Emulating the urban and natural elements of its New York namesake, The Highline display by Webb & Brown-Neaves channels an industrial style with organic features.
Clearly evident in the home’s bathrooms, this blend utilises defining lines and matte fixtures for a subtle yet luxurious look.
Reece Product Specialist Laura Gray said the brief leant itself to material crush, a bathroom trend focused on experimenting with varied and sophisticated textures, materials and colours.
“We ensured elegant shapes with fine, striking lines were integrated into the product mix to deliver an opulent style that perfectly matched the brief,” she said.
“When it came to the tapware selection, we wanted a product that not only would look perfectly in place in The Highline, but embodied this element of timelessness and on-trend design.
“Therefore, the Milli Axon range was the perfect choice – bringing a dual toned design with a classic chrome and edgy matte black finish that was perfect for The Highline.
“When it comes to colour in tapware, chrome reigns supreme in Australian households, but coloured finishes continue to grow year on year, with new tones and hues becoming available on the market for true personalisation in the bathroom.”
Taking advantage of a space more often utilised by guests, Ms Gray said her favourite standout feature of the home took pride of place in the powder room.
“The LAUFEN Kartell Freestanding Basin is the definite standout feature for me,” she said.
“When it comes to creating a powder room, it’s always important to remember that this is the most visited room for guests, so it’s a great room to house a knock-out feature piece like a freestanding basin.”
Ms Gray provided some advice for people looking to incorporate similar design ideas in their own homes.
“The beauty of The Highline look is it’s quite versatile for any home, with luxury materials used sparingly in the right locations for big impact,” she said.
“Using black tapware instantly draws the eye, and the remainder of the bathroom then supports the look.
“In a bathroom with a material crush style, we recommend experimenting with textures and materials in innovative ways that provide a feast for the senses.
“With your colour palette, start with a simple base like white, grey or natural timber, then layer over the top with rich patterns, textures, finishes and materials to make it pop.”
