Character Building

Working with the period features of this listed building, Senior Designer Chris Payne from Ripples Bristol has created a welcoming guest bathroom full of modern charm.

In this Arts & Crafts property Chris Payne, Senior Designer at Ripples Bristol, was tasked with transforming a dark, dated guest bathroom into something fresh and welcoming for family and friends. Being Grade II listed, the brief was to work with existing architecture, creating a balance between cosy and contemporary whilst being sympathetic to the eaves and angled walls of the original building. Chris came up with a design that really made the most of the space, with a freestanding curved bath set at an angle, complemented by a standalone walk-in shower and white gloss basin vanity unit. Added features such as the Inchyra Blue Farrow & Ball painted wall and armchair sitting casually in the corner add to the lived-in and loved look.
