Keep your bathrooms bright and chirpy in the sense that your wall tiles and flooring should not be dark and somber. White is always elegant and can be enhanced with splashes of color in toweling, mirrors, rugs and shower accessories. Bathrooms should be a sanctuary for relaxation, and therefore should not be over cluttered with superfluous objects. Scented candles with soft music in the background is sure to take away the stresses of the day, as you soak your wary body in a luxurious foam bath.
You should also take into consideration whether or not you will be doing a lot of entertaining and having dinner parties, if this is the case it's a good idea to have an island stove top and a separate wall oven. The extra room will help your dinner parties go as planned.
Once you have your serenity room, you'll need to establish rituals for its use. This shouldn't be another 'should' in your life, but a soothing habit, kind of like settling into the easy chair after work with your slippers, the newspaper, and a glass of Gewurtztraminer. In other words, another ritual that reinforces the way you escape from the demands of your day, only a bit different, and a bit novel. Be the first in your neighborhood.
