Balancing act 21
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.
