This master suite features standing cabinetry as a dividing element within the wider environment.

As part of a comprehensive villa renovation by Steve Gliosca of Urbane Projects, this large master suite with walk-in robe and bathroom was introduced at the front of the property.The luxurious bathroom has a freestanding spa bath, closed off toilet, walk in shower and a vanity with a double-sided mirror. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by the built-in vanity and shutters that create privacy or open up to reveal a double-sided mirror. The master suite, in turn, is separated from the rest of the house by feature cabinetry. A monochromatic colour palette is paired with the use of natural materials to provide a backdrop of pattern and texture for the space, while underfloor heating keeps the entire suite cosy.
