    Christine Pittel: That rectangular tub is so chic. But no curves — is it comfortable?

    Amanda Reilly: Absolutely. You can lean back, and it feels really good because the water comes almost up to your neck — it’s like a Japanese soaking tub.

    Did you think twice about putting such a big tub in such a small space?

    Still, you didn’t have all that much space in here. How come the room doesn’t feel tight?

    Because we raised the ceiling from seven-and-a- half to nine feet to capture more space. That was the big move. Then I came up with the idea of building out the wall and doing the cove lighting.
