About This Book

A chic, polished guide to creating your dream bathroom, including engaging interviews with top designers and practical advice for homeowners. Whether you call it your sanctuary, retreat, oasis, or spa, the bath is unlike any other room in the house. It can be the most private and indulgent of spaces or a simple, public one in which guests need to feel comfortable. Today’s bath is an expression of personal style and priorities and the luxurious focal point of sophisticated interiors. Creating the perfect bath has become an obsession for homeowners and designers. Yet perhaps no room in the house requires as much forethought and planning as the bath. In The Perfect Bath, Barbara Sallick explores the process of designing a bathroom in great detail and with beautiful images. She shares exquisite, favorite, and esteemed baths, talks with top designers—including Suzanne Lovell, Pamela Shamshiri, Thomas O’Brien, Lee Mindel, Gil Schafer, Tim Clarke, and Steven Gambrel—about their work, and offers important, how-to advice for homeowners. Combining evocative, informative photography with an authoritative, engaging narrative, The Perfect Bath will be an essential, lasting resource.
