Sophie Burke Design adds a little whimsy to this pool change area.
This bathroom operates as a change room and shower for the outdoor pool—and that can mean a half-dozen kids dropping off wet towels and bathing suits on any given day—so designer Sophie Burke of Vancouver’s Sophie Burke Design selected sturdy materials for the space. Hard-wearing grey tile lines the floors, Caesarstone’s Rugged Concrete tops the bench, and vertical tiles on the walls can stand up to any wet items on the towel hooks.
Organic objects like the rattan baskets from Twenty One Tonnes and a Libeco towel from Bacci’s warm up a typically cool space like this pool change area.
Black accents throughout offer a fresh colour contrast, and the round fingerpulls on the cabinetry and curvy light fixture from Cedar and Moss bring a playful element. It’s designed to be kid-friendly—and to anticipate that not all kids will carefully put away their wet things. “At least mine wouldn’t!” laughs Burke.
