Lori says she started with materials she liked and put the design together from there, with no backward glances or second guesses, which is good, because she was on a tight schedule. Lori and her husband bought the circa-1990s home in late 2002, and she had only a couple of months to come up with designs for the areas they wanted to change. One of those changes included turning the original master bath, a suspect blend of pink porcelain and Southwest-style tiles, into an office and taking space from an extra bedroom for the master bath. The main reason for the rearrangement was privacy. The old master bath had huge windows around it with a view straight into the next-door neighbor's house.
