Design artistry

The brief

The process started with selecting a dramatic neutral and dark veined marble for the walk-in shower, setting the tone for the entire room. This choice was pivotal, as it introduced both the room's central dramatic element and its neutral palette.

To complement the marble, Reece opted for vertical glossy white zellige tiles. Their unique texture and shine add depth and contrast, reflecting light to balance the darker elements. The brass finishes and traditional brassware were carefully chosen to inject warmth into the space, creating a luxurious feel that ties the room together. The matt carbon vanity unit, designed with ample storage, was a practical addition that didn't compromise on style. Its sleek design and dark colour further anchor the room's dramatic flair, while providing essential functionality.


A play of light and dark

The result

The final look is chic and full of character. The deep taupe walls envelop the space in warmth, creating a cosy atmosphere that contrasts beautifully with the cool marble and glossy tiles. The brass finishes catch the eye, offering spots of warmth and luxury throughout the room. The walk-in shower, with its dramatic marble, becomes the focal point, while vertical zellige tiles add texture and movement, leading the eye upwards and making the room feel taller. The result is both timeless and decidedly modern.
