True blueResene Icebreaker was chosen for the bathroom walls

As part of the renovation of the White house, the main bathroom had a wall moved to increase the size of the room, one window removed and another enlarged. Ceiling and wall linings were removed and the Rimu tongue and groove flooring was lifted to allow for plumbing and electrical work. Once the floor had been re-laid and polyurethaned, the coving was put up and the fun began!

A new spa bath, toilet and shower were installed but Deanne couldn't find a vanity exactly like the one she'd drawn. Her husband, a builder, came to her rescue and created a custom made vanity for her. White ceramic tiles were chosen to go halfway up the walls and they were capped with a glass mosaic tile in silver. Being neutral this allows for the wall colour to be changed in years to come without having to change the tiles. Having collected so many 'beachy things' and blue being Deanne's favourite colour, Resene Icebreaker was chosen for the walls. A true blue, it looks wonderful under various lights and fabulous with the Rimu floor and white ceilings and trim.
