The bathroom, once a forgotten area of the home, is moving away from a purely functional role to becoming a space of retreat and wellbeing.
The bedroom is a place of shelter and pause, a private sanctuary for relaxing and romance.
Scent can play a part in a well designed bedroom to enhance our experience and can be employed to reflect its role as a restorative space.
