The Empire tub is the focal point in this space. It reads as a piece of sculpture, filling the window bay. It is framed by the soft and simple curtains; the visual height of the ceiling is captured by the tall spare tree and the nearly transparent chandelier. There is no question that the space is enlivened by the patterned red rug. The rug is a bold statement with traditional overtones. It feels like just the right amount of decoration.
