what we love

LOOKING LUSH We all deserve a little treat from time to time, and while Lush’s bold and beautiful new range of bath and shower goodies look incredibly sweet, we can promise they are 100 per cent guilt free. We not only love the amazing products and scents, but also the company’s focus on ethical ingredients and its quest to end animal testing. We think any of Lush’s brightly hued products would look amazing piled up on the vanity, or carefully arranged in a bowl next to your brand-new bath!

Cool Galah’s Wire range is not only very cosy, but also features a…

bathrooms of the future

Remote controls are available for almost anything these days, from your sound system to the garage door, but did you know you can get one for your shower? “The latest innovation comes from Mira Showers with the introduction of digital thermostats,” says Marc Reed, managing director of bathroom design studio and showroom Candana. A digital remote control that allows you to turn your shower on and off, this technology eliminates the need for tapware in the bathroom. “This is definitely the way of the future,” says Marc. “However, it may be a few years before we see this take off.” A tap that uses a digital thermostat will have a much longer lifespan. “Rather than having to service and replace tapware components such as the cartridge, the only thing you’ll need…

We love how the freestanding bath, large rainfall shower roses and silver fi xtures add a modern, sophisticated twist to a calming, coastal atmosphere. COASTAL CALM “These three stunning bathrooms were part of a new-home build on the beautiful peninsula of Blairgowrie, Victoria. Inspired by the tranquil, coastal surrounds of the suburb, the contemporary design of these bathrooms exudes harmony and relaxation. All three spaces were coordinated using the same colour palette of neutral tones with white finishes and accessories. Not only has this created soothing and calming rooms, but it also provides balance and symmetry between the spaces. In addition, the large freestanding bath within the main bathroom off ers an added touch of opulence, while the contrast between the hexagonal wall tiles and large-format floor tiles in the ensuite succeeds…
