THEY SAY THE KITCHEN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ROOM IN THE HOUSE, BUT WE’D ARGUE THAT WHEN IT COMES TO CREATING A BEAUTIFUL AND PRIVATE SPACE FOR PAMPERING, THE BATHROOM IS UNRIVALLED IN IMPORTANCE.
We want every BBA bathroom to feel like a luxurious sanctuary, a calming space awash with natural light, inspired design and styling, and always with a hint of the unexpected. It should be indulgent, a personal retreat, a place of escape, with the fragrance from BBA’s hand-mixed bath salts or a scented candle filling the air.
Our bathrooms reflect our signature BBA aesthetic and always high-end luxury. It’s about deep, free-standing statement bathtubs, over-sized rain-shower heads, the rich patina of brass tapware or sleek, dramatic black fittings, a mix of old and new, perfectly round timber-framed mirrors, vintage etched mirrors or mirrors framed with a gold gilt edge and so much more. Bathrooms that are outside too. They add an extra sense of luxury, the private, personal spa-like experience, while connecting you with the beauty of your surrounds. It’s the view to Julian Rocks from the master ensuite in The Lodge, the star-studded Byron night sky from the deep tin bath in The Cottage, or the lush greenery surrounding the outdoor showers in the Villas that set the BBA experience apart.
We’ll add a touch of interest with wallpaper like the soft turquoise tropical print in Magnolia House which creates an interesting foil for the vintage claw-foot bath, and in Bower House, bold black and white stripes serve to elongate the small space which houses the pedestal basin, vintage mirror and polished brass wall-mounted light.
We’ll get creative with tiles, whether they’re conventional shapes and sizes, or over-sized and handmade like the beautiful glazed tiles from outdoor Eco we’ve used in The Lodge, our latest, totally bespoke new build. We love a herringbone, brick or standard bond pattern, or will create dramatic highlight panels, like the giant splashback which flows down the wall to also cover the shelf holding the vanity basin in the Magnolia House powder room. We left the patterned edge of the wall tiles as a feature in Bower House, rather than finishing to a level line – it’s unexpected and a visual delight.
