The details of this bath, published in the October issue of Elle Decor, are fabulous. It starts with sculpture; the bathtub is set in front of an appropriately scaled dark wood fireplace original to the house.The mantle holds an assortment of personal objects and the painting above is not only interesting but a great size for the wall. Clearly, the space is large and the ceilings tall, always a great feature for a master bath. In this space, it is the combination of a grand hanging light, large scale pattern on the roman shade, wood floors and just the right furniture that make it so appealing. Finally, natural light adds ambient warmth and an invitation to relax. Not seen in this photo are highly decorative demi-lune tables for sinks and unusual sconces.
Discipline is required to achieve a result as complete and personal as this bath. A “needs” list must be compiled as well as an inspiration file. A willingness to scour markets for just the right vintage pieces add the fourth dimension: style.
