The huge octagonal bath tiled with small handmade glazed peacock-green tiles and adjoining shower was designed for the master bedroom suite of an old restored olive mill converted by Sarah into a private house in a mountain village in Andalucia. The terracotta limewashed walls and Moorish arched mirrors create interesting reflections of more arches leading into the dressing room.
A Moorish influenced bathroom showing the large bath decorated with different sized green glazed tiles and the flooring using co-ordinating traditional Andaluz star-shaped green glazed tiles hand made for Sarah in La Linea and set into unglazed tiles to create a non-slip surface,
The octagonal brass inset basin and intricate camel-bone and metal mirror above it were sourced by Sarah in Tangiers and Asilah in Morocco to emphasise the Moorish feel of this bathroom.
This small bathroom with diagonally laid aqua - glazed wall tiles , ivory coloured limewashed walls and cream marble open shower and antiqued marble flooring give an impression of space and was designed by Sarah for a 'cortijo' farmhouse in Andalucia. The 'bulls-eye' round window floods the room with light and shows off the collection of Victorian silver-topped cut-glass scent bottles displayed on silver-gilt shell design shelves found by Sarah in an antique shop in America.
A small round handbasin for a cloakroom was set into a curved marble top specially made by the local marble works to Sarah's design and the builder followed the same curve in plastered masonry below it.
The guest shower room with built-in yellow marble handbasin was designed by Sarah for a country property in Andalucia. The yellow ochre stucco plasterwork of the shower walls and basin work surface was commissioned from a local polished plaster specialist. The blue and yellow geometric design cement floors were recuperated by Sarah from an old Spanish village house that was being demolished and create an interesting and practical flooring.
The strong yellow wall tiles with arabesque frieze were made in Seville and the lattice work cupboards under the basin made by a local carpenter to a typical Spanish design. The mirror and antique glass wall light were found by the owner of this mountain village house in an antique shop near Marbella.
