Remembrance Project

A New England inspired bathroom renovation project by Coquo

Montreal couple Patrizia and Peter decided to undertake a complete bathroom renovation during the pandemic. Taking inspiration from spa-like bathrooms, their heart was set on a peaceful, soothing and neutral space. A soft tone-on-tone palette that would stand the test of time and blend in with the rest of the original features of their home. To simplify the project and its renovation, the couple kept as close as possible to the original layout and placement of plumbing fixtures. Since the bathroom is accessible from the master bedroom and can also be seen when going up the stairs, they opted for a simple and timeless design mixing different textures such as porcelain tiles with a delicate pattern and vertical shiplap for the walls.

The use of natural oak in the bathroom furniture blends in with the natural oak flooring in the rest of the house, therefore making the overall space feel harmonious and fluid.For the vanity, they envisioned furniture-like pieces made of solid wood. Being the lead designer for the modular kitchen furniture company Coquo, Patrizia, working in tandem with co-founder Brigitte, created the perfect bathroom furniture pieces. Consequently it was the birth, the launch of the collection appropriately named Balneo, meaning “ to bathe “ in latin. Making its debut in Patrizia and Peter's home, the collection of bathroom furniture adds a touch of warmth to their neutral palette and brings with it a cozy, old-world New England charm.
