What about the tile?

Although we have all of the tile for our master bath, the project has been put on hold until the outside of the house is painted. We did, however, have some fun with the tile to check what it is going to look like!

This is what the walls will look like. The 9x12 will be on the walls from the floor until about 5 feet in the shower. Then the accent piece (an awesome 12x12 glass mosaic cut into strips). On top of that will be the matching 6x6 pieces. Now I have to figure out if I can convince Adam to lay the 6x6 tiles on an angle.....?
**Cutting a 12x12 mosaic into strips is quite a bit less expensive than regular accent pieces. I couldn't find any accent pieces that I liked enough and then we came up with this idea!
In the bathroom area (not shower) the 9x12 tiles will come up to about 3 feet with the accent piece and then a bull nose on top.

This is what the floor tile looks like. It is very similar to the 9x12 color, but a slightly different pattern.

I can't wait to see it up on the walls. I hope it looks as good as I am imagining! We knew we had to pick something we would love for a long time because when we have money to do projects, we certainly won't be redoing something that has already been done already!

What do you think? Put the 6x6 tiles straight or on an angle????
