Old-world bathroom with a modern edge


This bathroom, from Schots Home Emporium, oozes old-world charm and yet still has that much sought after modern edge thanks to the seamless flooring and crisp white walls

“Whether you’re renovating a home from the Victorian, Federation or Californian Bungalow eras, or even a lovely old country residence, an authentic old-world bathroom can become one of the best rooms in the house. The marble-topped period furniture with detail and glass doors, together with the butcher’s-shop-style tiles with capping, are signature features of a look that spells old-world charm. In this case, the grey rivet cast-iron bathtub adds a rustic industrial feel, perfectly complemented by the hand-beaten antique silver mirror. The design is given a modern edge thanks to the large seamless Villa travertine floor tiles and crisp white walls.”
Designer: Schots Home Emporium


EXPERT TIP: Accessories are a great way to add your own modern, industrial or rustic spin to a traditional bathroom.

WE LOVE: The deep freestanding cast-iron bath you just want to sink into.
