Funky glass tile for bathroom

Yes, I’m the same human in this family who just posted about the silliness of being concerned about silverware-drawer-location issues.  Yes, I frequently bitch and moan (internally, if not vocally) about the tedium of dealing with the details.  But some of them are fun.

It’s been a few months since we first traveled to Best Tile to look at stuff we might put on our walls and floors, so it took some time to find the photos we’d saved on the computer.  But when we did, it was just as cool to see some of these interesting shapes–and this one was still our favorite, as an accent in the shower or around the bathroom wall.

(That is my handsome husband’s face peeking out above the sample.)

We are at that point where we’re choosing these things–which wood will panel our hallway walls, what color the quartz composite countertops will be.

It can be the fun stuff, but I have to admit to still getting impatient–why can’t we just start BUILDING this house?–and wanting to get past the small stuff to the big thing of having a house of our own.

    When we built our house we knew, because of our “life plans,” that would be our last house. (We have lived in 6 others prior to this.) So we wanted to stay “neutral” in terms of bathroom tile, so we could easily change colors via towels and other elements.

    We therefore sought out “interesting tiles” and in this photo, you can see the textured/patterned we chose for our master suite.

    Peter–what a beautiful master bath! You’ll like ours, once it’s finished–much the same esthetic, even the plumbing fixtures are similar. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing that!

  3. Welcome to the neighborhood! We’ve been wondering when all those sticks and flags will become structures. Please drop us a note or come by and we can try to explain the turquoise roof–spawned by whimsy rather than deliberation.
