I started with a classic design - white hex tile floor and subway tile shower/tub enclosure and lavatory back splash. Plus a glass block panel above the tub.
Then a nice basket-weave ceramic tile appeared in This Old House magazine and the design started to morph as I looked for that product.When, I saw this lovely 5/8" travertine multi-color square tile (above) it became the focal point of the room and knocked out the basket-weave floor.
My budget knocked the sunken Greek tub out of the design and the idea of a continuous floor into the shower was born. This beautiful aggressively textured tile (below) was perfect - except the 12x12 inch tiles won't accommodate the gradual slope to the shower drain.
Finally, here is where we landed:
- Multicolor 5/8 inch travertine tile on one shower wall,
- Ceramic Adex brand 2x4 inch subway tile for the remaining shower walls and backing the lavatory/water-closet in bone (warm white),
- Half-round travertine "pencil-line" tiles to finish the edges,
- Textured porcelain 6x6 inch floor tile and bullnose base tile in sandalwood (nicely variegated).
Oh, I'm also thinking about mounting the subways in the vertical.
Where did you file the multi-color tile -- we are redoing a kitchen and that is perfect.ReplyDelete
Multicolor tile was all over the Los Angeles and Orange County tile outlets, but the only place we found this combination with the red tiles was at Classic Tile & Mosaic www.ctandm.com. They are close to the house.ReplyDelete
