The world would be a happier place if relaxation weren't so hard to come by. To add some calm at home, the bath is a great starting point. For inspiration, here are five of our favorite spa-style baths. Note that natural materials like wood and stone predominate, as do soothing colors (think shades of white and ivory). Above: This compact bathroom by DeForest Architects is reminiscent of a sauna, complete with wood wall paneling and bench. The tub is perfectly positioned to take in the water views out the window. Above: Architect Celeste Robbins of Robbins Architecture  near Chicago makes use of traditional green frosted glass tile in a nontraditional shape. Her client wanted a roomy bathroom, so she combined an underutilized dressing room with the existing master bath and inserted a shower with clear glass doors. Above: Architect John DeForest , a master of the spa bath, uses frosted glass, outsized white tiles, and a George Nelson wooden bench. Above: Winner of the  Best Professionally Designed Bath Space  in the Remodelista Considered Design Awards, this design by Chambers + Chambers Architects  features an elevated Japanese soaking tub in a bed of polished river rocks. Above: Architect Mary Ann Schicketanz updated the cramped master bath in a midcentury house. It features an open shower and crisply transparent glass tiles that give the illusion of a larger space.
