This month we look to outdoor bathing for inspiration, and the art of blending an indoor and outdoor space to create a multi-purpose bathroom. This can be a wonderful way to play with space, colour and materials, and create something truly unique in the home.
This Australian bathroom has an urban feel to it, but the homeowners clearly have a connection with the outdoors. Large glass panes fill the bathroom with natural light, through which the eye is drawn to an intimate terrace where the Marlborough bath takes centre stage – giving the option to open the doors and bathe outside on a warm evening. The terrace floor tiles match those of the interior of the bathroom, creating a seamless flow between the two spaces. Likewise, striking emerald green wall tiles make a statement and contrast beautifully with the white bathtub.
This look is all about finding ways to give the impression of more space. Choose a practical tile that can line both interior and exterior walls and floors, to give the illusion of a never-ending room. Metallic accessories will lend a stylish, industrial feel to the space, whilst natural materials such as wood, stone and marble can be used both indoors and out.
