Bal­anc­ing act 21

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

The start­ing point for this serene Syd­ney bath­room was an un­usual one: the Art Nou­veaustyle aged-brass tap­ware and towel rack. It melded the home­own­ers’ re­spec­tive de­sires for, on the one hand, tra­di­tional de­tail­ing and a soft colour pal­ette and, on the other, an in­dus­trial edge. De­signer Alexan­dra Dono­hoe Church dressed the room with mas­cu­line join­ery and floor tiles bal­anced with touches of fem­i­nin­ity in the glo­ri­ous mother-of-pearl mo­saics and pink suede stool. The curves of the bath, van­ity and mir­ror and the use of mar­ble are per­fec­tion. “I love how lux­u­ri­ous and tex­tu­ral the room is,” says happy owner Lu­cie.
