Part of a 19th-century townhouse in Paris, redesigned by Stéphanie Coutas, the “her bathroom” features Calacatta Oro marble by Marbrerie de la Seine and Damasco Bianco tiles by Bisazza, creating a feminine and incandescent space.
Designed in Florence by Simone Speciale Luchinat of architecture firm S&L Associati, this bathroom is made entirely of black slate, black-painted wood and stainless steel, resulting in a moody and masculine space — perfect for the client’s young son. The stainless-steel bath is a standout feature.
This home by Rachoff Vella Architecture in regional Victoria pays homage to its bush surrounds with its liberal use of timber, which, in the bathroom, contributes to a warm and luxurious space.

This master ensuite by Roselind Wilson Design features a generous walk-in shower and free-standing bath. The floating vanity forms a feature for this luxurious space, complete with a beautifully veined marble splashback and floors and tessellated tiles. These beautiful finishes form the backdrop for the bronze and glass wall lights and glass taps.
Located in a new extension to an old coach house, this bathroom by interior designer Clare Pascoe boasts high ceilings and magnificent views of the countryside. The double vanity unit provides character as well as storage space. Texture was created by layering and stepping the door fronts with oak veneers.
Black & white
Designed by Chris Knierim of Designer Constructions, this bathroom in the Forest Lodge Eco House (shown on Grand Designs Australia Series 4) features a monochrome palette that creates a modern and dramatic effect. In keeping with the eco brief for this home, these mosaic tiles were partly made using post-consumer recycled glass.
