IN BLACK AND WHITE

The che­quer­board f loor­ing es­tab­lished the clas­sic look of this ro­man­tic bath­room de­signed by Tanja Bey­ers of Pro­furn Con­tracts. Its time­less style is en­hanced by a free­stand­ing bath and tra­di­tional taps, all from Sa­mano Ce­ram­ics. The clean lines of the con­tem­po­rary van­ity, made by Three Sixty De­signs, make an edgy con­trast to the gilded oval mir­rors.

COUN­TRY STRONG

For this French coun­try-style home, the own­ers chose a clean, sim­ple look with wooden f loors, a free­stand­ing bath and clas­sic fit­tings from Vic­to­rian Bath­rooms. Tongue-and-groove pan­elling hides the plumb­ing be­hind the pedestal basin and pri­vacy is pro­vided by prac­ti­cal shut­ters.

FRENCH LESSONS

In­te­rior de­signer Ni­co­lette Jonas of In­te­rior Con­cepts de­cided on a French look for this mas­ter bath­room which features a free­stand­ing bath from Vic­to­rian Bath­rooms and mar­ble tiles. In­stead of a sin­gle light fit­ting, she hung three iden­ti­cal crys­tal chan­de­liers over the bath and fit­ted them with black shades for a touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion. For con­trast she painted the wall be­low the dado rail deep blue.

VAN­ITY FAIR

For a tra­di­tional look you can’t go wrong with a toile de Jouy wall­pa­per. For this pow­der room, in­te­rior de­signer Lisa Wal­ters chose Lewis & Wood’s Royal Oak from St Leger & Viney, which shows off the pretty van­ity and gold-framed mir­ror.

NAT­U­RAL HAR­MONY

De­signed by Bruce Fyfe of Fyfe Boyce In­te­rior De­sign as a rest­ful re­treat, this Dur­ban bath­room was mir­rored ex­ten­sively to cre­ate the im­pres­sion of space. Com­ple­ment­ing the con­tem­po­rary bath is an oak f loat­ing van­ity. For a sense of lux­ury and com­fort, he in­cluded an up­hol­stered chair, a side ta­ble and hung art on the walls. The slid­ing Shoji screen can be closed for pri­vacy.

CLAS­SI­CAL EL­E­GANCE

This bath­room de­signed by Be­spoke Bath­rooms was in­spired by grand Eu­ro­pean ho­tels. Pro­vid­ing the per­fect back­drop for the free­stand­ing bath, cus­tom-cut mar­ble tiles were laid in a tra­di­tional herringbon­e pat­tern. To give the room a fur­nished look, the dou­ble van­ity was cus­tom made to re­sem­ble a piece of fur­ni­ture. Gold and crys­tal wall sconces add lux­ury. All the taps are from the Mon­treaux range from Axor.
