While I’m usually not a minimalist, the gloomy weather and the looming holiday frenzy have made me long for calm, light-filled spaces like the incredible black bathroom I photographed this week for an upcoming house tour. If there is such a thing as vicarious rest & relaxation, staring at these monochromatic, simply adorned rooms would be it.
