NEW MOVES ON MONO­CHROME

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

Black ab­sorbs and white re­flects – unit­ing the two is one of the most ef­fec­tive ways to cre­ate a bath­room that punches above its weight. In pat­tern terms, the op­tions are vir­tu­ally end­less and can be as sim­ple as black and white tiles laid in a che­quered for­ma­tion. For a mas­cu­line, tai­lored space, look to smart stripes or hound­stooth re­peat pat­terns – Deco­rum est has some ex­quis­ite mono­chrome mo­saics in semi-pre­cious stone. Mono­chrome needn’t be moody. Bal­anc­ing the black-to-white ra­tios in favour of the lat­ter will cre­ate a far lighter, brighter space. A more or­ganic, softer ap­proach can be achieved us­ing ir­reg­u­lar, curved pat­terns such as mono­chrome patch­works and flo­ral de­signs.

Project de­tails The Crit­tall-in­spired in­te­ri­ors trend has hit the bath­room. This is the Met­al­craft Frame shower screen in Matte Black, from £2,000, at Ma­jes­tic Show­ers. Pem­broke mar­ble floor tiles from the Silk Road Col­lec­tion by Sara Bald­win for New Ravenna Mo­saics start at £1,096 per sq m, at Paris Ceram­ics.

Project de­tails Mono­chrome tile ris­ers draw the eye into this small, pure white bath­room, adding a sense of space. The floor tiles are Ke­rion’s Dé­cor Branche Mer from its Neocim Col­lec­tion. In the UK, try Abbey Decor porce­lain tiles, £32.64 per sq m, at Porce­lain Su­per­store.
