air bathroom -- the Chamberlain Suite in the famed El
Questro homestead boasts a wrap-around veranda that
overlooks the red stone walls of the Chamberlain Gorge
below. A striking tub by Australian company Apaiser is
made from a stone composite in Snowdrift, an off-white
hue that includes crushed marble and mother-of-pearl
for a touch of lustre. Recycled blackbutt floorboards,
with their warm, yellow tones, are paired with blackbutt
veneer on the drawer and door fronts, while the walls
features 20mm slabs of marble. e marble has been
exfoliated to give a matte finish and reveals hues that echo
the subtle colours of the Kimberley ranges. is alluring
space was designed by Sydney-based Pike Withers.
