Lonny's Most-Pinned Baths: Ben Watts

In his rambling weekend house in Montauk, New York, fashion photographer Ben Watts’s master bath is spare, airy, and efficient. The unfussy, less-is-more space—blessed with abundant natural light—confidently displays its design and organization for all to appreciate and use. What you see is what you get—and there’s much to love on view.

1. Areas within the open-plan space are delineated through modulations of material and color. The ceiling and walls of the walk-in dual rain shower are clad in cool white subway tile; the adjoining zone introduces a range of warm woods in the floor, open shelving, mirror frame, and rectangular strip on which the hooks are mounted.

2. Wicker baskets on open shelves provide neat and clearly laid-out storage for all bathroom needs, eliminating the necessity for a more furniture-like vanity or medicine cabinet. Openness and visibility are hallmarks here, also evident in the choice of that row of hooks for towels and clothing.

3. The striped cotton rug and blue water glasses refresh the otherwise restrained color palette, giving it a pleasing lift and infusing the room with more personality.

If you’re a fan of minimalism and there’s a bathroom renovation in your future, this much-pinned image presents a perfect primer on crafting an uncluttered, well-organized space.
