Renovations, The Buffalo BurrowMaster Bath Tile Pairings February 5, 2020 This is a sponsored post by Lowe’s Home Improvement. All opinions are 100% my own. I have been so excited about the tile in the master bath! As a reminder, here is the design plan we’re going for. SOURCES: Inspiration Image FOUNDATION:Beadboard color: HGTV HOME by Sherwin Williams Conduit Gray | Black & White Floor Tile | Marble Subway for Shower | Raw Wood Vanity from Lowe’s Diamond Cabinet Line DETAILS:Delta Shower Head | White Distressed Lantern | French White Rustic Wall Sconce | Delta Faucet | Blue Gray Linen Bath Towels This room held a lot of challenges, but the design we’re going for turned what I saw as challenges into major strengths. Don’t you just love when that happens? The first piece of this puzzle is installed and I’m so excited to share this tile. Ahh, just look at that black patterned floor you guys! I fell in love with that black tile as soon as I saw it. I love the classic feel of it. Something about it just felt at home in an old house. The view of it in this center hallway is starting to create that big focal point I envisioned here. Picture a bench under that window with some throw pillows and those gorgeous lanterns hung down the hallway overhead. Most bathrooms require mixing some tile. That can be a challenge, but it can also be really fun! I love classic marble and as soon as I saw the black tile floor, I immediately picture it with marble. We went with large marble subway tiles on the shower walls and this smaller marble hexagon tile on the floor. I love the subtle pattern change and I LOVE it beside the patterned floors. Here’s a full front-on look at this new gorgeous shower. We did an inset for storing soap and a corner bench like we have in the past. I love for a tiled shower to go all the way to the ceiling. It does add more cost, but I like not having sheetrock above the tile from a function and longevity stand point, but I also love how it looks to have the tile go to the ceiling. We all have our preferences and for me, lines going to the ceiling is one of them. It’s why I always hang my curtains at ceiling height – it just changes the feel and height of the room! Here’s a view of where the vanity will go and another view of the two tiles together. L-O-V-E. Black Tile | Marble Hexagon Tile | Large Marble Subway Tile I’m so excited to see the wood vanity against this tile and all of the details to make this area such a special focal point in the space. We decided to run the tile throughout this space for consistency. More of this pretty tile is a win in my book! It makes this space with all of the doors and different rooms feel less choppy than if the flooring switched for the closets. Tile can be really hard to choose and mix because seeing one small sample of something is very different than seeing it all over a 12 x 12′ space. But I couldn’t be happier with how these two tiles turned out and play together in this room. Y’all know I love eclectic elements in my designs. I love mixing colors, mixing tile, mixing pattern, mixing metals. It gives a space such a collected feel! When I was searching for the tile for this house, I fell in love with so many gorgeous options. I wish I could create a space around all of them and maybe someday, I will. Here are a few of my other top three tile choices I loved and some fun details that play well with them. If you’re designing a bathroom (or these would translate to a kitchen or entry as well), here’s a little more inspiration for you! Paint Color: HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams Bohemian Lace | Delta Oil-rubbed Bronze Shower Fixture | Tan Patterned Tile | Cream Penny Tile I fell hard for this tan patterned tile. So hard, in fact, that it’s making an appearance in our kids’ bath upstairs! I think it would be so lovely with a creamy neutral back drop. We’re using HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams Bohemian Lace throughout our house and I love the creamy white of it! It isn’t too cream, but isn’t at all stark white. It’s so warm. It’ll show up in our kitchen, above the bead board in this bath, and most every other room! One thing I’ve wanted to do for awhile that isn’t showing up in this house is to do a patterned tile shower. I think it would be so fun to use this tan tile on the shower walls and then do the cream penny tile on the shower floor and then continue it throughout the bathroom floor for consistency and flow in the space. Then, add some oil-rubbed bronze fixtures to anchor the space. Paint Color: HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams Parliament Green | Delta Champagne Bronze Shower Fixture | Classic White Subway Tile | Green Patterned Tile I’ve always loved green and gold together and this sage and white tile is so so pretty. How gorgeous would it be on a bathroom floor with a classic white subway tile shower? I’d pull this lovely dark green in for major contrast. If you want to go really lovely and moody, paint the walls and trim. For just a classic nod, it would look great on the trim and doors. I absolutely love how old houses always had white walls with colored trim. Or if you’re just looking for a fun pop, it would look great on the vanity! Adding in gold fixtures with all of these cool tones really provides some warmth and contrast. Paint Color: HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams Powder Blue | Black Shower Fixtures | Classic Marble Tile | Gray Patterned Tile This gorgeous patterned gray tile is actually the same tile we’re using in our kitchen, but in a neutral palette. I love the shades of light gray and charcoal and how it provides some statement-making pattern without being too bold if colorful isn’t your thing. I’d do it on a bathroom floor with the classic marble shower. And then powder blue would be so pretty with these on the walls either in bead board like we’ve done, all the walls, or even just the trim. Add a little matte black fixture to anchor it. This is shaping up to be my favorite bathroom, and one of my favorite overall rooms, I’ve ever designed. Next up, we’re tackling the bead board walls!
