One of our favorite houses of 2015: a London rehab by Daniel Lee, a designer (and digital developer) who runs Studio Ore. The clean-lined, calm interiors, designed and overseen by Lee himself, have a distinctly minimal Scandi aesthetic. We’re particularly taken by the master bathroom—not a surprise, as the floors, vanity, and bathtub, are completely clad in Dinesen floorboards. Here’s a closer look at the elements to replicate the look of the bathroom.

Above: The vanity is custom-built using Dinesen floorboards. The stain is Floor Soap White available from Dinesen (for a tour of the house, see The Uncluttered Life in London).
Above: A Duravit tub surrounded by Dinesen boards creates an architectural statement. Again, white soap is used as a finish; according to Lee, an additional application of soap can be used to reseal the wood. The solid shutters by UK-based Shutter Shop
allow for privacy. The beach stones and the coral add a natural element to the bathroom.
Above: Lee designed the handmade raw (unlacquered) brass bathroom faucet. This brass faucet and several other fittings are available via Lee’s design Studio Ore
. The backsplash is a piece of white marble.
Above: The round mirror above the vanity is vintage and has been repainted. Try Ikea’s Skogsvåg Mirror
for a similar look; $39.99.
Above: The Duravit Bathtub in Durastyle
measures 70 7/8 inches by 31 1/2 inches in white alpin (built-in or for panel); $563.76 from Home Essentials Depot.
Above: The towel hanging on the ladder is a vintage linen towel. See Linas Linen Towel
for a similar option; $60 from Waterworks.
Above: The bathroom is painted in Flake White
from the Paint Collection. A bucket of 2.5 liters of paint costs £53.00 ($78) from Fired Earth.
