5. Skylight bathroomArchitecture BRIO makes the most of Alibaug’s open green landscape in this weekend home. With a stream running through the house, it is only natural that this holiday retreat takes advantage of the views and fresh air. To give the space a real outdoor and earthy sense, an open skylight and a pebble floor has been incorporated Bathing out in the open – you can’t get closer than that to nature.
Opt in for a ‘natural’ lookIf plants are not your thing, then there may be other ways of bringing in natural materials. Although wooden surfaces evoke the feeling of peace and warmth, it isn’t ideal in damp spaces. However, thanks to technology faux wood tiles are so realistic, it is near impossible to tell the difference. But if you still want the real thing, introducing stone surfaces, or pebbles can also emulate the spa decor. An added bonus, pebbles on the floor in the bath can give your feet an amazing massage while you shower.
