Today we are talking about tile, and not just any tile, but my fave – affordable tile. After changing our mind a few times over the last year on our bathroom design and visiting every local tile shop from high end to low (as well as looking online), we ended up back at the start at Floor & Decor. Not just because it is affordable, but because they really have the best options for the look we are trying to achieve.

For the master bathroom we have decided to go with a Black Decorative Slate tile in a herringbone pattern just like you see in the inspo pic below. I dig that the tiles vary in color from one to another. We want the shower to feel like a stone “cave” but with a luxurious touch with the pattern, so we felt that slate was the best to achieve this. We have a large window in our shower that will look out into a garden so you will see a lot of green when you are showering and light will come through into the space to brighten up the shower.

We really struggled with tile for the guest bathroom. There is no window in here so we don’t want it to feel cramped with any dark colors, but we were trying to force a white tile that just doesn’t exist so we walked around Floor & Decor until it hit us. We brought up this picture we loved from Pinterest a million years ago and decided to go with the Terra Nuova Brushed Marble tile in the 16 x 24″ size. The tones vary slightly so you get the effect like in the picture, but it also has a natural stone look we adore. We are also toying with the idea of tiling the floor of the bathroom in the marble as well to give it a lux appeal and Bali-villa vibe that we love (thoughts?). Don’t you just love this sink and orchid too? Will definitely be channeling that spa look when I decorate.

It is funny how freeing it is to know which tile you are going with after thinking about it for months. Now we wait until we can actually put it down, which will be the most exciting part. Waiting truly is the hardest part. xx, B
