The old-school workmanship of this beautiful Federation-style bathroom make it a feature in the home
“This authentic recreation of a Federation-style bathroom showcases the beautiful decoration and detail of that era, a classic look that is still extremely popular in modern homes. Tiling is very much an art form of the period, with precise placement of dark feature tiles in the main space and shower recess, along with pencil and border tiles against a neutral backdrop of creamy travertine and limestone mosaics. Old-school workmanship is highlighted in the detail of the vanity cupboards and mirrored medicine cabinet, which is continued in the toilet suite. Accessories such as the lever tap sets in lifetime chrome finish and the black granite vanity top and splashback add vintage style and substance.”
Designer: Schots Home Emporium
EXPERT TIP: It’s worth contracting a tiler who specialises in Federation-style bathrooms as sizing up the tile design to the space is crucial when recreating decorative tile features.
WE LOVE: The neutral colour palette, which provides a blank canvas for the tile artwork.
