A Vintage-Style Loo in London, via Mark Lewis

March 10, 2017

Earlier this week we featured a London loft by designer Mark Lewis that channels the past and improves on it (see the whole project at A Modern Victorian Loft by Mark Lewis); today we’re zeroing in on the new made-to-look-old bathroom.

Above: The bathroom is lined in Metro White subway tile, which, Lewis says, is another detail he was able to economize on: “There are a lot of subway tile options out there; these cost next to nothing and they work well.” He uses off-white grout—”white gets dirt; gray looks too graphic.”
An antique mahogany-framed mirror hangs above a concrete shelf. The sink and faucet are from Aston Matthews.

The floor is patterned with nine-inch-square Reclaimed Quarry Tiles, which Lewis offers on his site; “they’re outdoor tiles used in factories and school courtyards.”

Above: The WC has an old-fashioned throne toilet of the sort seen in English country houses. It’s made of sapele, a mahogany-like hardwood (the Water Monopoly carries a similar Chaise Percée). The wallpaper is Tokai from Robert Kime.

The designer says it’s thanks to his contractor, Kevin Gale of Galower Build, that he was able to pull off flights of fancy such as this.
