It can be said with certainty that travel is rejuvenating and seriously good for our souls. Whether you are an adventure seeker or prefer more of a laid-back vacation, unplugging and getting away for a little does wonders for our mental health and wellness. But, life happens and sometimes it is simply impossible to get away. So how does one recharge when sneaking away just is not an option?
I started to reflect on this very idea after I happened upon this quote:
“Some people look for a beautiful place. Others make a place beautiful.”
– Hazrat Inayat Khan
It makes sense that this quote would sit with me as it encompasses the essence of what I do – design highly personalized spaces I create spaces that rival a lavish getaway without having to get away.
For me, I believe in creating a space within your home that allows you to disconnect and provides an escape from the pressures of life. One of my very favorite spaces to design is a master bath retreat– a bathroom staycation. This is entirely customizable to your vision and doable whether you are designing from the ground up or embarking on a remodel. So, why need to look for a beautiful place when you have one waiting for you right around the corner?
The Master Bath
The focal point in the Bathroom Staycation is this luxurious soaking tub is perfect for indulging your senses and letting stress melt away. Encapsulated by three large windows, the natural light shines through and welcomes the outdoors inside. Adding lush potted plants or lavender for added aromatherapy further embraces the best nature has to offer.
As the star of the show, this soaker has it all. Its depth is perfect for immersing your entire body in soothing warm water or relaxing bubble bath. The faucet and shower wand duo allow you to wash your hair without having to immerse it in soaking water. It is a small detail usually overlooked, but every homeowner is always grateful for the feature in hindsight. As a bonus, the wand also comes in handy when cleaning and rinsing, making it a no fuss chore.
