For me the bathroom is the most private of spaces within the house, it is not only a room for cleansing but also one for de-stressing. This is a room where you should create a sanctuary where you can leave your worries at the door and come out feeling rejuvenated and revived.
I am a big believer in the Japanese custom of bathing, the ceremony of cleansing followed by relaxation in a hot bathtub. Though whether you prefer leisurely baths or invigorating showers, your bathroom should be as luxurious as possible and should let you feel completely pampered.
I love bathrooms that are like temples, luxurious spaces of cool stone and soft lighting, totally calm and neutral spaces. Bathrooms are full of hard clean surfaces so you must find ways in which these can be softened. Good lighting is key here, as you will need easily dimmed mood lighting for you to be able to relax in your bath. An even easier way to promote softness is through using luxurious deep pile towels made from pure cotton. Not only is the soft piling wonderfully indulgent to both the eye and to the touch, it emphasises the luxurious nature of your bathroom as a whole.
