Private Zen: A Backyard Bathhouse 04.8.2014

BATH-6

Californians are known for their desire for privacy and here in Palm Springs, we aren’t any different. Small fortunes are spent to create backyard paradises and to subsequently construct huge walls, fences, or privacy hedges to block the world from looking in. Whether it be a lush garden, sparking pool, or fully-stocked koi pond, in essence, we are all looking for the perfect private zen space.

For Paul Kaplan Group Agent Kris Rain, personal zen means escape from the work-day world. It means escape from an always-on-the-go job. So whenever possible, Kris escapes to her private zen space: A custom built backyard bathhouse.

When Kris came across a vintage claw foot tub (an extreme rarity in the desert), she decided to put it to good use. She immediately called her contractor and began work on a detached bath conveniently located just steps outside her back door. Of course, the bath tub is the focal point of the room.

BATH-1

Lots of windows and a rustic feel make the tiny structure warm and comfortable. According to Kris, the best way to utilize the tub is to be surrounded by candles. “I created the bath house as a sanctuary where I can go to be nurtured and recharged, its a place to go to count my blessings. I always walk out feeling as if I have just been hugged,” Kris said.

If you have a personal space for private zen then we here at The Paul Kaplan Group would love to hear about it and maybe we could even share the idea on our blog. If you would like more info on how to create your own backyard bathhouse, then contact Kris Rain at The Paul Kaplan Group.

John has always loved to draw. Growing up, he loved Hanna Barbera cartoons, Harvey comics, and Disney animated films and those continue to influence him. Murasky said that another influence was the advertising of his childhood. Murasky’s artwork is available at select Palm Springs stores.

As the Murasky poster illustrates, every Thursday evening, Downtown Palm Springs transforms into the Palm Springs VillageFest. At the VillageFest, visitors experience a diverse array of artists, artisans, entertainers, and purveyors of fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, jewelry, snacks and sweets in addition to all the great shops, restaurants, clubs, and entertainment venues located along World Famous Palm Canyon Drive.
