The tile was started in our bathroom this week. I could not be more excited (well that is kind of a lie, I would be more excited if the entire bathroom was finished - and if someone else was paying for it). For starters its nice to finally get to see some of the items we have picked out actually going into place. On top of that this also means our washer and dryer can FINALLY be delivered! We have been without a washer and dryer for a whopping 6 weeks now. This has been absolutely zero fun, and as pathetic as it sounds I cannot wait to do laundry in my own home. Here is a look at the floor which is now finished.
The tile is a carrara mosaic with blue dots, and is surrounded by rows of a blue stone rectangular mosaic and then large carrara squares.
One of the decisions that was hardest for us to make was whether to do marble on the walls or white subway tiles. My husband was really leaning for the marble tile and I was really torn. We eventually decided on the subway tile and now that its all going in I'm really happy with the decision. I was very afraid that the marble on the walls and marble and mosaic on the floor would make for a very busy combination and now that the floor is all laid I definitely think it would have. I think the subway tiles are going to look great - very crisp and clean. Plus it's a whole lot cheaper than the marble! The rest of the tile is on hold for now until we get the chair rail in and we get our cabinets and vanity - hopefully these will happen in the next week or two - cross your fingers.
