Minimalist bathroom with off white tones

A minimalist bathroom with off-white tones is likely to be the look of bathroom #3 in CASA PYLA. As known as Mila’s bathroom. Mila spent years telling me that our home in London was too white. Now that I’m moving towards warmer tones, she wants a white bathroom and ensuite. Go figure… This ensuite bathroom is 3.46 m2. It is not a huge space but decent enough for an ensuite. East facing, this bathroom has plenty of natural light all day and a window overlooking the front garden from the first floor. Before we knocked down the partition walls, there was a large built-in wardrobe and a basin. I’m replacing everything by an Italian shower with a niche (see picture below) and a large bathroom sink. I love this L: A BRUKET range, don’t you!? Plenty of storage is key to achieve a minimalist design for your bathroom. A large cupboard will allow you to store eye-sore skincare/hair products away while keeping some of your nicest skincare on display. When it comes to styling a bathroom, my …

A timeless, warm minimalist bathroom

A timeless, warm minimalist bathroom

This timeless, warm, minimalist bathroom caught my eye while I was pinning new things on my Pinterest boards. Especially the stone bathtub in grey travertine which I find simple and beautiful. Having four bathrooms to design for CASA PYLA, I’m currently drawn to minimalist bathrooms that have natural tones and textured walls.Designed by Architect Nicolas Schuybroek, this bathroom was conceived as a salon, hence the central bench.

Personally, I would have gone for minimalist lightings like the T series or this one by Charlotte Perriand. SHOP OVERSIZED MIRRORS Photography:  Claessens & Deschamps

Casa Cook Chania

CASA COOK hotels have always been a great source of inspiration. Their latest addition to their collection of laid-back, luxurious design hotels in Chania (Greece) is no exception to the rule. With its beautiful concrete walls, natural material & handmade furniture, this place makes you feel you are in Bali or Sri Lanka. A place where we’ve just spent 3 weeks over Xmas and I would return to in a heartbeat! This kind of laid-back, minimalist, textured vibe is what I envision for CASA PYLA although I will probably aim for softer, lighter tones to reflect the surrounding sandy beaches. CASA COOK Chania is a minimalist’s dream and open to families (the one in Rhodes in for adults only). Designed by Lambs and Lions Berlin and K-Studio architects as a low-slung village of modernist villas terraced against the side of a low hill in Chania, the hotel is surrounded by the Mediterranean and tropical plantings. The interiors by Lambs and Lions, in collaboration with interior stylist Annabell Kutucu, subtly contrast with the brand’s predilection for a midcentury vibe with …
