My favorite rooms to design in a home are bathrooms, and spas. I draw inspiration from many different sources. Here are projects that highlight some of the best examples of well designed bathrooms and spas.

Bath & Spa Intrigue - Photo 5 of 21 - The owners were passionately involved in every aspect of the design, and pushed the team to make choices they normally might not have, including using Western red cedar for the master bathroom countertop. The spa-like space features a soaking tub, tile from Statements Urban, an MTI sink, a custom mirror, and a Vola faucet.

Bath & Spa Intrigue - Photo 6 of 21 - The hotel's spa space is set right into the banks on the rushing Valldola. The turf roof seems like a contemporary conceit but in fact is a reference to ancient Scandinavian tradition of sod roofs.

Bath & Spa Intrigue - Photo 16 of 21 - Making our way to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this master suite bathroom is nestled within a mountain retreat that sits on five acres of private land. Slabs of Carrera marble line the space while the central window overlooks the Grand Teton national park. Placed at the edge of the bathroom is a 50-square-foot shower with steam capabilities.
