Ensuite Dreams: Ancerl Studio’s Ode to Forest Bathing

With floor-to-ceiling windows, this master bathroom plays up its connection to the urban canopy

In this utterly romantic ensuite by Ancerl Studio, a pitched ceiling slopes upward to meet the star of the show: nearly four glorious square metres of floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall rectangular pane glass. Evocative of a historic urban loft, heated marble flooring completes the drama with contrasting, branch-like veins. These bear a likeness to the maples just beyond the glass, which add vibrant bursts of colour to this monochromatic sanctuary in the summer and fall.

Purple jade marble from Creekside Tile covers the floor, while windows from KingShore stretch floor to ceiling in this lofty space.

When pampering is in session, newly added black blinds, which affix to the casing, partially cover the windows, giving complete privacy without obscuring the treeline. Sponges, salts and the perfect read are all within reach from inside a freestanding Corian tub outfitted with ample shelving. Matte white ceramic subway tiling in the shower area adds a handmade touch, complementing the rural and vintage accents found throughout this city-chic home.
