“I love to have a clean, white base and then layer on lots of colours,” says Katie McNa­mara. The de­signer and her hus­band moved from Aus­tralia to a life­style block on the out­skirts of Christchurch to build their dream home. The bath­rooms were one area of the new-build that ex­ceeded their bud­get, but Katie does not re­gret the de­ci­sion to splurge on qual­ity prod­ucts and tile each room floor to ceil­ing. She used a range of shapes to add in­ter­est to the rooms. “In the bath­rooms there were lots of square edges. I soft­ened that ef­fect with round mir­rors and curved bowls in the en­suite and a curved, free­stand­ing bath in the bath­room.” FACT FILE En­suite (top left): Tiles from Bel­laRoc.
