I recently shared some of our plans for the bathroom at the A-frame and while the work is underway, I wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at some of the inspiration behind the soon to be finished space. First, I wanted to make the A-frame our ultimate getaway from the city. I want to be able to relax and unwind, and leave the noise of Los Angeles in Los Angeles. So when it came to designing the bathroom, even though it is small, I wanted it to feel like a spa-like retreat. I didn’t have to look far for inspiration, the desert just outside the cabin is so beautiful with its soft sandy tones and then when Rupert and I took our trip to Amangiri, my mind was blown and I wanted a tiny slice of it in our space. Above is a photo of me outside the spa at Amangiri, which is THE most luxurious place I have ever been. The architecture is built to blend in with the desert landscape and the use of clean lines and natural materials spoke right to my heart (surprise, surprise).
When it came time to build upon all of that inspiration into our bathroom I visited Kohler’s super inspiring design destination IDEAS to bring the spa to us so on our visits to the A-frame, I can easily sneak in a little “me time”.
And by me time, I mean “Rupert take Archie for a walk and don’t come back for at least an hour, I have a sound-bath to attend to”. ha! We will see how that goes but let’s hope it works because I am getting what they call a VibrAcoustic Hydrotherapy bathtub. It plays music above and below the waterline sending sound waves throughout your body. Kohler worked with a sound therapist to create a few unique pre-set compositions for the VibrAcoustic to promote deep relaxation but it can also play your own music from your iphone via bluetooth. So, not only will my bathroom look like a spa but it will sound and feel like one too!
Here is the moodboard I put together for client me, myself and I. Soft tones, straight lines and raw materials like natural wood, concrete, a little greenery, and stone create a soothing environment that gets me completely psyched to bring this to life. And, while to me, the tub is the spa-like pièce de résistance… the beautiful faucets, the modern sink, and the handmade tile all help set the tone. Finally, the intelligent toilet, that I went on and on about (here), creates an overall sense of cleanliness and a feeling of wellness which chalks this space up to be one pimped out bathroom.
