The underwhelming all-white is all-right mantra is sent running for the hills in the various colourful, patterned bathrooms in this home

Designed by Box – The Architect Builder

From the home builder:

In this home, bathrooms included, the architectural framework laid the foundations for a sense of light and spaciousness – while, in this case, it’s the owner who has added the magic. 

The choice of decorative detail strikes a balance between stylish and family friendly – another interior characteristic extended to the bathrooms

There are few neutral-toned surfaces in the wider home – the use of pattern and colour is a refreshing break from the all-white is all-right mantra.

In fact, the owner's love of colour has been woven through the interior finishes – she working with the in-house interior designers, who brought her ideas into being – and into line.

“They were helpful in directing me, putting my ideas into an actual plan that would work and throwing out others that didn’t fit,” she says.

Wallpaper brings a touch of playfulness to the interior, including pineapples in the powder room and blue whale wallpaper in the upstairs bathroom.

Another must-have was a textural terrazzo-look tile that she spotted early in the project and wanted to use extensively. 

The upstairs bathrooms benefit from this playful material, with the terrazzo incorporating flecks of blue in the children's’ bathroom and orange tones in the ensuite.
