2/7 Double Lowther vanity basin from Drummonds

“When I wish to elevate a bathroom design from ordinary to extraordinary, I look to British supplier Drummonds,” says Pooley. “Their fittings and sanitaryware have a classic feel and the detailing and finishes evoke an old-world glamour.”

5/7 Bespoke bar cabinet from Katharine Pooley

The designer’s namesake furnishings brand also offers customised pieces, such as this bar cabinet. “This geometric straw marquetry and bronze bespoke bar we created last year is beautifully detailed; it inspires conversation and admiration in equal measure,” says Pooley.

6/7 Carlsbad cabinet, from Atelier Viollet

The designer also admires the workmanship on this exquisite piece from the French maker Atelier Viollett. “Gypsum, also known as selenite, has a wonderful eye-catching crystalline beauty,” explains Pooley. “Like rock crystal, I often use this finish to add a unique 'wow' piece to a special interior. This gypsum cabinet is beautifully made and can be constructed to bespoke dimensions to fit any space.”

7/7 Hardware from Nanz

As every meticulous interior designer would know, the tiniest detail matter—ranging from the hardware selection to other personalised elements that help create a truly luxurious home. "Upgrading your door knobs and joinery will elevate the entire interior,” says Pooley. “A favourite supplier for 2021 is the American brand Nanz, who have a fabulous range of finishes and designs. I particularly like their bronze and lacquered brass finishes.”
