Victoria Wormsley has added an ornamental really feel to the toilet of her Hampshire residence. She spoke to Amelia Thorpe.
When inside designer Victoria Wormsley annexed an adjoining room to create an en-suite for her bed room, she was first targeted on making it as comfy as potential.
‘In a small toilet, the fittings are sometimes organized across the partitions, however that doesn’t work in a bigger room due to the big area left within the centre,’ explains Victoria. ‘Equally, you may really feel quite weak and uncovered bathing in the midst of an empty area.’
The answer right here was to deliver the bathe to the centre of 1 wall, quite than tucking it right into a nook, so anchoring the freestanding bathtub and positioning it for one of the best views seen by the window.
The tub is the Paris tub from The Water Monopoly (www.thewatermonopoly.com), a generously proportioned replica of a Twentieth-century French fireclay design, chosen to swimsuit each the scale of the room and the interval fashion of the home. A frameless glass display prevents water splashing from the bathe space and permits the great thing about the book-matched Carrara marble wall to be loved.
‘I prefer to furnish a rest room as I’d another room, to create a calming and welcoming really feel,’ continues Victoria, who added a richly colored classic Persian rug, upholstered chair and linen-silk combine curtains.
‘Folks generally fear about steam injury, but when the room is nicely ventilated, it isn’t normally a difficulty,’ she provides. Partitions and the custom-made vainness and panelling, each designed by Victoria, are painted in a mild, heat gray.
The vintage prints are from Etalage (www.etalage.co.uk). ‘They date from 1828, the identical age as the home, but have a graphic, up to date really feel that I really like,’ she explains. ‘They bring about the room to life.’
