The Sensual Bathroom: Create a Healthy, Relaxing Retreat

You don’t have to spend a fortune to create a delicious, decadent room that goes way beyond bathing.



Organic, unbleached bath sheets by Indigenous Design (650-568-7360, www.indigenousdesign.com) and naturally dyed Indika towels (866-446-3452, www.indikahome.com) are soft, absorbent—and healthy. This rustic wood bench brings an earthy element into the bath.
In this sensual bathroom at Gold Lake Resort in Colorado, slate and stone connect bathers with the earth and evoke a warm, nurturing feeling.

Amate bark lantern beeswax candles from Inara (888-688-7565, www.inaraorganic.com) create a mood of primitive simplicity, bringing a soft glow and delicious scent into the bathroom.
