When designing a room, it is imperative that you allow natural light to flow and illuminate the design's features. When designing darker rooms, this can be a challenge, as dark surfaces absorb light. However, for interior design superstar Deborah Schmideg from Deborah Schmideg Interior Design @dsinteriordesign, this hasn't been a problem. Deb's latest project, a master ensuite which was featured in the House and Garden Top 50 Rooms, evokes a stunning sense of dramaticism through it's contrast of light and dark.
The stunning tile pictured in this design above is our Metal Oval Porcelain Mosaic. It's a gorgeous matte black tile with a metallic edge. You can view it on our website and order a sample here.
The dimensions of this master ensuite presented Deborah with a unique opportunity to create a bold theme of contrast between light and dark. The space evolved from a blank canvas as part of a full new home design and build. She created a daring, dark interior palette to contrast with the light streaming in from the 2 linear skylights; one 5 metres tall directly above the free standing bath, and the other above the double shower. The long, narrow space (7.5 metres x 3.7 metres) allowed Deborah to play with dark Royale marble and textured matte black oval mosaic tiles without the space feeling enclosed.
