Curvaceous and textural, this bathroom takes a cue from an adjoining curved wall and runs with it – an introduced skylight adds light from above

From the designer:

As part of a full interior design of a new build in the established Sydney suburb of Hunters Hill, we have drawn inspiration from the architectural elements of the property.   

Working to enhance the rounds and curves, this contemporary bathroom is a playful nod to both colour and texture.

The design brief – two basins are imperative, privacy for the toilet, and privacy from the shower to enable the other spaces to be used simultaneously; plus, a balance of storage vs visual impact of volume of drawers/cupboards, and an overall contemporary feel.

On the initial architectural plans, we have removed a window from the bathroom that overlooked the street (to ease privacy concerns) and added a beautiful circular skylight to ensure an abundance of natural light.    

Adjoining the master suite, with its curved wall, the inner curve of the ensuite wall is highlighted with the vanity shape at its set-down space.  

The curves are then echoed in the end of the vanity, the shaped shaving cabinet, and lines of the bathtub; and the shower wall also echoes the curved edges.   

These curves add a softness to a space otherwise filled with hard surfaces.   

The walls that feature these curves have also been highlighted with the specific pill shaped ‘tic-tac’ tile – a basic white tile elevated and emphasised in shape by using a coloured grout.  

This feature tile also adds a texture and movement seen with the contrasting terrazzo.

A ’false’ wall was added to increase in depth and additional storage in the recessed shaving cabinets.  

This also allowed us to insert the curved frame around the louvered windows, echoing the circular sky light above.

 The Corian edge surround of the window trim allows for a practical place to rest toiletries but also frames the window, looking out onto the master suite balcony and treescape.

The double basins were chosen for their softened edges, the pink of the vanity complements the terrazzo tiles.

This ensuite also features under floor heating and specific lighting, including an under-vanity sensor light.    

Almost a separate room within the bathroom itself, the walk-in shower is hidden behind its curved wall allows for privacy if someone else needed to use the vanity space in the early morning rush.    

The bathroom feels very connected to nature – whether lying back in the bath enjoying the freshness of the trees and outdoor space or in the evenings bathing under the stars and beneath the moonlight/skylight.
