Renowned for her eye for style, it comes as no surprise that supermodel Kate Moss has created stunning boudoir bathrooms in both her London home, and her country retreat. We take a tour to see how she's done it.
The Cotwolds home of fashion icon Kate Moss is well documented as being a masterclass in relaxed boho chic. Blessed with beautiful high ceilings and original period features, the interiors have been filled with distinctive vintage elements and unique personal touches, so that the decor truly reflects Moss's own individual style.
When it came to designing the bathrooms in the house, as well as injecting glamour, it was important to her that the choice of fittings respected the heritage of the building, and it was for this reason she settled on Drummonds.
Drummonds’ Double Lowther vanity with striking Verde Guatemala marble forms a focal point of the room, sitting perfectly against the hand-painted striped walls and warm oak floor.
An original single-ended cast iron bath – similar to Drummonds’ Clyde freestanding tub – was restored and painted in a dusky pink colour, giving it a new lease of life.
To keep the overall tones of the space warm, brassware in an unlacquered brass finish features throughout, from the Mull Classic basin mixer and bath and shower mixer, to the freestanding towel radiator. This finish will age with time, creating a patina that is perfectly in-keeping with the overall style and feel of the building.
All the elements came together to create a calming, tranquil space that offers a peaceful retreat from busy city life. Kate says: “Drummonds produce beautiful pieces that allow luxury and escapism. My bathroom in the country is my favourite bathroom in the world, it’s my haven.”
So much so that she chose Drummonds again when designing her bathroom in London.
This time she opted for the Double Lowther Vanity with white china basins teamed with a countertop in Arabescato marble, and this showstopping piece again acts as the centrepiece of the room.
In addition, she chose a freestanding, double-ended Spey bath from Drummonds with a hand-painted exterior. Adding to the grandeur of the space is the Brora High-Level WC.
The whole scheme is set against hand-painted Anenomes in Light chinoiserie wallpaper in Dusk colours, which is designed by Kate Moss in collaboration with De Gournay. The design echoes the tones of the veining in the marble, and is enhanced by the mirrored panels above the chrome washstand.
