By Sophie Piesse
In our early design meetings, most clients bring images of spaces that they love to help inspire me; a binder full of lights, windows, fixtures, and hardware is the norm. Cate and Dave, who were looking for a whole-house redesign but wanted to begin with their master bedroom, were no different. Instead of a binder, though, they came with only a single photo of a Japanese hinoki soaking tub. it was this tub, they felt, that should drive the entire master bathroom redesign.
They wanted to embrace the total experience that the tub would create: deep relaxation after a long workday and commute. They wanted a functional bathroom that was well-planned, but they also wanted it to be a unique space, something that would reflect who they are.
