Modern timber vanity styling and design

To my eye, a bathroom just doesn’t look right unless there is a timber vanity. As a living material, timber creates a beautiful warmth that balances out the other materials such as mirror, ceramic and glass so often used in the space to create that vital sense of luxury. We where so excited to be sent these beautiful images of our Iluka vanity used in a bathroom created by interior designer and stylist Michelle Canny.

Modern bathroom design

We love how Michelle has used a modern colour palette of light and dark grey, black and white which really makes the timber vanity pop. This timeless colour palette is one that is on trend now but will also has that timelessness that ensures it will look great for many years to come. The use of black throughout the space also brings out the black characteristics of the recycled Messmate timber of the vanity.

Custom timber vanity

The beauty of a custom made vanity is that it will be created to your design. Michelle’s clients wanted a very functional combination of drawers and cupboards to ensure they could store everything that they needed to easily in the cabinet. Cupboards are great to store towels as well as larger toiletry items such as hairspray bottles. Drawers are fantastic to easily access all the vital items such as makeup, hairbrushes and hairdryer.

We asked Michelle about her inspiration for this gorgeous space "My clients wanted an en-suite bathroom that was both relaxing and contemporary to fit in with the modern interior style of their home. To create this look I chose the to make the timber vanity the feature and paired this with matte black fittings and fixtures, large format floor and wall tiles in contrasting light and dark tones and a free standing bath under the main window for the ultimate indulgence."
