There was no storage in the owners' bedroom, so their architects, ACQ (opens in new tab), designed this dressing room cube. The colour of the lacquered wood exterior was inspired by the owner's blue yoga bag.

7/8 Wardrobe

A classic cherrier chair sits beside a massive hydrotherapy bath which was specially shipped over from California. A dramatic Bisazza (opens in new tab) Endimione mural is reflected in the mirrored cupboard, which doubles the light and space in the bathroom.

The chair is from Twentytwentyone (opens in new tab), and the bath is from Hydrotone (opens in new tab).
