From bold floral basins inspired by the 17th century Dutch Masters to a vibrant collection of Le Corbusier ceramic tiles and an Audrey Hepburn emblazoned bath, this month is all about making a statement in the bathroom.
Kohler Dutchmaster Collection: We’ve seen this look in wallpaper, bed linen and cushions but statement floral basins are an entirely different proposition! Inspired by the 17th century Dutch Masters, big and bold, moody florals adorn the surface of the basin’s interiors. Think large scale peonies, dahlias, ranunculus and hydrangeas in blush pink, ivory and darkest rose on an onyx background. There’s also a dainty butterfly in the mix too.
The collection was created in collaboration with renowned floral photographer Ashley Woodson Bailey and and the basins are available in round and rectangular iterations. $1999.
VOLA Matt White tap ware: Bespoke Danish fixtures and fittings brand VOLA has a new addition to its range of 14 colours – ‘colour number 28’ is a pure matte white and the finish is inspired by the tactile forms found in nature. Months of testing and colour reviewing resulted in the true ‘bright white’ colour that is available as a basin mixer, wall mounted rain shower and floor mounted spout. From $1,522.40.
Le Corbusier LCS Ceramics: A giant of modern architecture, Le Corbusier’s range of ceramics is available in Australia through Artedomus and it’s brimming with as much vibrant colour as we’d expect from the Swiss-French design genius.
Le Corbusier devised his first colour system in 1931 with 43 subdued shades but by 1959 had added 20 bolder hues. All 63 colours were inspired by nature which explains their timeless appeal – it’s truly incredible how modern they look even decades later.
Scarabeo veil sink: Available at Paco Jaanson in matte black and white, this basin was designed by Italian designer Massimiliano Braconi and features soft curves and an uber thin surface. Wall-mounted, the basin is unique in that it looks to be floating. $800.
Highgrove Bathrooms Jones & Jones concrete basins: Modern and minimalist, this new raw and textured range complements any bathroom look from industrial to luxe or rustic. The affordable basins are available in white and grey finishes in both round and oval shapes. From $308.
Victoria + Albert Audrey Hepburn bath: Referencing the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this bath is not for the faint-hearted! From $12,500.
