Now & Zen: A Renovated Chicago Flat

In Chicago, a dilapidated red-brick brownstone gets a makeover that blends historic with modern Asian.

Zen-like simplicity in the master bathroom is created with a large whirlpool tub mounted amid stone-like tile and a walk-in shower/steam room with a waterfall showerhead. A seven-foot counter with dual sinks assures that couples can comfortably share the space.
