Cockleshells and silver bells: how to design a bathroom

Where to start when designing a bathroom?

Simple, by using natural materials found on the beach.

A pink tinged cockle shell inspired this look with a calm pick foreground against the light blue watery mosaic tiles interspersed with silver highlights.

Mimicking the reflections of the sea, this finish is used on the walk-in shower, bespoke deep tiled bath tub and in the many cubby-holes carved in the walls.

In contrast, darker wood tones are used for the vanity units to create an elegant, natural finish.
