Here's a rustic bath indeed, but imbued with a keen sense of the dramatic. The timber is monumental—no wimpy 5-inch planks for this design. A conventional ceramic sink has no place in such an elemental space, so the spilt-rock basin has been called into the picture, making yet another style comeback. The faucet set, hefty and refined, pulls the room back from the brink of theme-design.
