For a long time, I shuddered at the thought of a bath in the bedroom. It conjured up images of an over-pouffed B & B with a tub stuck at the end of a bed. I am not sure where this image came from, but the recent spate of well designed bedrooms with tub on full display has me rethinking. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite finds:
