Puttin’ on the Ritz
Everything about this master suite, from the ornate furnishings to the antique-style cast-iron bathtub, references a more glamorous era.
When you enter a suite in a five-star hotel, you close the door on the world outside and walk into a private sanctuary. That is precisely the feeling created by this master suite in a new display home built by Oswald Homes. At 800 m2, the house itself is grand, and the master bedroom has similarly grand proportions – it is large enough to boast a seating area. But the pièce de résistance is the view through wide doors to the bathroom featuring a large antiquestyle clawfoot tub on a raised plinth.
A tiled floor with a black-and-white chequerboard pattern laid on the diagonal serves to lead the eye directly to the tub, which is also dramatic in black and white. The look is not severe, however – the white marble tiles have grey veining that helps to soften the look. With character all important, the design team chose to line all the walls with Bianco Carrara marble tiles – the same marble that features on the plinth. This provides a strong visual continuity and conveys an old-world aesthetic.
Preceding pages: Although this bathroom features a limited palette of materials, it has plenty of glamour, thanks to the dramatic positioning of an antique-style clawfoot bathtub on a marble plinth. Facing page: All the walls, including the shower niche, are lined with Bianco Carrara marble tiles, which provide textural character. Above: The colours in the master bedroom – black, gold and silver – set the tone for the bathroom beyond. Regency-style wallpaper, a dramatic area rug and a wide opening to the bathroom are distinctive features of the suite.
