5 Favorites: Bathroom as Garden

Julie Carlson March 20, 2013

With spring officially under way as of today, we can’t think about anything except gardens—indoors as well as out. Why not in the bathroom, where the humidity level is conducive to all sorts of greenery? Here are a few of our favorite garden-like bathrooms:

Above: A bath designed by Minneapolis firm Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle.

Above: In a garden penthouse on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, peace lily, peperomia, and prayer plant climb up the master bath’s teak vanity and onto the lavastone walls, creating a curtain of verdant, air-purifying foliage. For more, see Bath: Green Room.
