Case Study | Victorian Townhouse West London
This Victorian townhouse overlooking Wandsworth common, West London, was designed by Sophie Rogerson of RFR Property and is featured in Homes & Gardens December 2014 issue.
The bathroom uses a muted palette, which the owners chose to contrast stronger colours in the rest of the house and create a relaxing, calming haven in which they can completely relax. The Humber bath has been custom painted a delicate shade of grey to complement the grey veins in the arabescato marble of the Double Lowther vanity basin.
Although the colour scheme is minimal, the bathroom has beautiful individual touches in the choices of patterns and materials used. The wicker baskets are ideal for keeping bathroom products in, to avoid cluttering the serene space. The painted cement tiles in the shower enclosure were designed to order, adding a lovely personalised touch. Careful thought has also been paid to the design of the shower, which combines sets of control from the Nene and Dee showers, so both the main shower and hand shower can be used separately. The controls for the main shower rose have been placed to the side of it, so that the temperature can be set before the owner stands under the stream.
