Rose of Brazil

A rose is a rose is a rose…

The application of natural stone is always a definitive statement of luxury. Its aesthetic value and functional qualities have been prized for millennia and today still carries the same reputation as a material of the finest quality.

With extensive experience in the applications, varieties, qualities and quarries of the world our design team are constantly evolving new and imaginative ways to apply one of our favourite materials.

Working closely with our client to realise their vision for a distinctly feminine space we sourced two subtly contrasting but complementary stones for this bathroom. The walls feature polished Charme quartzite in large format 900mm x 600mm portrait tiles, which run into the floor tiles of the same format but in honed finish – a must in any area where there is a risk of slipping.

The highlight of this bathroom is however the Brazilian Cristallo Rosa ‘Wow’, widely considered one of the most beautiful and expressive quartzites on earth. The vanity cabinet features a monolithic curved countertop, its characterful deep pink veins striking, yet engendering that warm feminine tone.

The shower features two full height illuminated slabs of Cristallo Rosa, cut to size and installed as single individual pieces over 2.5m tall.

If you’re interested in understanding more about our experience and use of natural stone in our luxury projects our design team would be delight to hear from you.
