--Here is the custom layout.
--A separate makeup vanity for me to sit at in the mornings with adequate counter space.
--Tile in the shower (instead of all fiberglass) with vertical accent tile.
--Tile on the ground. We originally chose a 12 by 12 "greige" non-descript tile offered by Lexar like below.
--Tile surround above the bathtub.
--Subway tile counter-to-ceiling backsplash with a herringbone-ish style design.
THEN, we decided.. NO, we are not going to settle for crappy floor tile. Nope. Too difficult to remove and change in 5 years.. So, we picked a tile company called Daltile that Lexar can use, and we spent an hour or so picking out tile we liked. I love love love tile that looks like fabric/linen, so we initially chose the following tiles:
Shower square 12 by 12 tiles
Moroccan tiles as one accent in shower and around bath.
Blue-ish fabric art linen-looking tile for the ground in 12 by 24. (I actually still love this tile.)
But then, we went to Daltile again, this time in Seattle, and my husband saw these 3 tiles together and he no longer wanted our previous tile choices.
We like taupe, what can we say? Honestly, I do like the chevron accent tile, but I'm afraid it's too trendy and will be out of style very quickly.. but, Graham held very strong opinions for it, so chevron tile it is.
So, these are our final choices:
Shower tile in 4 by 12, stacked horizontally in Chenille White Limestone.
Stone chevron tile accent with one vertical line in shower and horizontal tub surround in Fusion Gris.
Floor tile in Exhibition Tweed 12 by 24.
We are still considering wall colors, such as a slate blue, or a taupe-gray or violet.. but we will probably take our sample tiles to match paint colors. Our master bedroom colors are gray, cream, with blue/purple-ish accents, so we are looking for a coordinating color. We will update later..
