Whether you call it your sanctuary, retreat, oasis, or spa, the bath is unlike any other room in the house. It can be the most private or indulgent of spaces or a simple, public one in which guests need to feel comfortable.
Today’s bath is an expression of personal style and priorities, and the luxurious focal point of sophisticated interiors. As a result, creating the perfect bath has become an obsession for homeowners and designers. Yet, perhaps no room in the house requires as much forethought and planning as the bath.
The Perfect Bath
In her new book, The Perfect Bath, published this month by Rizzoli, Barbara Sallick, co-founder of Waterworks, a luxury brand of bath fittings, fixtures, furniture and accessories, explores the process of designing a bath in great and beautiful detail. She shares exquisite images of favorite and esteemed baths, and talks with top designers about their work.
Anne Grice Interiors is honored to be the only Colorado interior designer featured in the book. A luxurious master bath we designed in East Aspen is shown on page 113 in the Balance, Scale, and Proportion chapter. Our client wanted this space to blend with the environment, which led us to utilize natural materials and textural features accented with one-of-a-kind fixtures.
Here are some additional photos of the space that were not included in the book:
Creating Your Dream Bath
Fortunately, bathrooms have evolved over the centuries, and today we have more choices than ever before. Consequently, the abundance of options can make buying for and installing these spaces a daunting task. Sallick’s book explores the process of designing a dream bathroom that reflects one’s personal style. Beautiful images, step-by-step planning tips, practical how-to advice for homeowners, and insight from top designers and architects make it a must-have.
“Kitchens are all about the community, family and friends,” Sallick says. “The bathroom is a little more indulgent, especially the master bath. It’s all about you and relaxation and your favorite things and a place of privacy.”
