“I believe a house is more a home by being a work of art.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
Nature is a work of art, and we invite the beauty of nature when designing homes for our clients. Every part of the home is essential to the whole, and this includes the bathroom. Natural stones are loved for luxurious bathroom designs. No two stones are unique, which makes every space one of a kind. Here, we share how natural stone surfaces elevate the ambience of some of our award winning residential interior design projects in Singapore.
Luxury Hotel Look
Spaces with natural light will benefit from a stone that looks gorgeous in both natural and artificial light. Yeni Grey marble creates a high end hotel look for the master bathroom in this black-and-white Good Class Bungalow at Cable Road. The fine veins and colours add elegance to this spacious sanctuary. Aside from being low maintenance, stones with delicate tonality are ideal for spaces where book-matching is not a priority.
Onyx for Exclusivity
In this Good Class Bungalow at Leedon Park, an en suite bathroom features Forest Onyx walls paired with Nero Marquina marble flooring. One of the most premium stones for interior use, onyx presents an outstanding beauty and rarity that draws many clients. Here, the Forest Onyx stone slabs are aligned to display the dramatic horizontal patterns.
Double the Visual Impact
In the same bungalow at Leedon Park, District 10, this glamorous powder room is bound to make a strong impression. A stunning exotic stone like Magma Black granite also draws attention away from the lack of windows. Patches and veins of gold, yellow and orange contrast against the Shanxi Black granite floor. Placing it against a wall-to-wall mirror above the vanity counter doubles the visual impact of the stone.
Magnificence of Travertine
Travertine is loved for its trademark veins and warm, neutral tones. Its natural irregular holes give it character. Filling it with an epoxy filler makes the stone less porous, and therefore suitable for wet spaces like the bathroom and powder room. The Walnut Travertine in this space exudes a beautiful earthy character that can be observed in this cosy and luxurious resort-themed home at Chestnut Crescent. For maximum contrast, we matched the filled and polished Walnut Travertine walls with Palisandra Gold flooring.
The selection of exotic stones is a personalised process guided by the design intent, as well as our client’s needs and budget. We shortlist suitable slabs for our clients before selecting the most appropriate stones for cutting. These slabs can either be slab-cut, slab-matched or book-matched. Before the delivery of the stones to the site, we visit the factory with the client to review the dry lay and confirm the placement configuration of the stones.
