Episode Three: Master Suite Reveal


In episode three of the Dunne home renovation we reveal the master suite. I like to call this space the calm among the storm. With the footprint of the master bedroom and ensuite remaining the same, these rooms just needed a good cosmetic makeover! In the ensuite we show how more is more when it comes to tile choices, and a separate toilet sees our boldest tile choice yet! 

In the master suite we wanted to create a space to switch off, a place that was really pared back and a place to relax. In the ensuite we space planned so many different options, how to move everything around to create a better layout and in the end the layout that was there was pretty much perfect. We tweaked one door into the toilet gutted the whole thing and started again.

So we’ve gone with the herringbone tiles from Perini in a beautiful concrete-y grey that’s got a whole lot of tone through it to create a bit of a feature. We think we’ve created a really modern but relaxed, with a little bit of charm type of bathroom. 

This is our master suite! This room was all about creating a sense of calm and we’ve really achieved that through the use of texture. We’ve got the Cultiver linen across the bed and that warm texture from the rug under foot which breaks up the floorboards throughout the house. I love how we’ve used the pendant lights to create this sense of pattern and light play against the lining boards on the back wall. 

And in the ensuite you can really see how all of our tile selection have started to come together. That beautiful chevron pattern running down the wall in the shower and across the floor, then allowed us to create almost a feature wall within the shower with the white mosaic tiles. We wanted to add a lot of earthiness into this bathroom, we’ve got the cool grey tones and that’s given a whole lot of warmth by the beautiful hardwood vanity. The concrete basin sets that off and is just highlighted by a sense of luxury and elegance in the tapware that we’ve chosen. The living brass tapware just gives this sense of luxury but the patina over time gives it a really organic feel. 

And my favourite thing in the ensuite has to be the bold tile choice we’ve gone with in the toilet. Having a separate little toilet allowed us to do something wild and crazy and who doesn’t need a jungle within their bathroom?
