For a minimalist-minded family in West London, interior designer Jason Maclean of Studio Maclean performed an all-over reductionist remodel. Using a palette of black and white, Maclean introduced steel-frame glass doors, chevron flooring, marble detailing, and not much more. The approach extends to the bathrooms, although that’s not to say they’re spartan: Here’s a look at two that are luxuriously pared back and delightfully fanciful.
Master Bath with Steel-Frame Shower and Sink
The sink also rests on a rectangular steel base. The brass-frame mirror dates from the 1940s and the porcelain light above it is a vintage German design. The white paint throughout is Maclean’s go-to: Dulux’s Roman White.
Above L: Maclean says the chalk white tiles are “Victorian heritage,” made by a factory in business since the 19th century; they measure 100 by 45 millimeters (3.9 by 1.7 inches). The Modern 11.8-inch Rain Head shower fixture is from Crosswater. Above R: A closeup of the corner detailing and the Carrara marble shower tray.
When asked to tell us about himself, Maclean responded, “I am obsessive in everything I do.”

The shower floor is Corian and the hexagonal tiles were made by a small factory in Spain. (Maclean keeps his tile sourcing to himself.)
