Shame that fancy shower controller and wall plates don't line up with the tile pattern. Is that a gloss surface on the tiles?

That bamboo on that vanity? We have a pair like that in the master bath. That and the basement bath uses a porcelain top that looks very much like that one. Nice selections you've got there.

Thanks, :smile:

Actually the bottom of the cut out for the switches and the control are both on the same grout line on the bottom. I guess that isn't how you do it, oh well?

It's a "Cypress" pattern I think...

Wife wanted me to duplicate this:

Found a tile called "White Ice" by Surfaces.net out of Florida, marble wasn't going to happen...

Heh, most things look best in person. Pictures from websites/magazines don't tell you just how heavily they were staged or 'shopped.

I'll have to take some pix of our master bath. Very much the same vibe as HB.

Its the exact Waterworks glass tile at the top and it looks much darker in our bathroom.

Grout and thinset color has a lot to do with it, but so does Photoshopping pictures.

I went with a brighter white for the grout in some glass to get a little more pop out of it (while using something a little less white for the field tile). It was really tricky to get grout colors figured out. What seemed good when looking at tile samples wasn't as good when looking at actual lighting conditions in new build. Made it a bit of a hassle to get it sorted last-minute, but worth it in the end.
