Some people have to hire talent. Others can simply lie in bed and conjure a drawer recessed behind furniture feet under a mirror centered below a cathedral ceiling with an unexpected window tucked under its peak. "I wanted a little drama," says Elizabeth Frazer, who wasn't even conscious when she came up with this scheme for her bath redo. "She'll dream it, wake up, and draw it," says her husband, Tim, who used her sketches to build his-and-hers vanities and the room to go around them.
The now larger, window-lined space holds two marble-topped vanities, a tub, a shower, and a revamped laundry area. Porcelain floor tile approximates the look of natural slate but won't spot or stain.
