“Being a classic Athfield Architects-designed home, we already had a great vaulted ceiling to work with. This was plastered and finished in a deep neutral colour, with concealed up-lighting accentuating its beautiful curving form.”
Mills had already used walnut timber for other joinery in the earlier, wider renovation so this was his go-to material for the bathroom’s vanity and the substantial privacy wall with inset storage that separates off the toilet area.
“All the joinery was finely detailed to accentuate the calm, elegant air we wanted to create.”
And the interior of an existing concrete-pipe skylight was painted with a Porter’s liquid bronze paint that has a patina that complements the rich walnut.
The bronze fittings have a timeless feel, while the floor and wall tiles evoke worn sandstone.
