Marble Marvel

Part of the complete renovation of a 19th century timber farmhouse sited within 11 acres of English parkland, this sizeable extension was built with panoramic glass windows, offering views of the nearby lake. Occupying part of the building, the new master bathroom is swathed in strikingly veined Calacatta marble and furnished with statement pieces from Drummonds.

The new owners wanted a traditional English bathroom which incorporated subtle contemporary accents, and which placed marble as a feature material. Having been admirers of Drummonds’ classic designs and high quality craftmanship for many years, they were the couple’s first choice when it came to bathroomware.

The first thing you see when you enter the room, Drummonds’ Tay bath in a hand painted candy pink finish takes centre stage and provides a playful pop of colour. On either side of the entrance, two Single Buttermere vanities bring a classic touch. Uniting a fine china clay top with prettily tapered metal legs, they have a harmonious simplicity, in keeping with the overall feel of the room.

An unlacquered brass finish features throughout, from the imposing floor standing shower to the basin and bath mixers and accessories including the 4-bar towel radiator and large bath rack. The beauty of this finish is that it will age over time, developing a characterful patina which will perfectly reflect the style and heritage of the original building.
