After a day of sunbathing or swimming in the pool, this guest bathroom becomes the perfect space to freshen up. A large vanity keeps essentials like towels and soap close, while a glass door opens to the shower.
A wall of Devonshire limestone encloses the garden, emulating the shape of a traditional Tansu chest. The treasure within is just as extraordinary, with sculpted pine trees, rare Japanese Maples and a hedge of weeping cherries enlivening the landscape.
During the day, the pavilion's metal roof offers relief from the sun's rays. As they sit on the wood floor below, the owners can dip their feet into the water and listen to the soft sounds of their environment.
Asian-Inspired Spa Bathroom With Rain Shower and Freestanding Tub
Designer Jennifer Gilmer wanted a large freestanding tub and a shower in her master bath, but lacked the room to put them side by side. A trip to Japan inspired her to combine the two in an open space — this arrangement is common there. The light-flooded modern bathroom, with black mosaic tiled floor and insets and tan subway tile walls, features a deep sink, ceiling-mounted rain shower and oval-shaped pedestal bathtub.
On the opposite side of the master bathroom, stones, wood and mosaic tiles continue the rich layering of textures. Vessel sinks leave enough countertop space to fit two in as well as a dressing table area.
Made from northern white-cedar and bamboo, this quiet pavilion beautifully complements its woodland surroundings. A small reflecting pond and lush vegetation all around ensure that the owners will want to sit and enjoy this space for hours.
Designer Elissa Russo creates this hallway focal point with a photograph in a burled wood frame to connect visually to the antique chest beneath. Alone, the photo would have been too small, floating in space above the heavy piece of furniture. But the trim and the carefully placed objects on the trunk create an eye-catching tableau.
A small courtyard separates the driveway from the garden, with a circular entry that exudes serenity. Stone paths guide visitors around various trees and plants, with rocks along the way for sitting and reflecting.
Large slabs of stone lead from the deck to a pavilion, which was designed to be a sanctuary where the homeowners can relax, recharge and focus their thoughts. This serene outdoor space was also intended to be a home and food source for various pollinators.
