Wellness, as an interior design trend, has been on the rise: more and more, people want their homes to feel like an oasis of domestic calm, or a spa-like sanctuary. “Homeowners are increasingly searching for designs and products that will promote good health and an overall sense of well-being,” a recent report from the American Society of Interior Designers found, noting an increased interest in “places where they can relax and restore from the increased stresses of everyday life.”

So Barbara Sallick’s new book with Rizzoli, The Ultimate Bath, comes at an opportune time within the interiors zeitgeist. A chronicle of luxuriously elegant sinks, tubs, showers, mirrors, and more, it’s an ode to the most private room in one’s house—and proves that the relative seclusion of the bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t be original when it comes to design.

There’s a gilded powder room by Ken Fulk, a marble sink set upon a Gucci Heron wallpaper, and bathtubs with views of desert cacti. “There is a difference—a notable one—between a bath that fulfills all of your basic needs and one that provides a heightened, indelible experience,” Sallick, the co-founder of Waterworks, writes. “Elevating the everyday on this level asks for nothing short of another way of seeing.”
