Design Inspiration: Arai Bathroom

When we were up in Michigan last weekend, we rented a house on VRBO, the “Up North Retreat” they called it. According to the listing, it was designed by Glenn Arai, who is apparently a well-known (at least locally) modernist architect from Northern Michigan. (Check out this other place he designed on Old Mission Peninsula – it’s really beautiful!)

It was definitely a welcome departure from the kitschy nautical and North Woods themed rentals, but my favorite part… the bathroom!

I LOVED the huge skylight! It’s kind of awesome to feel like you’re showering in nature—not in a naughty way, just in a refreshing way. Luckily the house is situated on a hillside with plenty of trees preventing the neighbors from having a full-body shot (or really any kind of a view).

The one thing I’d change? That carpet! Who puts carpet in a bathroom?!
