A material mix is a great way of creating your own unique stamp on your interior.
When you’re a huge deal in the world of interiors, beauty, fashion, jewellery and travel, you absolutely know what you want when it comes to kitting out your own home. For Canadian Estée Lalonde, a hugely influential content creator who lives in London, there was only one option when choosing tile and stone for her two bathrooms.
The first is a subtle, sophisticated scheme comprising Ca’ Pietra Carter Ceramic Ecru for the walls and Nordic Honed Marble for the floor. The Carter Ecru is laid in an on-trend herringbone
effect, which adds visual interest and works well with the dark wood vanity unit, freestanding rippled effect BC Designs bath and matt black accessories. The result is an industrial look, softened
by the tile and stone materials, which add warmth and character to the space simply and stylishly. The bath is raised up on a small platform with a step up in the marble, giving it an elegant look that takes centre stage.
In the separate shower room, the walk-in shower area stands out with Ca’ Pietra Carter Ceramic Rose wall tiles, again laid in a herringbone effect for added wow factor and teamed with Long Island Hexagon Mosaic underfoot. The rest of the floor is laid with Nordic Honed Marble a large format tile that creates the illusion of added space and perfectly complements the blush pink of the
walls and Crittall-style shower screen, dark timber vanity unit and matt black accessories that echo the accent colours from the first bathroom. The result is akin to a smart boutique hotel that
has been carefully curated to make it unique, warm and inviting.
