beach house remodel. the tile.

Hi friends, sharing some of the finishes I've selected for the house. First, this incredible, marvelous, devilishly handsome geometric tile - hand painted terra cotta from LA's Native Tile. The moment I walked into Filmore Clark, I knew this was perfect for our first floor powder room. Done. 


Now onto the master bath backsplash, also from Filmore Clark. It's from Pratt & Larson, handmade in Portland, Oregon. How about this indigo wash? Perfect for our beachy modern bathroom. 


Now onto the guest bath. I thought I was over marble, after I slathered it all over our historic Philly house. Alas no, no way. I came across a slab of skyline marble with these dramatic gold streaks throughout and asked it to live in my guest bath. We agreed to use it as the bathtub surround and as the countertop for the vanity. 

The shower wall and floor tiles I kept very simple. I wanted the lease amount of grout as possible. I used 32x32" natural quartz tiles on the floors and 12x24" white ceramic on the walls. 

Below is the sample along side a sample of Skyline Marble tile.
