I remember watching the tv show, 9 by Design a few years ago where designer, Cortney Novogratz created hotel rooms where a stand alone tub became a central design element of the bedroom, without door or separation. I always loved the idea and it's cool to see it catching on in residential homes.
Cozy, dimly-lit bedrooms are so inviting, so adding a clawfoot or stand alone tub can only enhance the relaxed vibe. Think I need to do this someday....
...or maybe this. Even better.
