Welcome to the Bathroom of Your Dreams.

It’s got ocean views and a sunken tub with its very own fireplace.


When imagining the elements of your dream home, you might mentally design a roomy closet, a chef-caliber kitchen, or an expansive pool. But the ultimate luxury just may be a well-appointed bathroom made for relaxation. Take a look inside this incredible bath, featured in the June 2015 issue of House Beautiful, and you too will start fantasizing about sunken tubs and cozy fireplaces.

“Imagine lying in the bath with the flames flickering and the sun setting over the Pacific,” says Ohara Davies-Gaetano, who decorated this house in Dana Point, California. “What could be more relaxing?” The arched window and the view were so magnificent that she didn’t want to put a big white porcelain tub in front of it. Instead, she designed a sunken bath made from slabs of Crema Marfil marble. “It practically disappears, and that makes the room feel more open.”


Everything from the chalky plaster walls to the mosaic of travertine and white marble chips on the floor is pale and creamy, with sea-green and gray undertones that are brought out in the custom-painted finish on the vanity. That cohesive harmony carries through to the his-and-hers sinks and counters, which were fabricated from the same marble as the tub. Sconces found in France and made of antiqued mirror framed by carved wood are mounted on the larger mirror, like jewelry. “It’s such a romantic, inviting room,” says Davies-Gaetano. “When the clients moved in, the wife and her girlfriends just climbed into the dry tub with their glasses of Champagne to enjoy it!”
