The walls in this bathroom by Rebecca Banks are painted in Resene Jaguar a dramatic inky tone.

A sense of adventure often spells the difference between a staid, predictable design and one that really stands out.

This new bathroom, designed by Rebecca Banks of Stewart Scott Cabinetry, reflects an unexpected, yet sophisticated approach to bathroom design.

The clients wanted a large, masculine vanity that would complement the era of the home, but offer modern functionality. The solution was a white laminate vanity with exposed birch ply edge.

To create a sense of drama, the vanity, fixtures and wall tiles were contrasted with a dark paint. Resene Jaguar a bold inky tone features on the walls.

"Resene Jaguar creates the perfect backdrop for the masculine elements, and suits my clients' good taste," says Banks.

Resene recommends bathroom walls are painted in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen or Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom paint, with ceilings in Resene SpaceCote Flat Kitchen & Bathroom, and Resene Lustacryl Kitchen & Bathroom for the trim and joinery. These waterborne, low-odour, Environmental Choice-approved paints have a durable, washable finish that resists bacteria and mould.
