Hello Tile

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.

Here is a closeup.

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.

Here is the beginning of the shower.

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.


  1. AMAZING! I totally agree! It would have been way too busy and this looks fabulous!

  2. I'm in love with all of it! You two really have great taste! Make sure you post pictures when its all done ;-)

  3. I love the white subway tile. We did the same in our shower and I love how clean it looks. Great blog!

  4. Oh, nice! I love the white tile, it is so fresh and clean looking. We have it in our garden tub but both showers are molded plastic - yuck!

  5. I love the tile you chose! The basket weave is my favorite.

  6. Great choices. I used the carrara mosaic and subway tiles in our 3rd floor shower. I liked your other choices and look forward to seeing it finished.

    Hello lover (and fellow decorpad buddy)!! I am SO in love w/ your exquisite marble floor--that cararra, that basketweave....STUNNING!

    I definitely think the white subway tiles were the right choice. Timeless perfection!

    Cannot wait to see the final product!!

  8. Of course I love this!! It looks great and I think the subway tiles were the right choice.
