Colours, materials, and graphics all come together to form perfect backdrops for unique bathroom spaces. Mallika Thakker of Vibe Design Lab takes us through her vibrant commercial and residential projects to show us how it’s done…
Art on the Ceiling: This bathroom was made for a corporate office with a young staff profile. While we were required to create a fairly formal look, we added a splash of bold red and black to the ceiling, and a pop of colour with a red basin, in keeping with the young user profile. The ceiling here was hand painted by a team of artists specially commissioned for this project.
Vintage Inspirations: Part of a residential project for a family of three, we designed this space to go with the French classical look that we created for the house. A traditional floor tile with rich, deep colours is offset by the navy and white tones on the wall. The fittings and fixtures are of a vintage finish.
Quirky Business: A bathroom made for a large office of a media company. They reflect the fun and quirky nature of the business and the staff. A play of graphics, both print and hand-painted, were extensively used to create the final quirky look.
