Earthy Elements

Simple and stylish was the brief for this bathroom, which is part of a modern extension to a Californian bungalow. It suits the house because it’s the perfect balance of both modern and traditional elements. You have the contemporary floating shaving cabinet and vanity with exposed plumbing against a backdrop of subway tiles with anthracite grout that take us back to the home’s heritage. The sink is also reminiscent of the older-style butler’s sink that you often find in original Californian bungalows. The semi-gloss timber veneer cabinetry is retro in style and adds earthiness and warmth and picks up on the colour of the original timber door. The mocha-coloured matt tiles really ground the space, providing an elegant contrast to the timeless white and timber finishes.
