Unabashed luxury and glamour abound in the ensuite bathroom of a Brisbane house designed by Greg Natale in the style of a modern palazzo. The dark palette requested by the owners is expressed with grey Jurassic marble walls and bath, black-stained oak vanities and grey wallpaper that underlines the opulent, textural feel. Norwegian Rose marble floor tiles inset with Jurassic marble add another layer of pattern and reference the warm red touches elsewhere. Brass finger tiles line a series of arches that link the bathroom, vanity area and main bedroom, providing luminosity against the dark backdrop and echoing the brass finishes throughout the home.
