‘Hicks Residence’ project began with this very Bathroom renovation, as well as the Laundry. Two years later, Birdblack Design were again engaged to complete the Kitchen and the Living Areas, as well as the Guest House towards the back of the home.

This gorgeous Spanish Mission style home has such character and charm, yet is not a style seen very often of the South Coast of Australia. The brief was for the interior was to create maximised functionality and provide a truly ornate and elegant aesthetic.

Our clients were willing to invest significant money into transforming this Bathroom into an elegant retreat. They placed no parameters on our design, allowing Birdblack Design to create a large open bathroom aesthetic similar to a 5 star hotel suite.

We wanted to create a sense of anticipation when walking into the bathroom. The new wall with recessed timber display shelving creates a framed focal point of the beautifully appointed vanity and dresser space whilst providing the practicality of privacy to the toilet.

We designed a ‘wet area’ layout which combines a large double bath and open shower. By doing this it completely opens the space but still functions as two separate entities.

The materials selected certainly promotes the presence of a luxurious space. The stunning porcelain floor and bath wall tiles combine seamlessly with the juxtaposition of the natural granite hexagonal tiles. The tones are cool with the warmth bring brought through via the veining in the tiles and the walnut veneer of the joinery.

To add a spark of contrast a custom living brass finish has been introduced to all of the tapware and accessories throughout.

A word from the owners:
Sarah is a highly professional, talented designer who delivered a magical bathroom for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone who wants exceptional quality in both her technical and personal skills.
