Small spaces like this powder room demand bold accents, which is why the springboard for Honey Collins’s design was a strongly geometric grasscloth Schu­macher paper in deep blue. Collins paired the statement walls with a clean-lined modern sink, classic sconces, and a large beveled mirror from Restoration Hardware. All of these classical motifs complement the room’s extraordinary fanlight.

Everything about this symmetrical his/hers master bath—a collaboration between LDA Architecture & Interiors and Weena & Spook—was designed to keep the views of the 97-acre Berkshires property front and center. Unadorned floor-to-ceiling windows were just the beginning: The back-to-back custom-designed vanity cleverly sits in the room’s center, its lightness emphasized by a cantilevered base and double-sided mirrored cabinet. The countertop, in ethereal white Thassos, is a single continuous surface that slips below the mirror, elegantly tying the two sides together. Details such as curbless showers, frameless-glass shower enclosures, and white pendant lights minimize shadows, drawing the eye instead to the lush greenery beyond.
