Bloomsbury style bathroom (3)


new Bloomsbury Group style painted bathroom suite comprising 2 door vanity unit with wall mirror unit & bath panels

This is what happens when you let an artist interpret another artists work, a totally new take on the original to produce a very striking new bathroom. The idea for this suite was inspired by a lovely painted cupboard at Charleston farmhouse. This formed the idea for the vanity unit, which then grew into a matching style bathroom. The designs & colours are typical of the style at Charleston.

The furniture looks quite bright when shown as a cut out on white background (bear in mind we're trying to showcase what we do), but add in some old floorboards & muted wall colour & you have the look. You can add or subtract from the overall design if you want less/ more colour or pattern. The 2 door vanity unit is fitted with 1 shelf & removable back panel for fitting pipework. The vanity size can be adapted a bit (or even made as a double), but needs to keep the general proportion for the door panels circles designs. The height could be lowered if you wanted to use a sit on coolie basin rather than an undermounted sink as shown. Choose your own tap(s).

There is a strong visual unity between the vanity & bath panel designs. The vanity is shown with a dark granite worktop, but you can have a range of worktops, from wood, painted, granite, marble, Corian, Glass, etc. etc.. For basins you can choose between an undermounted sink, sit-on bowl, or inset, etc. The wall mirror is one of our designs, & looks very striking. It is inspired by an Omega Workshops piece (the round top forms an Omega). The shape 7 colours match the rest of the furniture. The mirror could be made as a wall mirror unit as well. We don't give out sizes until we've agreed a specification with a client, as made to order.

Rather than doing as Omega & Bloomsbury did, in buying up junk furniture & decorating it, we design & produce pieces from new with the designs planned from the start to create unified pieces. The bathroom pieces above are shown in a clean new painted finish, but we can antique these pieces to give them an older look if you prefer. Shown above left is the 2 door version of the vanity unit. Above right is shown a 4 door double vanity unit, with a limestone worktop & undermounted sinks. You could add a matching upstand to either version. There is a huge range of stone worktops to choose from.

This bathroom suite manages to do something the Bloomsbur / Omega artists never did (& possibly never wanted to do either) & that was to produce a co-ordinated range of furnishings. They were artists generally producing 1 off pieces. This bathroom shows how you can take & adapt their ideas & designs to produce new work. The result is very striking to say the least, but looks crisp & contemporary as well. These are the pieces that establish the look & feel of a bathroom, not the shower, WC, towel rail, etc. The WC seat could be painted the same colour scheme as well. Start getting clever with the rest of the room interior to achieve the look, ie wall colours picking up the furniture colours, curtains/blinds, flooring. Made to order.
