As I walked through the Domayne Alexandria entrance, I was greeted by the sight of a gorgeous bath tub adorned with the iconic image of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It was clear that the tone of the day was all about luxury bathed in beauty.
Upon making my way to the Victoria + Albert gallery – a one-of-a-kind, designed and executed by Elie Habib (Architect and Head of Domayne Bathrooms) and Michael Swyny (Sales Manager of Luxe By Design) – I was mesmerised by the exquisite elegance of the Victoria + Albert baths. My attention was captured by the sensuous shapes, enticing curves, smooth surfaces and impeccable designs on display.
We mingled with industry pundits passionate about bathroom design and renovation who believe that even though the kitchen may be the heart of the home, the bathroom is definitely the soul. It’s a private place where you can recharge your batteries and refresh your mind as you wash away the sleep from your eyes in the morning before tackling the day. It’s also a sanctuary to cleanse your being every night in peace as you unwind and relax.
We were also treated to a traditional English High Tea and deliciously spoilt for choice with classic scones, melt-in-your-mouth pastries and fabulous French macaroons. Sipping perfectly brewed tea from a fine china teacup, I couldn’t help but wonder: why limit yourself to breakfast in bed when you could have breakfast in your bubble bath?
Below are some candid snaps capturing the excitement of the day.
Here’s what impressed guest had to say about the gallery:
“It’s wonderful to be able to see and feel the Victoria + Albert collection in the one space. I’ve always been a huge fan of their baths and I think the latest offerings are wonderful. I am particularly drawn to the Cabrits bath. I think its design and ergonomics are so clever. I also found myself drawn to the new colour finishes. The pale blue is my pick.” – Sarah Pickette, Features Editor for House & Garden.
“I personally was most impressed with Luxe by Design’s effort to inform their clients on the day of their products’ capabilities. Freestanding bath tubs are a luxury today, and now regularly take centre stage in a home. In this busy day and age, we can forget that we need a space to unwind and relax as I was reminded by Anita at Luxe by design. The Victoria + Albert gallery in the Domayne showroom showcases a wide variety of paint finishes, hyrdrographic printing, stencils and patterns, foiling detail, etching and custom artwork capabilities, so you can see the prestige and uniqueness you can achieve and create in your own home. Why wouldn’t you want to be brave with your freestanding bath and create a bathroom with edge and sophistication?!” – Alexandra Hackett from Darren Palmer
Upon viewing the lovely Victoria + Albert bath gallery, I couldn’t help but feel that the camera lens alone doesn’t quite capture the perfection of these bathroom beauties – you really do have to view them in person to believe it. So get down to Domayne Alexandria today and see the Victoria + Albert gallery for yourself.
