We decided to tile the bathroom and the ensuite exactly the same, required less brain power we thought. We had in mind glossy white wall tiles and we chose some that have a sort of ripple to the surface rather than dead flat. The floor tiles took some debating, we were close in our choices but not quite the same. Steve wanted grey while I wanted a slightly warmer colour, more mushroom. Steve got his way...so I got to have my way with the kitchen instead.
You know when you read a novel and it talks about an old bleached, whitewashed beach cottage with scrubbed timbers and a sparkling ocean and warm, soft sand? That's where I was headed, kitchen colours to be something like the beach, sand colour and sea colour, so have thrown caution to the wind and chosen these gorgeous blue wall tiles with a matching border tile. My first choice was actually a very glossy, very bright greeny aqua.... you should have seen the look on Steve's face when I called him over to see :-) - he ran off to find something a little less shocking and he found these, they are actually a floor tile so are not glossy. They are rustic and beautiful and I love them!
Hopefully it will all look okay.
