Hertfordshire Bathroom



A butterfly bathroom for a little princess

Having been commissioned to create a fairytale bedroom for our client’s young daughter, we were also engaged to convert the next-door bedroom to an en suite bathroom. She had a love of butterflies, so we included them in the design by using an antique finish cream paint and then hand-painting each butterfly separately.

The central focus is the handmade vanity cabinet with split turned pilasters and a traditional skirted plinth with a cut out to create bracket feet to make it seem freestanding. Above is a frieze surrounding the mirror leading to a plinth block to accommodate wall-mounted taps by Perrin & Rowe.

The basin is set into a marble work surface, while Crema Marfil marble is used for the floor. A large cupboard with double doors is at the base with a false drawer above it that ensures the basin is completely concealed when the doors are opened.

To continue the theme, we created a framed triple mirror surround within a recess, which also features hand-painted butterflies. Directly beneath is a highly polished pewter bateaux bath under wall-mounted bath taps, also by Perrin & Rowe. On either side are two bow fronted chrome towel rails.
