One of the perks of working for SA Home Owner is getting to see – and indulge in – a wide variety of exquisite homes on a daily basis. There are, however, a few that are truly special and stand out from the crowd. Over the next few weeks we’ll be bringing you a selection of “stand-out” rooms from the homes featured on the pages of our magazine. Here are some of our favourite bathrooms.

The opulent freestanding bath and matching Ovo basins were supplied by Sterlings. This is testimony to the exclusive products the company has been supplying for the past 23 years. Sterlings is a market leader in bathrooms and Italian kitchens.

The home owners knew what they were looking for wit this home: a cottage feel. “We had a rough idea of giving the home a French rural finishing, and employed a professional to work with the interior.”
