Steal This Look: An Open-Air Concrete Bath


Steal This Look: An Open-Air Concrete Bath

July 12, 2017

Julie recently discovered a Mumbai-area house perched on a stream; the owners cross a bridge to reach the master bedroom and bath. We instantly fell for Architecture Brio’s minimal concrete bath that lives both indoors and out. Here, we’ve sourced the elements to recreate the look:

Furnishings & Accessories

towel rack oak Ekoline from Homebits

Above: For the free-standing towel rack, we like the Ekoline Free Standing Wooden Towel Rail in oak; £110.40 from Homebits UK. In the US, try the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Towel Rack Kit; it’s made in the US of solid maple and available from Amazon for $95.

square basket rope handle Tyler Crate & Barrel

Above: For the basket to hold lines, we found the Tyler Square Basket With Rope Handle  from Crate & Barrel; $89.95.

bath towels peshtamel

Above: Nandina Organics is a good source to find a similar bath towel. A 39-by-71-inch Peshtemal Striped hand-loomed organic cotton towel is $48.
