Breaking New Ground


Given her background in film and television set design, this client’s request for a fun, high-impact space to wow guests was to be expected.

However, the room’s location, literally dug from the ground beneath the existing home, presented a challenge.

With no natural light to work with, designer Aaron Dew of Yeomans Bagno & Ceramiche chose to embrace the moodiness of the space and incorporate task and ambient lighting, including a circular Ablaze backlit mirror, to create immediate dramatic impact.

With the bathroom intended to complement an adjoining entertaining space, playful textures were initially introduced to add colour and interest, beginning with a foundational base of grey terrazzo tiles at the floor. These were continued up the wall to a ledge, creating a slab-like effect, then contrasted spectacularly with a bespoke pairing of Yoso Concave mosaic finger tiles in Medium Grey and Cloud, wrapping around the walls to infuse the room with personality and a sense of depth.

The lineal look was continued with a scalloped V-groove Waverley vanity in Bottega Oak Woodmatt with a Cherry Pie Jasmine top, matched with a gloss white Margo basin.
Frameless glass, an understated white toilet suite and Meir tapware, in Tiger Bronze, were further selected to complete the zone, which now easily meets the brief as a showstopper.
