This new master bath has sunlight, views, and easy access to the backyard.
Dan Cox and Casey Blanchard’s new home features a sophisticated master bath that’s clean, fresh, and uncluttered. In addition, it balances the elements that were most important to Dan and Casey. With views of the pool and the Adirondack Mountains to the south, and of Vermont’s third-highest mountain, Camel’s Hump, to the east, the bath has a solid connection to the outdoors and is filled with natural light. Casey, an artist, brought together the colors, textures, and decor that make this room special, while allowing the main attraction to be what lies outside. (And for those times when a view isn’t enough, the bath has an exterior door with an outdoor shower just outside.) As a collaboration involving Casey and her architect friend Jim Sanford, the team at Leach Construction, and my partner Ben Bush and me, it’s hard to say who designed this master bath. Yet given the magnificent landscape around the home, I’d say the bath was designed just as it should have been.
