Urban contemporary bathroom

Urban contemporary bathroom | Design by Eleni Psyllaki @myparadissi

What happens when you have to design the perfect master bathroom for an incomparable apartment downtown? First, you fly to the moon, then spend an awfully long time visualising it, literally living inside your dreams. So, here's my brainchild. An urban contemporary bathroom, deprived of all unnecessary luxuries but with a generous treatment towards the needs of the inhabitants. And greens. How can I leave greens out of my design? No, can't do that. And that's not just greens, it's a whole (mini) tropical garden happening in an enclosed atrium on the one side of the bathroom.

As you might have guessed from the concept board I shared yesterday, the elements that characterise the design are:

*the grid. White tiles with black grout are happening throughout the walls and floor and create the perfect minimalistic geometric background 

*the circles. The vanity mirrors, ceiling lights and the statement Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair contrast and complete the geometric design

*light and shadow. The vertical beams projecting to part of the roof create the most incredible shadows in the morning hours and add up to the geometric essence of the design. The motorized shutters help control the amount of light entering but also act as an additional design element

*the greens. The large atrium found in the middle of the wall brings not only light and nature indoors but also helps separate the two major bathroom uses; the bath and the shower. The rich tropical vegetation adds a laid back note to the otherwise stark design. As a complement to the exquisite atrium jungle, a mini flowerbed of grass is located on the short wall that hides the toilet

What I mostly love about this bathroom design, though, are the unrefined amenities it provides to its owners guided by a simple and straightforward way of living. A hot long bath with a view of the city skyline at night, a quick shower in the morning surrounded by your personal urban jungle and a hanging chair to relax and unwind.

If you like this kind of style and would like to recreate it in your bathroom, here is a collection of similar or same products I used in my design. Check out, for example, this gorgeous matte black faucet, this whirlpool bathtub (which is the one I used here), this cool mirror and these rad white towels. Oh, and you definitely don't need an atrium to bring a touch of the tropics in your bathroom. A couple of banana leaves or an areca palm tree if you have more space are more than enough!

Needless to say that I would probably live inside this bathroom day in and day out if it were mine ^^ What do you think? Would love to hear your feedback on the design!

  2. Wow - this is stunning! Love the way you have incorporented the plants. Love the graphic impression the matte black faucet and the mirror gives. The only thing I would have changed, if this would to be my bathroom, is to replace the pendant chair with a cool daybed, both for relaxation and for a place to sit while dressing.
    Great work!

    1. Thanks Anette :) A daybed was on my original plans as well! It is possibly a bit more practical but then the airy curvaceous vibe of the bubble chair just won me ;)
