How to style your powder room

Your powder room may be small, but it is possibly the best place to showcase your home's signature style. In reality, most people that visit your home will enter your powder room at some stage. 

So here are my my top tips on how to style it!

Beautiful hand soap and hand cream

Is there anything more unappealing than a grotty, old bar of soap. Opt for a beautiful, matching hand soap and cream set to delight your guests. This is not only neat but also feels somewhat luxurious. 

Don't forget to consider how the soaps will look in the powder room. A lemongrass and coconut handsoap might smell absolutely delicious, but how will that bright yellow and brown bottle go with the finishes in your bathroom?


Hand towels

I would advise either opting for gorgeous linen-like thin cloth or something really fluffy and cozy. What you prefer is up to your personal preference. Why not go for a bold print to really bring some life and character into the space.

Plants Plants Plants

Bring a small indoor plant or even some freshly cut flowers to the powder room to make it feel extra lively and homely. If you are bringing a plant in make sure it is exposed to the sunlight it needs. This will vary depending on the type of plant you choose.

Candles

Light it up, baby!

All about the tray

Put your candles or soaps on a small tray to add an extra dimension and layers to the space. I personally love the brass, Moroccan look however this will depend on the style of your home. I have seen chic perspex, mirrored trays which look fab in a really modern home!

Less is more

Powder rooms are conventionally small. DO NOT OVERCLUTTER the small surface area that exists. We don't need to see every flavour of soap and hand-cream you own. Choose one and keep it simple. Less is certainly more!

Richmond house tour: GABBE & Tilesofezra are making waves on EST with paired-back simplicity

It still feels surreal every time a project of mine is featured in a magazine or on a show. Today I’m feeling incredibly lucky and honoured to have again had my work featured in EST magazine - this time a renovated home in Richmond.

This interior features two of my passions, GABBE design as well as some of my magnificent tiles from Tilesofezra. This project was heaps of fun and by using a paired-back approach, I was able to let the home’s true essence and character shine through. I am totally obsessed with the end result and I feel so humbled that the incredible EST (I am independent and in no way asked to promote EST, I truly love and respect the publication) have acknowledged the magical allure of the home.

THIS WEEK WE ARE AT THE MAGNIFICENT

——————————————————

H O T E L   D O N   P E P E

This week we take a look at Hotel Don Pepe located in Santa Marta, Colombia.

Santa Marta is South America’s oldest city and has the historical architecture to show for it. This hotel is heritage listed, which allows it to showcase the original brickwork and archways,

that are still intact. These elements have been reclaimed to enhance their relevance for today.

Hotel Don Pepe is made up of both original brickwork and tiles, as well as modern materials that make sure it stays true to the city’s colonial heritage.

CLICK HERE and watch the video below to see more from Hotel Don Pepe:

Georgia’s favourite design elements at Hotel Don Pepe- White, white and more white. What brings the different textured elements together are the tonal whites that cover many aspects from the travertine floors to the white painted walls, and to the  white washed timbers. The white keeps the space looking fresh and unique, and when juxtaposed to the original brick the space looks amazing.

Bring a piece of Hotel Don Pepe to your home in the following ways:

1. Plaster your walls with a rippling effect and paint them white. The texture keeps it interesting, and you can never go wrong with a classic white coat of paint.
2. Expose the lintels above your doorways. Lintels or archways can be what gives a space its own individual identity, so show them off! Paint or add a white wash to the surrounding timber to keep the the colour scheme consistent.
3. Use indoor plants such as palm trees to bring in some colour and help the space look lived in. Plants always help a home look homely.

4. Tilesofezra have a fabulous in stock floor tile range, create interest intrigue and an exotic result via floor tiles!

Magnificent Melbourne home by Georgia featured on EST

It’s not every day that one’s work gets featured on one of the best design platforms in the business – EST magazine. I adore EST! It epitomizes stunning, contemporary, cutting-edge design and has always been a major source of inspiration to me.

I feel so fortunate to have had my design on this Melbourne home showcased. What’s even more special is that I had the opportunity to incorporate my gorgeous, mosaic tiles from my side project Tilesofezra (available at www.tilesofezra.com) into this project. 

Be sure to take a look at this space that truly embodies what we love at both GABBE design as well as Tilesofezra!

Georgia Ezra featured by Caesarstone!

What an exciting month! I am ecstatic to have been featured on the Caesarstone website as one of their celebrated designers!

Before I go any further, I would just like to state that I am fiercely independent and not endorsed by any brand or company to promote their products. In saying this, the pinnacle of my excitement for this feature stems from my long-lasting love affair with Caesarstone. For me and the resources I use when designing a space, settling for second best is not an option (and this is partly why I took matters into my own hands and founded Tilesofezra!) It is absolutely imperative to use quality products when designing interiors that enlighten and inspire – and in my opinion, Caesarstone delivers on this exact aspect.

This is why I felt it was necessary to write this post ... As a designer who knows how overwhelming it is when selecting finishes and materials for a home renovation, I feel it is my duty to educate, inspire and share my favourite contacts and leads with all of you. Caesarstone is a great company with a fantastic product, however as you follow me over the next few months, I will be opening up the gates to many more of the brands I like to use in my interior selections and designs.

I have found so many different ways to incorporate Caesarstone in both residential and commercial projects I have worked on - it's incredible how the product looks different and unique every time. Another reason I love utilising this product is because it is both durable, aesthetically beautiful and easy to maintain. What more could I look for in a product?!
