Take inspiration from Sir Norman Foster\'s bathroom collection
As bathrooms become customised, luxury dens of relaxation and escapism a new trend for bringing our favourite outdoor destinations indoors is emerging.
Fuelled by the organic materials and finishes associated with the contemporary look that has enjoyed so much attention in recent years it seems that we’re now ready to bring even more of the outdoors indoors in order to create or re-create favourite locations such as beaches or holiday locations.
Trying to capture feelings, positive associations, and the essence of a place or style through interior design in itself is nothing new but in the world of luxury bathrooms the organic form is now catching up with the function as far as customers are concerned.
Ocean Bathrooms of Bridport in Dorset is an example of a luxury and designer bathroom company who are incorporating elements of their beautiful Jurassic coast surroundings in bathroom design in a way that captures the imagination of today’s luxury bathroom customer.
Owner of Ocean Bathrooms Robert Muhl explains more about the move towards truly organic:
“We’re situated about a mile from the Chesil Bank on the fabulous Jurassic coast. Anybody who’s been here, perhaps on holiday, can’t fail to be affected by its rugged beauty. TV Chris Chibnall describes his series Broadchurch as ‘a love letter to the scenery of the Jurassic coast’, and the leading man of the series David Tennant commented that ‘this is the only place you’d ever want to come on holiday’. People now want to create some of the beautiful and tranquil elements of places such as these in their bathrooms and we’re able and happy to help them do just that.”
Using real pebbles and designer chic Ocean Bathrooms have therefore created the perfect bathroom for those of us who long for adventure or who just wish to be on an exciting holiday every single day. This design features a luxury bath that’s surrounded by a re-creation of the iconic Chesil Beach with the bathroom floor and walls tiled with rugged and tactile stone mosaics. The \"Chesil\" style bathroom is currently on display at the Ocean Bathrooms Bridport showroom.
Robert also points out that the \"organic\" trend in designer bathrooms also applies to some of the very latest basins and baths which can be designed in more free and organic ways by the customers themselves.
“Top designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullac have designed a collection of eye catching basins that let the bathroom user decide how to put them together. The basin has an attached shelf which can be placed in various combinations with the taps and the taps can be wherever you would like them to be! They don’t have to be fixed in the middle of a basin but can sit on a shelf with a spout too.
The deep, relaxing, spacious Bouroullac gives you the same shelf space, plus there is even somewhere to place the odd bottle of bubbly not to mention a couple of candles.”
