An Ashburn, Virginia, couple was looking to modernize their large but dark and poorly laid-out master bath. They hired Paula Grace Halewski, who was already redesigning their house, to imbue the space with better flow and a lighter, more sophisticated sensibility.
|In the middle of the floor, a massive tub with a wide surround got in the owners’ way.||A Victoria & Albert soaking tub is tucked off to one side, leaving the room’s center unobstructed but for an ottoman from the Kristin Drohan Collection.|
