ADD IN LIGHT
The original bathroom had an awkward floor
plan with a tiny tub, boring tile and outdated
fixtures. “We hated it,” says owner Git
Gustavsson. Now a deep soaker tub, chosen
after she tested over 20 freestanding models,
feels inviting in the bright, renovated space.
Other favourite elements include a custom steel
window, an Italian chandelier, a mid-century
Saarinen side table and a wall-mounted TV.
