Design firm Studio McGee has totally transformed the bathroom of this heritage 1900s U Street house.
The team began by gutting the original bathroom, tearing down the heavily patterned ivy-motif wallpaper, resolving the tricky black mould issues, stripping out the traditional white vanity and toilet and even knocking down a wall between a storage cupboard and the main bathroom to create a more spacious feel. They then set to work crafting a look which would blend old and new styles; the primary elements which helped craft this timeless look are the pure white walls, large hexagon marble tiles on the floor and matching smaller hexagonal tiles on shower floor – a traditionally luxurious material in an angular, contemporary format. For the ‘old’ elements, the Studio McGee team chose brassware with exposed fittings and an aged golden-brass finish.
A large shower, freestanding bath, matching toilet and duo of integrated basins provide homeowners Alexis and Mateo with all the practical necessities, while the muted colour rug, textual ladder towel rail and warm wood vanity unit pack the room full of character.
