This master suite features ornate furnishings, Regency-style wallpaper, clawfoot bathtub, Bianco Carrara marble wall tiles
When you enter a suite in a five-star hotel, you close the door on the world outside and walk into a private sanctuary.
That is precisely the feeling created by this master suite in a new display home built by Oswald Homes.
At 800m2, the house itself is grand, and the master bedroom has similarly grand proportions – it is large enough to boast a seating area. But the pièce de résistance is the view through wide doors to the bathroom featuring a large antique-style clawfoot tub on a raised plinth.
A tiled floor with a black-and-white chequerboard pattern laid on the diagonal serves to lead the eye directly to the tub, which is also dramatic in black and white.
The look is not severe, however – the white marble tiles have grey veining that helps to soften the look.
With character all important, the design team chose to line all the walls with Bianco Carrara marble tiles – the same marble that features on the plinth. This provides a strong visual continuity and conveys an old-world aesthetic.
The Manhattan vanity cabinetry is similar to the kitchen cabinetry, with hand-painted recessed panel doors and fluted mouldings.
Other special features that enhance the glamorous look of the suite include gold-framed mirrors, the chrome clawfoot legs on the tub and sparkling chandeliers in both the bedroom and bathroom.
