Zen is a Japanese school of Buddhism that aims for a state of enlightenment through meditation and wisdom. Many try to apply Zen principles within their lifestyle, as well as in their design scheme, to create a more soothing environment overall. In this elegant master bathroom, designer Gayle Wainwright of Chez Vous Interiors used calm, neutral hues, simple furnishings, natural materials and crisp, clean lines to create a balanced and harmonious space. \"Each detail was chosen carefully: the patina on the life-sized Buddha, as well as the color and shape of the plants. All elements add depth to this space,\" she says.
