Armadale House 01 A unique Victorian residence restored by Jackson Clements Burrows

This incredible house is located in Melbourne, Australia, was renovated and designed by Jackson Clements Burrows and it is now on sale. The project was to restore and redesign an existing Victorian house so it will be more modern and unique. It required a complete refurbishment and two new extensions, which are now private zones for both parents and children.

Wooden bathtubs are crafted individually and can be custom designed, these are the main reasons people are starting to love them. Like all wooden pieces, the material plays an important part in the tub’s design and it is a good idea to choose a material and a color to go with the rest of your bathroom’s design but allows the tub to be the focal point.
