Last week's issue of New York Magazine
featured their Home Design Fall package
. They looked at a few before and after gut renovations, including this master bathroom in Prospect Heights Brooklyn. We were a little confused by the choice of additions.
Architect Elizabeth Roberts opened up the second floor of a late-nineteenth-century brownstone to feature not only a large bathing area, but a home office in the corner. Yup, that on the left is a desk with a printer, meant to let you get some work one in between, um, dips in the large bath tub.
We don't know about you, but the least relaxing thing to look at while soaking in a calming bath is a printer and all that it represents in terms of work, deadlines, and a never-ending to-do list.
