When a bathroom and bedroom are in close proximity, the smallest touches can bring an easy domestic and aesthetic flow between them.

LLI Design with design director Linda Levene at the helm recently undertook the redesign of a four-level townhouse. As part of this, the owners wanted a master bathroom with wow factor.

"To achieve this, the second level was transformed from separate rooms into a master suite, with an open bathroom and freestanding bath.

"The bathroom sits easily next to the bedroom, with porcelain wall tiles complementing the Fornasetti ‘Clouds' wallpaper tonally."

Also in terms of colour, the new bathroom's patterned floor tiles act as a counterpoint to the pale wide plank flooring in the bedroom.


"As the suite is open to the bedroom it was important to bring a more bedroom-like feel into the bathroom. This link was achieved both by selecting floor tiles in the format of a rug pattern and the addition of two bronze mirrors over the vanity unit," says Levene. "An LED strip under the vanity, additional wall lights and in-floor uplights complete the soft, ambient look."

The diffuse lighting and open-plan design makes the bathroom appears bigger than it is.
