NZ House & Garden - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

The guest loo was once a util­i­tar­ian zone where you were lucky to find space for a sliver of soap. But glam pow­der rooms are a global trend and Auck­land in­te­rior de­signer Ja­son Bon­ham, whose com­pany de­signed the room above, says his clients are keen on be­spoke, state­ment pow­der rooms. How to do it well? Un­less you’re go­ing for a bi­jou look, you’ll want space and height, he says. Then, fo­cus on a sin­gle idea, maybe a stun­ning tile, and build your other tex­tures and colours around that to cre­ate a Hol­ly­wood-style sense of in­trigue. Pod­casts are where it’s at, with mas­sive growth in lis­ten­ers. From com­edy to crime, fem­i­nist talk to wine chat, it’s all there. Look­ing for decor in­spi­ra­tion? Try The Chaise Lounge or De­sign Mat­ters, or meet lo­cal pod­cast­ers on page 52.
