Avocado bathrooms were a popular interiors-trend which originated from the 60’s and 70’s. For those too young to know that it was “a thing”; it was not uncommon to see bathrooms and the colour green associated en mass. The Avocado-green hue can be best described as a light yellowish green and was one of many colours that found its feet during the retro era. Interdisciplinary creatives, Boundary Space thought it was high time for a comeback and have created a fresh, modern spin on the Avocado bathroom below.
Boundary Space was founded in 2010 by qualified architects, Graeme Martinow and Thomas Furse-Roberts, they specialise in commissions in architecture, design, art and graphics. Their creative approach to design is best described by explaining the company name, Boundary Space, “they believe the most interesting and creative endeavours happen in the boundary-space between art, design, architecture and sculpture. They see no distinction between interiors and architecture and believe the two disciplines should work in sync”.
This bathroom was created for a client in the film industry who was wanting a unique looking bathroom. The team at Boundary Space wanted to create an obvious look of refined-glamour but not in a clichéd art deco sense. Instead, they workshopped their ideas around;
this out of the box design-technique led them to the amazing design we see below.
The palette has been modernised via bespoke lighting, chunky brushed brass taps and ironmongery and cool grey Carrara marble (all stockist – info can be viewed below). The soft grey coloured walls and joinery retreat, adding to the spacious feel of the bathroom whilst allowing the avocado-green features to be the star focus. The palette is calming and the photography-art has been chosen to compliment the design and add pops of colour. I adore the green finishes of the bath, floor and vanities; do you too?
