Creating a Blissful Bath
Four designer bathrooms—both large and small—show us how to infuse maximum style into these utilitarian spaces.
Douglas Weiss, of Douglas Weiss Interiors, took a cavernous master bath and turned it into a cozy sanctuary full of warmth and classic details.

Sleek, Chic and Stylish
This jewel box of a powder room is defined, says designer Alissa Portman, by its timeless elegance; the transcendent good looks could easily be at home in any era. At the same time there’s a soft modern touch that’s thoroughly in-the-now, thanks in part to textural wallpaper and a modern pendant light suspended from the soaring ceiling. And giving this space its distinctive personality? A “Roman Holiday”-era archival image of Audrey Hepburn, reproduced on canvas.

Dynamic, Dynamite and Disco-esque
Gleaming Mylar wallpaper and a backlit vanity mirror are individually show-stopping in this powder room. But together they form an elegant interplay, enhanced by shiny chrome fixtures and clean-lined ebony detailing in the neutral scheme. “I like that [this room] is unexpected and bold without being over the top,” says designer Jared Paul. “You can make a powder room memorable.”

Peaceful, Edgy and Transporting
Drawing on inspiration from two places close to her heart—Europe and California—Tish Mills designed this wellness center as a mix of the two styles, albeit with very clean lines. “I love that it is so unexpected and original at the same time,” says Mills. If you are observant, there is a creative thought in almost everything you see, whether it be color combinations in nature, textures, or unique uses for spaces and items. This room is a culmination of that process.”
