House and Leisure Koski bathroom

The unique, unusual and interesting main bathroom of this beautiful holiday home in Thornybush close to the Kruger National Park has captured our hearts. Designed by multifaceted creative Jacques Erasmus, the main bathroom has been finished with bespoke steel shelves, stone tops, custom taps and a variety of textures. Bath salts with scents inspired by local flora fill the shelves, while an artwork by Andrew Putter from his African Hospitality series hangs in the middle, depicting European shipwreck survivor Lydia Logie.

We really love the openness of this spacious and sophisticated bathroom. It makes you feel as if you are stepping into your own serene sanctuary, but one with a quirky, characterful aesthetic that's emphasised by the fact that the furniture used is not typical of a bathroom. It's minimalistic in the sense that there isn't an excess of accessories except the identical glass jars lined up on the curated shelf, which add interest, warmth and a personal narrative. Erasmus says that the interior design was about more than decorating – 'It was about putting the house into context. We kept the interiors simple and understated. We've got so much going on texture- and layer-wise that little had to be done to enhance what was already there.'

Even though the pieces used in this bathroom are carefully sourced and some custom-made, we've found some alternatives that you can find on the HL Shop to create this look in your own home. Simply browse the products below, click on the links and get shopping!
