Turn your bath into a spa with design ideas from these relaxing rooms.
Deborah Whitlaw Llewellyn
Layered textures and materials give any space a rich look. In this bath, the architect combined reeded wormy oak cabinets and wide-plank wall paneling with square tumbled-stone floor tiles and small oyster matte mosaic tiles. Half-walls offer privacy but prevent the room from feeling cramped. Another neat idea: The freestanding tub is surrounded by a "moat" of smooth river rocks.
