The bathroom can be the most neglected space in the house, evoking feelings of guilt, shame or plain fear. We often respond to these triggered emotions by over sanitizing this space; making it cold, sterile, bare, silenced, desacralized. Our dwellings seem to hide the bathroom or seek to subdue its design as we disconnect from body and soul.
A sacred space of flow
The bathroom is one of the most feminine, transformative, imaginative, healing and surreal spaces in the home where we can slow down. It is in the sacred space of the bathroom where we come in close contact with our naked selves, the wild natural processes of our bodies, and the sacred element of water that cleanses and restores our souls. We come in depleted, exhausted, stressed out and/or disconnected and emerge rejuvenated, renewed, reborn. This is then a call to celebrate the bathroom as a a place of creative flow, transformation, and self-care for our sensual, spiritual selves.
We can soften our bathroom space to embrace spaciousness, light, color, views, art, nature and symbols that relax, soothe, and inspire. Whether you are designing a bathroom from scratch, renovating one, clutter clearing, or simply making more subtle adjustments, here are some examples of inspirational bathrooms that embrace nature & the owner’s unique aesthetic. I encourage you to find your own. Infuse life into your bathroom: from sterile to fertile.

Vibrating to the rhythm of a sacred land, I arrived home. Shaken into the space of my heart until I could see my whole life shining through the prism of love. I now understand the meaning of these words: In search of my mother’s garden. And my grandmother’s and so on… a labor of love….
There is a full moon rising and blessing us with her moonlight. The full moon invites us to release all that dims our light, all that holds us back in our spaces and heart. I am excited to share this clutter clearing ritual as spiritual practice. A feminine approach to self & space renewal. Why now? We are at a pivotal moment in history. Unconscious ways of inhabiting the earth feel like heavy weight on our hearts and shoulders.
Unfurling this blood taboo. Menarche, our first blood is an initiation into womanhood, a rite of passage lost to modern culture. I realize that woman’s blood is still taboo: uncomfortable to many, including women.We have disengaged from the beauty of our bodies and the processes that run through us. What was once powerful is now seen as a source of shame.
