These photos were in the May issue of World of Interiors. I am sure many of you saw and admired this bath. There are so many incredible details that I would be remiss not to share my observations of this space.

In 2010 Peter Sallick wrote a guest post for TPB about his love affair with his outdoor shower. As long as the temperature was above freezing, he headed outdoors every morning, rain or shine, to experience the simplicity of showering in an outdoor environment surrounded by hydrangeas, tall grasses and a big buddleia. He enjoyed the evolving foliage of the mature plants, the quiet of the early morning and the opportunity to be alone.

Frederic Edwin Church, the famed Hudson River School artist, designed, lived and worked at Olana, a house he created for his family around 1870. His house is considered a three-dimensional work of art–a complete integration of architecture and landscape design that he considered fine art. The 126-acre property in Columbia County, New York, has incredible views of the Taconic Hills and Hudson Valley including the venerable Hudson River.
