Steal This Look: A Masculine Beach House Bathroom


Steal This Look: A Masculine Beach House Bathroom

August 12, 2014

Born in London, raised in Australia, and now based in Manhattan, fashion photographer Ben Watts (brother of actress Naomi Watts) escapes the city to a shingled house in Montauk. The setup, which we spotted in Lonny Magazine, overlooks the ocean and has an overall laid-back vibe that we can’t help but attribute to Watts’s Aussie background. The master bath is especially appealing; masculine, airy, and bright, it has an easy look we’d like to replicate. Here are some of the elements.

Above: The sun-filled room features a peaked ceiling with exposed beams. The walk-in shower has dual rainfall showerheads and is clad in classic subway tile. The marble-topped double vanity is paired with traditional faucets and offers open shelving–the space stays clutter-free thanks to baskets and wall hooks. Photograph by Ball & Albanese for Lonny Magazine
