Buying a period property formerly owned by a firm of solicitors may not sound like the perfect family home renovation, yet with vision and inspiration Nady and Rob Messiou have transformed the building into a lavish example of vintage revival featuring a stunning, traditional yet quirky master bathroom loft conversion.
Bold, striking and brilliant, the bathroom design was inspired by a visit to The Crazy Bear Hotel in Beaconsfield where Nady and Rob fell in love with the characteristic William Holland freestanding copper baths that appear in every one of the fabulous 25 individually designed rooms. Rather than the eclectic eccentricity of The Crazy Bear styling however, they opted to return to the properties vintage roots, creating a luxurious Victorian revival based around the opulent Cuprosa Bateau bath and basin that had captured their creative hearts.
Adaptable to nearly any interior concept, the Copper Bateau with Tin interior reflects the bold accents and pattern of the Victorian inspired floor tiles creating a warm glow that dances in the light. Complementing the original sash windows, exposed beams and Victorian features the William Holland copper bath and basin blend into the period styling perfectly adding a glamorous aesthetic, whilst the frameless walk-in shower adds a contemporary dimension.
Rich colours, original features and a carefully selected mix of antique and contemporary furniture have created a truly timeless design that is warm, inviting and wonderfully unique.
