Step Inside Jamie Chua’s Luxurious French-Inspired Bathrooms

Sweet Escape 

Jamie Chua enjoys her favourite daily rituals in her beautiful bathrooms, which are tailored by Carera Bathroom to match her taste for French sophistication and modern style 

With her love for the finer things in life, Jamie Chua only found it natural that her stately abode should embody her captivating lifestyle and make her feel good every day. 

Envisioning a home that melds her love of French design with her personality, the trendsetter and her partner, Terence Koh, worked alongside Type0 Architecture to realise this unique concept. “My brief was simple: a ‘Jamie’ home that is sustainable and exudes a quintessentially French sophistication and charm [by] blending modern aesthetics and convenience,” shares Chua.

As a connoisseur of luxury bath time rituals, Chua lavished attention on the design of all the bathrooms and powder rooms in her home; the Singaporean socialite particularly adores the indulgence of having a bubble bath everyday. She enlisted Carera Bathroom to bring her vision to life. Founded in 2009, the homegrown bathwares retailer carries reputable, high-end collections from Europe that incorporate cutting-edge technologies and design, backed by exemplary service. 

It is thus no secret why Carera Bathroom has become a trusted partner for many homeowners like Chua: “I only wanted the absolute best in terms of aesthetics and quality for my home, and that’s what I found at Carera with the line of bathroom products they carry.”

Drawn to the contemporary look and superior craftsmanship of Italian brand Gessi and Swiss brand Laufen, it is no wonder that the style maven chose to work alongside Carera Bathroom, which is the exclusive local distributor for both European brands. “Gessi and Laufen’s gorgeous bathroom products were a natural and seamless fit with my design plans,” shares Chua. 

Crafted to perfection, her master bathroom is the epitome of femininity. This relaxing zone is designed with Roman window blinds, blush-pink marble walls flown in from Italy, and arched frame-accented entryways to the shower and water closet. To complete the look of her spa- inspired master bathroom, Chua opted for the Gessi Anello line of fittings in gold hues, and Laufen wares alongside the Gessi Afilo shower system, which provides a built-in rainfall setting. The space also features the New Classic bathtub from Laufen, which is paired with the Gessi Venti20 mixer for a refined look.

“When I first visited the showroom featuring Gessi products, I was impressed by the classy
and beautiful aesthetics of the items there and immediately knew that I wanted them for my bathrooms and powder room,” she explains of her bathroom design process. “I also picked Laufen for my bathtub and water closet for their simple yet elegant designs.”

Her powder room and guest bathroom are equally chic, with their Parisian-style modern aesthetic and appliances from Gessi. The former is wrapped in Toile De Jouy wallpaper and has a show- stopping Gessi Goccia line in a copper finish. In contrast, the guest bathroom imparts a minimalist feel with a monochromatic palette with Gessi fittings and Laufen wares.
