Last week, I was fit to be tiled with tile samples for the master bathroom coming out the ying yang. After reading all your great feedback (THANKS!) and talking with glass artists Pam & Oded Ravek, I’ve made my final written-in-stone decision :-) The floor tiles were already a definite right from the start – 12” x 24” moonstone (the samples in the picture below are 3” x 6”). They’ll be accented with a band of Bianca Carrara mosaic tile.
The white wavy tile was a big hit with everyone – it’s going on the walls in the shower surround. The striped tile that I absolutely LOVE will go into the niches in the shower and the wall behind the tub. Then I made a total change from the accent tiles I was considering – I’m going to use a clear glass & marble mosaic, bordered on each side with a steely blue glass pencil tile.
Here’s a close-up of the glass mosaic. The textured glass tiles have an iridescent finish, which adds a nice little touch of bling (I’m all about the bling!). The marble tiles will tie in with the marble on the floor.
And it just so happens that this colour scheme works perfectly with my blue glass floats :-)
Once we sort out the tiles for the shower floor, that’ll be one more thing to cross off the list. This past week, we picked up two American Standard Studio sinks…
And a Toto Aquia wall-hung toilet…
I’ve decided not to do wainscoting, Although I love the look of tiled wainscoting, I realized that there really won’t be enough wall space to properly showcase wainscoting. And buying all that tile would be expensive.
Hubby plans to start demoing the bathroom around September first. Can’t wait!
