I really like this house. I could be comfortable living there.

The coolest laundry room arrangement I have seen had the laundry room next to the Master Bath and Master Bedroom and it was also huge walk in closet. That means the clothes were taken off, washed and then stored in close proximity. That is great logistics.

I love the way the walls curve to reflect the curved Second Empire roof. That style roof, where it curves around and takes in the walls, is very popular in France and that was where it originated. It was very common in the "Second Empire" period (the reign of Napoleon III), but it actually goes back a couple of hundred years before that. In the U.S. it was used for a lot of public buildings in the 1870's and is sometimes called the "General Grant" style.

Is it too early to nominate for 2013? I am nominating my blog, which has nothing to do with interior design and everything to do with designing your home. These are two different things, but I surely fit the criteria of a home design blog.

I would go with a custom tub. I had a custom shower base installed for a small bathroom. It occurs to me that anyone who could do that could do the same thing on a larger scale to make a deep, built-in tub. Otherwise go with the Japanese, and get the whole recirculating water thing. The keep the water recirculating and warm. They leave the water in, which is pretty gross if you are a hairy gaijin like me, but that doesn't mean you would have to.
