Bathrooms are best when all prim and white. Or are they? The most private room in the home should be an expression of the owner’s personal taste, not just a tribute to conservative thinking.
This bathroom by award-winning designer Natalie Du Bois is an excellent case in point.
“The homeowner had a clear love of colour,” says Du Bois. “And to match this, her wardrobe was equally colourful. So it baffled me when she asked for a black and white bathroom.”
However, the owner soon came around to Du Bois’ suggestion of introducing bold colour into the design, a choice that was far more in tune with her fashion choices and personality.
“I suggested Resene Clover to bring natural warmth to the space and echo the greenery outside. Plus, I wanted the bathroom to have a bold, dramatic look, so I chose to keep all the painted areas, the shutters included, in the same colour.
“The two opposite walls and the ceiling became one form, with no boundaries.”
