Bathing Beauty

Apparently there was a competition in the late 80s for the biggest bathtub.  The original owners of our house probably did a victory lap in this baby.  

This bathing beauty is literally under spotlights and takes up a sizable chunk of our 15' x 15' bathroom.  It is surrounded by white carpet which is always a smart design choice.

Perhaps in an effort to keep it from upstaging the tub, the shower was banished to the water closet.

Don't get me wrong.  I definitely appreciate the benefits of a good hot soak.  But, I am looking forward to downsizing the tub to this ...

Victoria & Albert's York Tub

It will be moved out of the center of the room, so the shower will get to come out of hiding.  Of course, it will still make a really nice focal point, and with a chandelier centered over it, it could be a real showstopper... I wonder if I could enter it in a contest... 


  1. wow! that is a big tub! i LOVE the new one! yay, you figured out how to load the pictures. You're doing great! you were my first blog stop this morning. Can't wait to see more! xo

  2. Can't wait to compare bathroom renovations. Still haven't heard from our "contractor", unclear whether he is really a contractor or just plays one but my husband says he is a real nice guy. Anyway, we took the wallpaper off and my friend seriously said the bathroom came out nice. Maybe the wallpaper was just that ugly?
