Mauve By Design

The original bathroom was so small, so part of a neighbouring bedroom was integrated into the design to turn it into a master ensuite.

"The mauve bateau-style bath became the focal point of the bathroom and the stunning mosaic tiles complement perfectly" says Vivienne. "At first we wanted double basins, but our designer thought this might look too imposing in the room, suggesting a large single basin with a wall-hung unit underneath instead."

Practical Tip: If you really want a wooden floor in your bathroom, opt for hardwood or engineered timber boards that will be more water resistant to moisture or porcelain tiles that look like real wood, easy to care for and they come in a great variety of colours, sizes and textures.
