Rub a Dub Dub
One of my favorite ways to relax is reading a book in the tub. When we built this house I begged, pleaded and offered to sell my left kidney politely requested one thing, a big ole pedestal soaking tub. But eek! there is definitely a price hike involved. So in the spirit of compromise, I gave up having a tiled shower (we went with a fiberglass one) and we laid all the tile in the bathroom ourselves. We crunched the numbers and fit the tub in the budget (YAY)!
Isn’t she a beaut? So worth every minute tiling this floor while 5 months pregnant!
Speaking of which, this hex tile is so fun and relatively easy to lay, it comes in big square sheets. Grouting all those little lines is the only thing that is a pain.
The blah shower I covered up with a pretty Pottery Barn shower curtain.And oops if you look close, you can see the huge hole in the wall that I was trying to hide with my towels. Let’s just say my shelves are now hung with sinkers and I have recovered from the middle of the night heart attack I suffered when these suckers fell down!
Speaking of counter tops, remember how I wanted marble in the kitchen? (check out our kitchen here)
The hallway leading from the master to the bath.
Now if I could just have a few minutes to soak in peace without my little muchkins banging on the door begging to “go swimming in the pool” too :)
Hope you have a relaxing place in your house to recharge!

What a dreamy bathroom! I love everything about it – gorgeous tub and a gorgeous view!!
Wow, What a beautiful bathroom and love the tub! Kelly, The view is amazing too.
I have been wanting a tub like that for quite some time. How pretty and I love your view. I would just soak and look out the window. Thanks for joining Wow.
I had to have a claw foot tub in my house as well, and was thrilled to find a ‘cheaper’ one at Vintage Tubs and Baths in their seconds [or something like that. There’s supposed to be something wrong with the tub I got but danged if I can find it 3 years later… maybe it was the ‘made in China’ tag?] Anyway, love my tub and got it for half what they normally sell for.
There’s nothing like a good soak, especially after 6 days of no power like we’ve had here in NY! Enjoy yours!
Wow!! You have an AMAZING bathroom and the rest of the house is just as gorgeous! I’ve really enjoyed touring around your blog! Have a great weekend!
Your newest follower, Jenn :)
This is just over the top gorgeous – an absolute dream bathroom – and that view?
Speechless ( which is saying a lot coming from me )
I have bathroom envy now ( a bad bad case of it )
WOW! This bathroom is just beautiful. I do not know how you get anything done with that big tub and that view! I love that you got what you wanted! That freestanding tub is amazing and so worth it since you have the space! The colours are serene and I bet the enver changing view is amazing. Great post!
The view from the tub is amazing!

How could any of this be better stated? It condtu’l.
Oh that is a pretty bathroom and that tub…WOW! I don’t blame you for making the trade off. Although I would have been pressed to tile a floor at five months pregnant, but that’s a different story LOL. Thanks for stopping by.
