When a negative becomes a positive

This reinvented bathroom complements its classic home while adding alluring textural tiles and turning a ceiling anomaly into a feature

Designed by Jamie Durrant, Durrant Design

From the designer:

The ensuite has taken an entire interior makeover to bring the outdated home into the contemporary era. 

I drew upon earthy colour tones, natural elements and textures so that the European style of the home was reflected in the design process. 

The original finishes worked against the architectural form of the ensuite instead of harmoniously embracing its character.  

The ceiling has an interesting feature where it drops in the corner, however the existing layout made this area feel disoriented and small. 

Taking the tiles all the way to the ceiling has allowed the space to feel larger and highlights the ceiling drop as a design feature.   

I wanted to elevate the space by adding a heavily textured tile along the vanity wall. 

The Tribeca tiles by Tile Depot were the perfect colour tone – in keeping with the earthy colour palette while also adding a touch of glam. 

I persuaded my homeowners to get custom made mirrors by Joska & Son with additional lighting built into the back of them.  

The mirrors do a beautiful job in highlighting the texture of the feature tiles and creates a relaxing ambience in the space.
