Bathroom Design

For those design lovers out there, I think you'd agree that Sarah Richardson is one fabulous designer. 
I personally adore pretty much everything she does. She has an amazing eye, incorporates beautiful fabrics, reinvents great furniture pieces and has an overall great attention to detail. 

Below is the bathroom she did for the first series of Sarah House where she purchased, gutted and completely renovated a house. 
I am in love with this bathroom, I think it is just divine.

Let's start at the vanity. She hasn't used traditional bathroom vanity furniture, she had this custom made. She's added the taller section for extra storage and then placed the make-up vanity on the other side. It works really well and has a unique {dare I say expensive} look. 
The darker contrast of the vanity also gives it a beautiful contrast to the crisp, fresh and light colour palette.

{left side} What you can't see in this picture is that this sits right next to the toilet, you wouldn't think so would you?
What a lovely idea, if you have the room to put a small side table with floor length mirror behind it. 
They serve function but also a lovely little vignette, something which at times can be forgotten in a space such as the bathroom.

{right side & below}Tiles -  in the shower are a beautiful glass mosaic used only on the main wall and then she's carried it through in a single line through the white tiles throughout the rest of the shower. 
The same mosaics have been used on the outside of the shower also, which is a great concept.

The floors on the tile are also not short of detail. 
Sarah has gone for a large rectangular tile on the floor and framed out each tile at the ends in a tile that is smaller and in a darker shade. 

The tub is gorgeous and sits so perfectly in this space. 
Behind the tub, Sarah has used drapes, again not a very traditional concept in a bathroom but I love it. 
It brings in so much to the space - colour, texture and an element of luxury.

My opinion is t hat she has created a space that you would want to spend a lot of time in. And it's not a bathroom you would find in too many homes. 

It definitely has the Sarah Richardson signature.
