European charm bathroom


A French provincial bathroom where light and old-fashioned style mix perfectly

“This light-soaked bathroom forms part of a larger renovation, and the owners wanted a design that would fit with the French provincial aesthetic they’d planned for the rest of their home. A small, older-style window and a wall of mirrors dated the old space, and the client was after something new, bright and full of character. The long, narrow room provided a challenge, but a generous bath and a broad French-style window draw the eye across and help create the illusion of a larger space. Antique French pieces and exposed brick evoke the feeling of spending a weekend away at a luxurious European B&B and contrast beautifully with the modern bath, basin and lighting. The heated towel rail and shower rose promise an inviting escape in which every convenience has been carefully considered, while the generous vanity storage offers incredible practicality for the busy modern household. Tied together with beautiful pewter touches, sweeping panes of glass and charming accessories, this room is a perfect marriage of country Europe and modern Australia.”
