fixtures and fittings to the split-face wall was overcome by waterblasting the rough areas where tapware and fixtures were being fitted to the stone.
The lighting is minimal, with task lighting in the ceiling and two mini LED spots that wash down the wall either side of the mirror, combining with recessed LEDs below the timber top to further emphasise the textural elements. Earth tones and a mix of natural and organic materials (including limestone, stone and timber) are key components that help to bring balance and structure to this relaxing spa-like space. •
