Steal This Look: A Penny Tile Bath in Australia

January 16, 2024

In this project from Kennedy Nolan architects in Melbourne, Australia, the team initially set out to restore the midcentury house designed by designers Chancellor and Patrick, but structural issues meant a new build was in order instead. But the architects still honored the original midcentury design—as seen in the main bathroom, complete with penny round wall tiles, quality fixtures, and rust-colored accents. Here’s a look at the details:
