Imagine yourself enjoying a refreshing shower, the sunlight streaming through tripled glazed French doors; opening onto a secluded outdoor private terrace with beautiful views.

It is a dream for many of us. For one American family it is though the reality – and the culmination of a major renovation project over the past 8 months.

My team has been working in a villa in Valbonne to completely transform a 1980s terracotta red building into a smart, contemporary and highly energy-efficient home. Over recent months, we have shared photos from the project – and below you will see pictures of the stunning new bathrooms we have created.

The result: a contemporary villa with a master bathroom with an open plan “his and her” showers and an impressive marble bath; two guest rooms also with ensuite facilities together with a smart downstairs toilet.

The showers have a range of different shower head fittings including a massage option… an ideal way of relaxing after a busy or stressful day.

Marble offers many advantages and is a beautifully elegant, natural stone. We have installed floor to ceiling marble tiles – 2.4m high and 1.2m wide – which took two of my team to lift!  This required some precise calculations to ensure the ceilings were designed to exactly the right height and the finish looks superb.

In the master bathroom, there is a striking marble bath with floor standing bath taps …. The bath itself weighs 300kg and it took six people to carry.  In addition, we have fitted a handmade and hand-painted bespoke vanity unit with a mirror, hidden lighting and touch open doors.

The guest rooms are equipped with ensuite bathrooms, showers and toilet.

Finally, we have added a number of other features: the master bathroom is fully air-conditioned (the first time we have undertaken this for a project); there is a hidden shoot for the laundry which falls straight from the basket in the bathroom; hidden drainage and the option of different lighting, with the choice of muted or brighter lights on all of the lighting dimmer switches.
