Du Bois Design wins 2023 TIDA New Zealand Designer Bathroom of the Year

Congratulations to Natalie Du Bois of Du Bois Design – winner of the 2023 Trends International Design Awards New Zealand Designer Bathroom of the Year

Watch a slide show of this winning bathroom, with commentary from designer Natalie Du Bois

The existing bathroom in this space was too light and sparse for the owners, who wanted a guest bathroom with a more intimate and moody atmosphere.

Key to the design was to create a flow through the different functional spaces, with the considered selection of materials and fixtures with soft gradual curves.

A moody and textural material palette was specified, including dark burnished metal-look porcelain tiles, and a lighter grey, rock salt porcelain tile which flows from the hallway into the bathroom and up the back wall.

The vanity top is also a feature element, made in Bengal black stone with specially designed grooves that create a rock edge.

The freestanding bath has its own tumbled natural stone wall, with a long-recessed shelving niche behind the bath.

The TIDA judges felt the designer has overcome the inherent challenges this space presented, while its variety of textural surfaces, accent lighting and curvaceous fittings illustrate some of the major trends in New Zealand bathroom design.
