A beautiful kitchen or bathroom isn’t complete without equally stunning fixtures. Tapware can be a choice between making a statement or complementing the style of a room.
Setting the benchmark for contemporary and intelligent living, the Caspian is a collection of 18 oversize residences in the impeccable Hampton, Victoria, location. Peaceful with a coastal charm, the homes feature a mixture of deco details that reflect a timeless aesthetic. Richard Ward, of Bayley Ward Architects, explains that the guiding principle was “to create spaces for all seasons, with the deliberate use of tone and texture to stimulate the senses”.
The kitchen comprises European oak flooring, feature lighting and the Pegasi M pull-out sink mixer curve from Faucet Strommen. The antique brass medium finish on this mixer is an organic finish that will tarnish, wear and oxidise with time. Inconsistency is the beauty of this finish and while the exterior may change, the structural integrity of the tapware remains the same. The smooth curve of the tap reflects the coastal feel of the home and unique edge of the island benchtop.
The good looks don’t end in the kitchen. The spacious bathroom oozes opulence and clever design. Staggered ceramic tiles and graceful natural stone are complemented by lovely brass tapware, while rain showers located behind fluted glass doors are an exquisite feature. Consistency is key is this space, where Faucet Strommen’s delightful taps fill the room. All with the same antique brass medium finish, the bath, basin and wall mixers, as well as the overhead shower and toilet roll holder are from the Pegasi range.
The combination of textures, from the aged finishes to the natural stone, brings this bathroom to life. We’d tap that.
