K Designs set out to design
her own home, it was always
destined to be a stunner.
“It’s a funny thing being your own client
when you’re a designer. It seems that you
break every rule in the book,” she reflects.
The bathroom was an integral part of
the overall brief. Envisioned as a retreat,
it would be a place to rest and rejuvenate.
The alluring ensuite connects to the
main bedroom through a beautifully
appointed walk-in robe.
From floor to ceiling, the bathroom
is wrapped with luxurious finishes.
Vanities housed in a stone podium
‘float’ in the centre of the room. This
sense of floating is reinforced by mirrored
cabinets suspended from the ceiling, which
help draw you into the central functionality
of the design.
Sculptures are displayed in wall niches
and the bath itself is a visual icon, while a
dressing and makeup table places all the
required tools at your fingertips.
Natural light filters into the bathroom
through light-coloured louvred blinds,
which also allow tranquil views of the
lake opposite the home.
Both the main ensuite and the bedroom
spill out onto a private outdoor lounge,
capturing the northern aspect and taking in
the beauty of the trees and the lake. Simply
perfect after a long, relaxing bath.
