A practical makeover: The before
When she finally got around to transforming her only upstairs bathroom into the sophisticated and relaxing oasis she’d pined for, Virginia knew just who to call on for help: good friend and Style at Home contributing design editor Samantha Pynn, who was delighted to come to the rescue. A major expansion, or even a plumbing switch, was ruled out pretty quickly. "I dont spend that much time in here," explains Virginia. "For one or two people, it was big enough. I wanted a drastic makeover but without having to knock down walls."
