Design in the Park Perth

Design in the Park is a trade show for those involved in the architecture and design industry in Perth. Complimentary shuttle buses ran on a pre-arranged route throughout the afternoon and evening transporting participants to over 20 showrooms in Osborne Park. Each showroom presented the best and latest in design. Of course there was lots of refreshments and canapes to keep participants nourished and hydrated along the way. The above pics are a snap shot of the afternoon and evening fun at Sea of White.

I think I have GOLD fever. The 'sparkle' trend in homeware, lighting, bedding, clothing and shoes is unavoidable. It seems everywhere you look you see embellishment. If it's not sparkling it's studded. Newform's X-sense with the Swarovski crystals embedded in the basin mixer is my absolute favourite. Followed closely by Gessi Mimi. It's tall and feminine silhouette is so, so beautiful. The Swan range from Astra Walker will certainly challenge you. In the right house, with the right bathroom it will sit grandly and demand respect. Even Ikea has introduced a gold kitchen mixer. I love its simplicity. Imagine it in a completely black kitchen. Wow!

Eva Solo Bathroom

Soap dispenser or soap holder??? Which one are you? Well in my household I have both. Recently I came across these stylish pieces from Eva Solo (designed by Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbaek). The soap dispenser has concealed pump which is the point of difference compared to the vast range of soap dispensers on the market. As for the magnet soap holder, WOW, I have no idea how this works, but I know I want one. The soap is attached to the magnet vertically away from the wall, the soap almost looks like it is floating in the air, and keeps residue well away from the wall. The Eva Solo bathroom range is available from Top3. Images/info via Top3

Bathroom Design Perth

This is a floor plan for my client MM. This bathroom doubles as an ensuite to the master bedroom and has 2 doorways. MM's brief was to create luxurious bathroom with a corner bath or spa, wall hung vanity with as much storage as possible. Here's the bathroom I proposed to MM. A corner bath from Kaldewei which has a magnificent curved front panel. This opened up the floor space perfectly. The Punta Duo bath is a porcelain on steel bath.The Punta Duo bath with panel cannot accommodate Multipoint Hydrotherapy Systems so I opted for a massaging shower. The Raindance Allrounder shower head offers 3 jet hand shower, overhead and body shower features. It's unique adjustable holder allows a full range of positions from overhead to body shower. The Variable (1000 x 510mm) wall hung vanity from Villeroy & Boch complimented the curved Punta Duo and was an easy choice. Extra storage was created with a shaving cabinet from Marbletrend.

Lastly the tapware, MM chose the Grohe Touch basin mixer and shower mixer. She loved the design of the handle.
