WOW FACTOR: Wallcovering

Good Homes Roomsets Bathroom

Image: Andrew Boyd

A bold black-and-white theme is the star of this stunning scheme. Stripped back and utilitarian, the wow factor comes from the statement black wall, monochrome tiles and chequerboard floor – all contrasted with the glorious simplicity of a white free-standing bath as a centrepiece. A contemporary shower and two statement black basins provide the functional pieces – with clay-coloured grout adding definition and impact to the white tiles. Elsewhere in the room, natural materials of bamboo and rattan sit with modern storage furniture and bright green foliage to bring in warmth, freshness and soft curves to the otherwise angular scheme.
