Just a quick update because Brandon and I made it over to the Tile Shop this morning to scout out tiles for the master bathroom. In the guest bathroom, we are going with a really classic look – white ceramic subway tiles for the shower surround, and these white octagons with black accent squares on the floor:
We figure with that combo we can introduce some interesting color on the walls, but if you could see the paint sample army that has overtaken the house, you’d know we’re not quite there on that decision.
In any case, we figured we’d make the upstairs bath a little bit more “us,” and pick tiles/colors that we love, since no one else will be using that bathroom. As of today, these are our favorites – but I am always interested to hear what you guys think! Anyone have experience with these or similar tiles? Love ’em? Hate ’em? Let us know!
For the floor, we love these little 3/4″ hexagons in the “gloss moss” finish:
And for the shower surround, I’ve always loved the idea of glass subway tiles. Today we perused the colors available, and liked both Water:
And Antique Moss:
I worry that the second one will be a bit too dark – but we are going with a light color on the walls (probably Lacey Pearl by Benjamin Moore, which is pretty neutral and seemed to look good with both options). Here they both are next to the floor tiles:
(The price tags on the glass subway tile makes me cry a little bit… but I think we’ll be coming in under budget on most of the other tile selections, so hopefully we can make it work!)
